2. That's pretty much what everyone has been saying. The times
polled evangelicals who said it wouldn't change their mind about voting republican. They saw the problem as being "the gays" and they thought the democrats were more sympathetic to them. You will NEVER change these people's mind to vote democratic.

3. That's party because the Republicans and the Media were able
to create the illusion that "both parties were equally to blame"

4. I would hardly expect people to change their affiliation out right
This in no way says Foley hasn't impacted the GOP's standing with the people.

5. Is that really a fair question?
ALL Republicans didn't cover for Foley, just a few near the top. It would have been a better question to ask if they would vote for those guys again.

It's not that shocking anyway, 600,000+ dead Iraqis, legalized torture, etc., what's a little sleazy instant messaging in comparison to all the rest they've swallowed?

6. The worst of all deceptions is self-deception.

And a slightly more recent quote:

You have an amazing capacity for self-deception. How do you do that?
