Six fecking years of this while Iraq is going to hell, North Korea is building nukes, Iran gets stronger and braver, Bush spending money like a drunken sailor, our Constitution is being ripped to shreds, etc.

Six year of this.

All the while the Republicans are aware and coving up for another Republican who is a child predator.

And this phony anti-gay front was all aimed at their Evangelical base.

Yes folks, the shit has hit the fan.

1. this is all by design -- social conservatism MUST have an enemy.
foley has allowed christian conservatives to sharpen their attacks on gay folks along the lines of the catholic church -- i.e. gay men are child predators.

but make no mistake -- it is by design.

2. Foley's Folly
People are paying attention to this because sex sells. Maybe the facile lying by the GOP in this matter will wake more Americans up to all the other criminal activities these SOBs have been accused of.

4. Twenty five years actually. It started with Reagan
and his high 'moral ground'. And yes, it is utter irony that this is what is taking them down.
