WTF? Breaking on my Tee Vee, the Chris Mathews' show?
Edited on Sun Oct-08-06 11:09 AM by Nimrod2005
At the end of the show, the panel makes predictions..etc. Something we don't know yet is going to happen:

Tucker said there will be another Congressman named, involved in sex with pages...etc.

Chris said I AGREE!!!

Did someone else catch it?

What do they know? What do others know????

9. If is was a Dem
they would have said immediately, even if they didn't want to say the name. They are deseparate to drown out the Rethug scandal.

10. It's a Republican.
John Avarosis has been working on this, he knows who it may be but can't confirm yet.

20. If 5% of American men are gay
that suggests there may be as many as a dozen closeted gay republicans. Lots of material to work with.

37. I feel that if closeted gays are doing the Republican Party's bidding
by going along with anti-gay legislation, etc., that their hypocrisy should be exposed. Why should they be allowed to hurt thousands of people but keep up their facade of "straightness"?

34. GAY PEOPLE AREN'T PEDOPHILES!!
Sheesh, if Democrats can't get it right, how can Joe Six-Pack, who hears the gay=pedophile crap on the MSM, get that through his thick head?

39. What makes you think the Congressman they're talking about is gay?
Couldn't this be between a male Congressman and a female page? Why jump immediate to a closeted-gay conclusion?

41. I saw this last night
Tucker specifically said it was a het-er-o. I say it's October, if it works go with a witch hunt. It will take the wind out of the mass extinction fear sail they are trying to spread before midterms.

3. Does Hastert have a secret?
I always wonder about wrestling coaches. And when people say "he's such a great family man" and it winds up he lives most of the time with his male assistant.

Just sayin...

22. His daddy is some publishing bigwig
Tucker got his job by riding on his father's connections. Just like Dan Abrahms did. And Chris Wallace.

18. IIRC a gaggle of Puggies got their covers blown (no pun intended)

19. Makes you wonder how much shit these assholes know, and don't report.
Remember the leaked footage of Matthews talking to Tom Delay, and apologizing for talking about something on-air that was "embargoed"?

It really makes me wonder how much shit guys like Matthews know, and never report.

He's a repug of the highest order. And you know his hands are filthy dirty, it's just a matter of catching him.

30. what would be very interesting about that - is that Hastert
initially tagged Drier as the temporary replacement for DeLay - until the religious righties in the House fought him on it and Drier feigned no interest. If the allusions are to Drier, and if Hastert was aware - Hastert loses not only his Speakership - but probably his seat.

Speculating - but I don't really think that is the scenario.

32. I have read rumors for some time --but who knows? Why Repeat w/o evid?
I read "The List" and found a female Congressman listed there, but without more there is just the bare allegation. IS it right to smear a member of Congress with a rumor, with absolutely no evid to back it up? I think not. That is the domain Karl Rove operates in, and we should not go there if we have any standards higher than his.
