Sosobad O'Brien shuts down republican blame-shifter. Almost.
I was a bit shocked to watch, actually...that dopey black "Republican Strategist" (there are strategists behind this mess?!) with the serious lisp was on Cabal News Network this morning, doing his best to minimize the Foley/Hastert debacle by -- of course -- blaming Gerry Studds in 1983, and essentially claiming the Republicans should get a pass on this scandal because "no one was outraged" in 1983 when Studds got busted and censured for banging a page. The most childish but oft-used Republican defense for everything... "But he did it first!" They never even consider the high road. They never consider that perhaps another man getting caught and censured for such reprehensible behavior is NOT equal to a get-out-of-jail-free card. Anyway, Sosobad actually did a decent job of shutting the jerk down, although it is clear he had been to his Rove University training classes -- even as Sosobad was telling him to shut up, he just talked louder, over her, until she finally got some control back and managed to point out how silly and desperate it looked for the Republicans to have to reach back over twenty years in this lame attempt to make this all okay.

It was surprisingly tough for Sosobad. Oh, but wait...

After she slaps him with the desperation comment, she then let the asshole have the last word, which he used to re-read his morning Blast Fax from the Home Office. Oh well...it was fun while it lasted.

2. Cokehead Roberts on NPR (Neocon Public Relations) whined on about
how the North Korean nuclear test could help the Republicans in November elections, somehow missing the fact that the reason why Kim Jon Il might NUKE LOS ANGELES IS BECAUSE THE U.S. WAS FUCKED INTO IRAQ BY PNAC AND THE NEOCONS, AND NOW CANNOT GET OUT (WHICH THEY KNEW WOULD HAPPEN WHEN THEY FUCKED THE U.S. IN).

5. Not to mention that the affair Studds had was 10 years earlier, in 1973
So they're reaching back 33 years. 1983 is when they dug it up and when Studds was censuredalong with Republican congressman Dan Crane who had had his own affair with a female page, a fact I notice these guys never mention, and the talking heads politely let them get away with.
