Mark Whitaker, the Editor of Newsweek, was reprimanded by his publisher and had to apologize to the White House, for his fraudulent story in 2004 saying soldiers were throwing Quarans in the Toilets of Iraqi prisons. Newsweek is a liberal joke

In 1983, then-Democratic Rep. Gerry Studds of Massachusetts was caught in a similar situation. In his case, Studds had sex with a male teenage page -- something Foley hasn't been charged with.

Did Studds express contrition? Resign? Quite the contrary. He rejected Congress' censure of him and continued to represent his district until his retirement in 1996.

In 1989, Rep. Barney Frank, also of Massachusetts, admitted he'd lived with Steve Gobie, a male prostitute who ran a gay sex-for-hire ring out of Frank's apartment. Frank, it was later discovered, used his position to fix 33 parking tickets for Gobie.

What happened to Frank? The House voted 408-18 to reprimand him -- a slap on the wrist. Today he's an honored Democratic member of Congress, much in demand as a speaker and "conscience of the party."

In 2001, President Clinton, who had his own intern problem, commuted the prison sentence of Illinois Rep. Mel Reynolds, who had sex with a 16-year-old campaign volunteer and pressured her to lie about it. (Reynolds also was convicted of campaign spending violations.)

I just love the Time cover:
"What a mess...Why a tawdry Washington sex scandal

A BIG overstatement.

may spell the end of the Republican revolution"

Followed by wishful thinking.

Yes. And should we expect anything different from them as they do their best to manipulate the mid-term elections?

WRONG.

Your tax dollars will buy them and enshrine them in libraries in every city in this country and in schools where students will get "educated" about those corrupt and sinful Republicans who must've surely stolen another election back in 2006 for a party of creeps like that to win again.

DEFUND THE LEFT and get this trash out of our schools. It is considered the "respectable" research material but it hardly qualifies as such.

1. I love the bullet point post...
Edited on Mon Oct-09-06 01:09 PM by skypilot
...about Studds, Frank and Clinton. I'm almost tempted to register over there just so that I can post the armchairsubversive.com list of all the Repub sex offenders. The list is considerably longer than three measly names.

11. I just checked out armchairsubversive.com
and I have come to the conclusion that the reason why these repuke "christian holier than thou" pro-lifers are so against abortion. They want these kids around so they can sexually molest them. Damn sick bunch of morons. :puke:

12. There was a great post here...
...a while back after someone posted a link to that sight. I don't remember the DUer but the post was something like:

No wonder they are so hungry for power, they need it to hide behind.

3. Once again the irony escapes them
Foley is old news. But their defense of him, mainly Gerry Studds, Bill Clinton and Barney Frank are current events :eyes:

5. A danger to themselves and others
TOM: That's, I say, that's a rich one there, Hooter!

Oh, I'm a danger to myself and others.
My cousins are as close as brothers.
I stay out in the rain all the time!

CROW: He's a danger to himself and others.
Only likes shows with Sally Struthers.
I can't even think of a word that rhymes.

TOM: Ya just did!

JOEL: How dumb are you Uncle-Dad?

TOM: Well pretty dumb, that's for sure!

CROW: How dumb are you Uncle-Dad?

TOM: Well this pipe's filled with manure!

ALL: We're a danger to ourselves and others.
Screw the earth and steal our mothers.
Leave us in the woods and we're just fine.
We're a danger to ourselves and others.
Good livestock with better lovers.
Hunting leeches is what we call a good time!



BOOM! BOOM!

10. Mystery Science Theater 3000
Edited on Mon Oct-09-06 01:26 PM by YOY
An episode where they lampoon a film called "Attack of the Giant Leeches." (1959) Many of the protagonists were FReepish backwoods types of the early late 50s/60s. It brings to mind many of the FReep comments.

Like those thinking that Newsweek is a 'Liberal Magazine'...compared to what??? These people think anything left of Limbaugh is 'liberal'. Idiots have swung so far right they're blinded by the (IMHO just right of) center.
