It's official! Hastert now radioactive!

AP:

House Speaker Dennis Hastert's political support showed signs of cracking on Wednesday as Republicans fled an election-year scandal spawned by steamy computer messages from former Rep. Mark Foley to teenage male pages.

And, for some reason, Republicans don't want to be in the same photograph with Hastert anymore: Read below the fold...

Hated for Living

I finally figured out why Bill Clinton was / is so despised. He lives.

Unlike the Republicans in power, he doesn't exist in pursuit of some distant goal. He grabs every minute, enjoys it and passes it along. The Republicans and the media and the establishment all hate Bill Clinton for living. Read below the fold...

Military Training Programs: Now More Chinese

It should've been a huge red flag (indeed, it was for some of us) when Bush refused to allow the US to sign on the International Criminal Court system with the rest of the civilized world back in 2002. Just as I pointed out recently that some people were told about an upcoming war well before everyone else, the astute could (and can) tell what the Bush administration is plannning on doing in large part by analysis of what they won't do.

Blogger Loses Libel Case: A First

This is a surprisingly good article on blogs and lawsuits and the future of the "Wild West" Internet. The bottom line seems clear: if on your blog, you make something up about a person with the money to take you to court, you'll lose. I'm fine with that.

Teen:

Can we please stop this nonsense that Conngressman Foley (R-Neverland) didn't have sex with minors?

Morning Single Mom Blogging: Gods & Babies

Thread: 

Looks like the little angel is going to give me an hour of freetime this morning, so I thought I’d share some thoughts before we’re off to the races.
My niece’s mother is an avid reader; she’s one of those people who I think is wasted in the corporate world, such a fine and curious mind has she. So in quiet spells, I’ve been doing a little review of her library, and one of her most recent shopping sprees at the bookstore resulted in a bevy of books on religion, a subject dear to my heart.

The only "friend" that says Foley is an alcoholic is Foley's lawyer

"Step 1: We admitted we were powerless over the Kool-Aid"

Yeah, if there were a Republican 12-Step program, that would indeed be Step 1. Actually, I was going to write "...powerless over the lust for power" but that's just part of the Kool-Aid.

Gross Old Pervs.

Well, surprise, it turns out--and in just a couple of news cycles--that though Mark Foley (R-Neverland) checked into rehab, he may need a 12-step prograom for Kool-Aid. But not for alchohol: Read below the fold...
