Palm Beach Diocese asks Foley for the name of his (alleged) abuser

Based on past behavior, I don't think it's likely the Diocese would be asking this question if they thought Foley's story was true. (Remember, the only "friend" who vouched for Foley's alchoholism is also Foley's lawyer). Palm Beach Post:

The Catholic Diocese of Palm Beach has sent a formal letter asking Mark Foley's attorney to identify the clergyman who allegedly abused the former congressman.

Faithless Faggots Feigning Fealty

Feeling Christ-weary? Go watch this C&L Olbermann video and your atheist spirits will surely be uplifted. Suckers. No, really- Rove and Kennyboy have been playing you believers for suckers.

Honestly, I can't make up my mind. Are believers just really stupid, or is it that deep in the secret closets of their hearts, they too push the boundaries of sinfulness and debauchery? Read below the fold...

Your Liberal Media: Signing Statements Edition

Rozen gets it just right: how the fuck can you call yourself an "independent" journalist when you're making promises on paper to politicians not to reveal a political event? Because, a war planning session with the specific purpose of convincing a president to lead a nation to war is an event. Zakaria is a whining beotch. Because, yeah, sure, everybody gets invited to secret, secure locations in Virginia with top administration officials and offered the chance to craft policy months before the rest of the world even knows it's policy. Changing your tune isn't going to help make you more believable, you sluttish punk. Read below the fold...

Snark is Back!

Yes, the blood is in the water, and the lapdogs have tossed aside their collars and taken out the extra rows of teeth. Well, perhaps not all that. But still, this is fun:

Pressed to defend his foreign policy, Bush instead cited the "stakes" involved in the Middle East and North Korea -- 13 times.

"I understand the stakes," Bush announced. "I'm going to repeat them one more time. As a matter of fact, I'm going to spend a lot of time repeating the stakes."

Le mot du jour

Dana Milbank's semiotic analysis of Bush's press conference notes the idiosyncratic ways that the President bobbed and wove. As with last month's torture talk, the more he had to bob, the more he talked about weaving: running out the clock with Eddie Haskellesque fawning over reporters' apparel, as opposed to confessing "I got nuthin'."

"Thank God Cory Lidle's a Lousy Pilot"

...says Denny Hastert.

Wow. I mean come on CNN. Isn't there anything else to talk about?

If Mr. And Mrs. Smith from Brooklyn had been flying that plane we wouldn't be hearing anything about it at all. Read below the fold...

Perfect Holiday Gift for George W. Bush

Hastert, Reynolds radioactive

And it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of pedophile-enabling authoritarian death cultists. WaPo:

Weeks before the Nov. 7 elections, the Mark Foley scandal and its aftermath have already had a visible effect on Republican prospects: Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) and Rep. Thomas M. Reynolds (R-N.Y.), the two men leading the GOP efforts to keep power in the House, have both been largely sidelined from the public campaign.

Compromised AP reporter Solomon pens a second hit piece on Reid

No point giving AP any hits; Lord Kos does an excellent takedown of John Solomon's story.

But let's remember the nugget Xan dug up on Solomon, when he did his first non-story smear on Harry Reid (boxing tickets):

Go read this piece from 2003 from the Center for Public Integrity and decide for yourself:
