The Fabulous Old Party

Gay Republicans — we can't get away from them. Andrew Sullivan is in the kitchen now, drinking me wife's tea! Gaah! They're even now peeking out from inside me wife's blouse! I can't even take a bath without six or seven gay Republicans jumping in with me! Oh, God!

CBS' Gloria Borger, after Foley's former chief of staff, Kirk Fordham, who is gay, claimed he warned GOP leaders about Foley: "CBS News has learned that several other top Republican staffers who handled the Foley matter are also gay. Their role in this controversy has caused a firestorm among Republican conservatives...."

Excuse me, did you just say "CBS News has learned that several other top Republican staffers who handled the Foley matter are also gay"? Read below the fold...

Framing: Foley is a Gay Pedophile

Say it with me, kids: "Foley is a gay pedophile.

There's been a lot of chatter since this whole mess broke out about how important it is for people not to smear gays with the pedophilia brush. Normally, I'd be the first in that line. Being gay has nothing to do with pedophilia, gays are no more likely to be pedophiles than straight folks, pedophila, like rape, is about power and not sex, etc. All good liberals know the difference and how to make that argument.

But that's not the point. Read below the fold...

Will Watch: "Denial" -- and the denying denier who denies it

Investigative reporter-cum-whore* Bob Woodward dances with Wolfowitzes for six years and finally figures out that Bush's Iraq War is a clusterfuck.

And how does George Will respond to Woodward's new book, State of Denial? Here's a hint: it's in the book's title. Read below the fold...

It's official! Hastert now radioactive!


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. Blogs should be a place where free speech reigns, but it's also the case that lying liars should be held accountable. Read below the fold...
