Matt Drudge - Pedophile? LOL

Well, that might be going overboard. He only supports pedophiles with their habit when they are Republican congressmen.

There's a difference, right?

On the October 2 edition of his nationally syndicated radio program, Internet gossip Matt Drudge stated that Foley's sexually explicit alleged communication with a minor through an instant-messenger program "wasn't coerced." Drudge went on to say that "the kid was having fun with this" because the alleged conversation included "[t]hese LOLs throughout the entire conversation, these 'laugh out louds.' " Drudge even went so far as to accuse the underage former pages -- whom he twice referred to as "beasts" -- of "egging the Congressman on" during their alleged conversations, claiming that "[t]hese kids were playing Foley for everything he was worth," as Media Matters for America noted.
But this coverup is across the board with Republican politicians (Gingrich, et al.), spokespeople (Snow, et al.), and media celebreties (Limbaugh, et al.).

I would hang my head and stay inside for a week if I were a self-respecting Republican right now. This is a disgrace so far beyond that previous Clinton disgrace. Where is the outrage at the acts? Where is the outrage at the cover-up? Where is the outrage at the cover-up of the cover-up? We're talking about *children*.

Vote the other ticket in the election. Then they get to investigate everyone for the next couple of years to find out what's really been going on in congress and the administration.

And how about that congressman (Reynolds?) who brought some "kids from his community" to his press conference so the media could not ask detailed questions about sex?

LOL indeed.

Dunno, Patrick. Supposedly, this kid was 18 - which makes him an adult, legally speaking. Care to differntiate this from the Monica stuff, based on that?

Does bad behavior only count when it's a Republican? I don't condone Foley, but the double standard in play here is kind of amazing.

I don't condone the Monica "episode". I have several problems with Clinton, and that is one. So while she was a subordinate, she was also a consenting adult.

The problem in this case is not just Foley's behavior (which from what I have read involves a number of *underage* pages), but also the cover-up.

The *cover-up* is what really concerns me. It seems to be extensive and long-lasting. As far as I know, there was nothing like this with Monica, outside of Clinton's own lying and "what the definition of 'is' is" BS.
