AP: Foley Resignation Good for Republicans.
No, SERIOUSLY, that’s about the gist of this story:
“Resigning leaves your attackers nowhere to go,” said Eric Dezenhall, a crisis-management consultant. “If this had dragged on, it could have sucked Republicans into the vortex of scandal.”
That’s the SECOND GRAF.
And then we get into “Democrats had consenting adult sex, which is totally just like underage e-mails:”
Bill Clinton used contrition, counterattack and an artful definition of what constitutes sex in his ultimately successful defense against impeachment brought on by his relationship with an intern of legal age.
We go on to list every Democrat who’s ever fucked a prostitute, but nowhere in the story does it even mention that Republicans are the anti-gay party of loving hetero families who believe the Internet is an evil force in our society and that sex on the TV is causing us all to lose our virginity.
It’s thehypocrisy, stupid.
But hey, he resigned, so no big deal. Otherwise, there’d be a huge scandal.
“It’s much harder to defend yourself against something like this than the garden variety sin such as adultery or murky campaign contributions,” he said. “This is not garden variety. This creeps people out.”
