Conspiracy? GOP Thou Name Thyself

Yesterday MSNBC’s Mike Viqueirareported on the GOP whisper campaign that blamed Dems for the Foley mess. TodayHannity andHastert are talking above a whisper inferring someone (read Dems) had this info and released it just before the election to hurt Repubs. Of course they offer no details.

As I wroteyesterday on this…

But it has beenreported that Brian Ross received the IM’s from former pages within hours after the first story. It appears the only way the Repubs conspiracy story goes anywhere then is if they allege the Dems put the pages up to it?

Later Iupdated with what I thought was the information that would kill this conspiracy but forgot we’re living in bizarro world…

Mr. Ross dismissed suggestions by some Republicans that the news was disseminated as part of a smear campaign against Mr. Foley.

“I hate to give up sources, but to the extent that I know the political parties of any of the people who helped us, it would be the same party,” Mr. Ross said, referring to Republican.

GOP undone by GOP…Deal With It—–

  1. Some people would rather serve in the minority without sexual predators and their protectors than a majority filled with all manner of vermin. Good for them.

  2. Even if the Democrats *did* release the information – SO WHAT? The GOP sat on this for over a YEAR. In any case, just last month the GOP revealed that it would be spending its massive campaign warchest on digging up dirt on the Democrats.
    Would anyone expect the Democrats to sit on this until AFTER the election, in some bizarre kind of fair play that only the GOP could imagine – for its opponent but never for itself?
    Politics is hardball, and the Republicans are so used to being the only team on the field, that they simply cannot accept their own tactics being used against them. And if the press buys the GOP spin here – shame on them.

  3. hey, if democrats did do this, didn’t they at least save ‘children’? repeating anon.
    i think we need to punish newt for making eveything politics.

  4. Um…this stuff is coming from the pages.
    Which means if anybody “hid” it, they did. Heard an interview with and ABC producer(?) this morning on Democracy Now (check ’em at that name, “.org”). She said the stuff came straight to them from a Capitol Hill source, not a Democrat or a campaign staffer.
    Hastert is so scared he can’t see straight. He’s in a round room looking for a corner to sit in.
