Misc Commentary For Sept 29, 2006
— Foley resigns from Congress over e-mails: The original emails Foley sent out to that page were creepy, but explainable. The moment I heard that he was resigning, I knew there was more to the story…and there was (What follows are text messages from Foley to a page):
“Maf54: You in your boxers, too?
Teen: Nope, just got home. I had a college interview that went late.
Maf54: Well, strip down and get relaxed.
Maf54: What ya wearing?
Teen: tshirt and shorts
Maf54: Love to slip them off of you.
And this one:
Maf54: Do I make you a little horny?
Teen: A little.
The good news is that we may have a chance to retain the seat, although the rules sound a little wacky:
“Florida Republicans planned to meet as soon as Monday to name a replacement in Foley’s district, which President Bush won with 55 percent in 2004 and is now in play for November. Though Florida ballots have already been printed with Foley’s name and cannot be changed, any votes for Foley will count toward the party’s choice.”
The bad news is that Foley is a gay pedophile who sounds as if he has been trying to use the House page program as a dating service. Hopefully, there will be a thorough investigation and if it turns out that Foley broke the law — and it sounds as if some of his comments could be construed as sexually soliciting a minor — here’s hoping that Foley will be prosecuted to fullest extent of the law.
— Is George Soros quitting politics?
“In the future, I’d very much like to get disengaged from politics,” Soros said at a Council on Foreign Relations meeting on the Upper East Side. “I’m interested in policy and not in politics.”
There’s a lot of wiggle room in that and somehow, I doubt that it means he’s going to stop funneling money to liberal candidates and causes.
— Believe it or not, Oprah has named Kos as one of the sexiest men alive. Kos — from the Daily Kos. There’s no need for me to write commentary about that, because the commentary practically writes itself.
— Here’s the latest quote about George Bush from Democratic Senator, Ted Kennedy:
“Why don’t you tell them how many million citizens of America and its allies you intend to kill in search of the imaginary victory and in breathless pursuit of the mirage towards which you are driving your people’s sons in order increase your profits?”
Oh wait…that was actually from Al-Qaida’s 2nd in command, Ayman al-Zawahri. Sorry about the mix-up, it’s just a little hard sometimes to tell the difference between liberals Al-Qaeda when they’re talking about Bush or Iraq.
— The cretins at Wonkette actually posted a photoshopped pic of Michelle Malkin in a bikini today, suggested to their readers that it was real, and then, even after Michelle bluntly told them it was fake, their sister site Gawker posted the photo as if were real, too. That sounds like a clear cut case of libel to me.
Then, even after the fact, neither blog apologized for maliciously smearing Michelle. That just goes to show you that anti-Christian zealot Ken Layne and the rest of the clowns at Wonkette and Gawker are real scumbags.
Update #1: I received this email Saturday night,

Subject: GOP news
I searched all over your website but couldn’t find your response to Foley’s resignation. Why not? I’d like to read your comments about this. As the family values party, why are so many Republican congressman doing such bad things? Foley is a predator of teen age boys. Ney just resigned because he’s corrupt. Cunningham, too. My, my, if your party is so keen on values, why are you people such abhorrent human beings?
Please post this. I dare you!
