FBI coverup
From CNN

CNN runs the story about the FBI’s apparently false account of why it never investigated the Foley case.

Watch it.

Let’s just change the page boys to girls and have Foley hit on them for six years.  Then have someone tell Hastert and his crew about it, no matter when, two years ago, a year ago, five years ago, and have it ignored.  Mothers and fathers wouldn’t make so light of it, would they?  Someone said if a principal of a high school ignored warnings that Foley got, he’d be fired so fast you couldn’t blink.  Remember, please, these aren’t some underlings, they aren’t rank-and-file, they’re the top Leadership of the Republican Party.

I find it highly amusing that Hastert has decided he will be the arbiter of whether or not he goes or stays; of whether he was told or not; of whether he handled the situation in a way that protects the pages.  It is a joke.  An unfunny one, but a joke when Hastert says, “The buck stops here.”  I think he must have meant “the dollar stops here.”  Ditto for the Republicans who want to keep us safe from gay marriage and having abortions, who are so-o-o-o-o moral they can’t admit to any wrongdoing.  After all, Foley left (when he was found out).  That’s supposed to do it.

So vote for a Democrat this time around, or Hastert will still be there protecting us and investigating his staff, and tell your friends to vote Democratic.  Sure, the Democrats are wimps and they may not be so well organized, and they will become greedy soon enough, but for a while we’ll have some balance.
