We swear we’re not making this up. Conservative radio host and blogger Matt Drudge on the teenage pages whom Foley corresponded with: “You’re not going to tell me these are innocent babies…. These kids were playing Foley for everything he was worth.” This is not satire. This is the voice of today’s GOP.
You could say “well Drudge, it’s abuse of power, a congressman abusing these impressionable, young 17 year-old beasts, talking about their sex lives with a grown man, on the internet.” Because you have to remember, those of us who have seen some of the transcripts of these nasty instant messages. This was two ways, ladies and gentlemen. These kids were playing Foley for everything he was worth. Oh yeah. Oh, I haven’t…they were talking about how many times they’d masturbated, how many times they’d done it with their girlfriends this weekend…all these things and these “innocent children.” And this “poor” congressman sitting there typing, “oh am I going to get any,” you know?
