Sex Scandal Stalls Bush’s Anti-Terror Talk

The Mark Foley imbroglio is drowning out Bush’s cut-and-run rhetoric and even Bob Woodward’s revelations, say many analysts.
Again, we think this is a completely unsatisfactory way for the Democrats to win in November, but que sera, sera.

    Hastert on CNN

    Hastert on Foley Warnings: ‘I Don’t Remember…’

    Foley on Predator ‘Sickos’

    “If I were one of these sickos, I’d be nervous….” That’s what former Rep. Mark Foley said about sexual predators during a 2005 taping of “America’s Most Wanted.”

    Israeli Girls Write Messages on Lebanon-Bound Shells

    A nauseating sign of the times:
