'At least liberals are finally exhibiting a moral compass about something'...

Ann Coulter - Who knew Congressman Foley was a closeted Democrat?Gotta love Ann. Really. Think what you want about her choice of words, but she's damn near always right. Who knew Congressman Foley was a closeted Democrat?
... Hmmmm, let's search the memory bank. In July 2000, the New York Times "ethicist" Randy Cohen advised a reader that pulling her son out of the Cub Scouts because they exclude gay scoutmasters was "the ethical thing to do." The "ethicist" explained: "Just as one is honor bound to quit an organization that excludes African-Americans, so you should withdraw from scouting as long as it rejects homosexuals."

We need to get a rulebook from the Democrats:

  • Boy Scouts: As gay as you want to be.

  • Priests: No gays!

  • Democratic politicians: Proud gay Americans.

  • Republican politicians: Presumed guilty.

  • White House press corps: No gays, unless they hate Bush.

  • Active-duty U.S. military: As gay as possible.

  • Men who date Liza Minelli: Do I have to draw you a picture, Miss Thing?

    This is the very definition of political opportunism. If Republicans had decided to spy on Foley for sending overly friendly e-mails to pages, Democrats would have been screaming about a Republican witch-hunt against gays. But if they don't, they're enabling a sexual predator.

    Talk to us Monday. Either we'll be furious that Republicans violated the man's civil rights, or we'll be furious that they didn't.
  • Thanks to Mary Katherine Ham for the tips to both the cartoon (isn't that a great one!) and Ann's column. I actually hadn't read the column until I hit MKH's post... a good one on the Foley events from today BTW. Much more here too.
