Foley is a scumbag... (updated)

STACLU - Mark Foley Flashback: If I Were One Of Those Sickos... and a predator. Read these horrific IM's.

Having said that, the timing of this is more than a little suspicious. Be prepared for more from the Left as we approach mid-terms. They'll stop at nothing to regain power.

Much, much more is coming out about this... the right side of the blogosphere is on it big time. Who knew what and when...

Foley is indeed a scumbag, but the timing is all politics... and it's getting ugly.

HotAir - Did Hastert know last year that Foley was a pervert?Update: The Democratic Playbook
1. Pay no heed to the distinction between the e-mails and IMs. There's no evidence (yet) that any Republican leaders knew about Foley's cybersex IMs. There's plenty of evidence that they knew how uncomfortable the "overly friendly" e-mails made at least one page. So the Dems will press the GOP on what they knew about the former and will constantly, in their press releases, refer to the "GOP's knowledge of the sexually explicit e-mails."

2. Enlarge the wedge between House leaders. The tension this weekend between Speaker Dennis Hastert and NRCC chair Tom Reynolds was thick. Dems want it to suffocate the party and throw the Republicans even further off their game.

3. Be aggressive about how Dems will - and are - protecting children. Dems want to keep the issue poisonous in a way that's clear and direct to middle America. (In other words: this ain't earmarks.)

4. Choose unimpeachable spokespeople to be their public face. The DCCC has enlisted Patty Wetterling, its candidate for MN 06, to call for "a thorough investigation" of the House leadership over Foley. Wetterling's son, Jacob, was kidnapped in 1989.

5. Deride the Republicans for incompetence. How can you possibly trust them with national security if you can't trust them with your own children?
Read the rest here. Game on.

Update #2: Not directly related to Foley (as far as we know at this point), but George Soros wants to rule America.
Soros "has assembled an army of radical allies who have long been at war with the American system, and he has done so because, notwithstanding his financial eminence, he is an outsider and a radical himself." The Shadow Party "is not an American-style party, but is more like a Lenin-style party, fully as conspiratorial and just as unaccountable." It is "the party of rebels, but also the party of rulers — a corporate unity of capital and labor. And it has insinuated itself into the heart of the American system."
Gut-check time.

Vent 10-3-06Update #3: The Left has it's own pedophile problem
Democrats trying to make political hay out of the resignation of Florida Republican Congressman Tom Foley should take a good look at their own party.
Billy Jeff's last minute pardon of a guy who had sex with a 16 year-old staffer?
Ok... who cares. It shouldn't be political.

Once again, the Blogosphere and Internet news magazines doing what the MSM won't do. That said, let's just all be glad that Foley is gone. He's a disgusting pervert that should never have been in a leadership position to begin with. Shouldn't it be less important that the Republicans will likely lose that seat than the fact that a child predator has been removed?

The Dems are going to carry this ball all the way to the bank though. Is America smart enough to see the overplay?

Video of MM and KP on O'R. Hyper-partisan sniping.

If Hastert knew Foley was a pervert that had a thing for underage staffers, he should go.
