Brent Bozell:
It is beyond easy - it is mandatory - to denounce Rep. Mark Foley for his sexually charged electronic mail and Internet messages to teenage males who worked as pages in the House of Representatives. He was right to resign. I hope he's prosecuted.

It is also beyond easy to recognize how the Democrats have decided to make national political hay out of this ugly sex scandal -- as far as we know, a sex talk scandal. On Monday morning, the network news shows were predicting excitedly that this could be a killer issue for Democrats. ...

... The hypocrisy here is as nauseating as the Foley e-mails.
Ben Shapiro:
... On what moral basis do Democrats condemn Foley? They have no basis for moral outrage, since they have championed the destruction of traditional morality for decades. Instead, they condemn Foley and the Republicans for hypocrisy. ...

... The Republican Party is the party supposedly dedicated to those antiquated value systems that made this country great. It should not have been difficult for Republicans to identify the problems with Foley's behavior: pedophilia, exploitation, and yes, homosexuality. And yet, because the Republican Party has become infected with either the unchecked will to power or the milquetoast tolerance of the social left, House Republicans did nothing. Shame on them.
Is the GOP unworthy as Joseph Farah suggests? It would sure be nice to have a third option. Hastert, Frist, McCain, Specter, Chafee, Stevens, Lott, Cochran, DeLay... not much to get excited about there. Conservatives are too-often forced to vote for the lesser of two evils, or bite the bullet.
