It is so rich, it is like eating double chocolate chocolate cake. There is only one problem. It's not as enjoyable. Because the dark stuff in this cake came from the back end of a bull, not a cocoa bean.
In an article today, published by the AP and written by Andrew Taylor, we read the following headline: "Hastert urges quick action on Foley". This after the man allegedly swept the page abuse case under the rug for, not weeks, not months, but years...according to the article:
Former House Clerk Jeff Trandahl and Rep. Jim Kolbe (news, bio, voting record), R-Ariz., learned in 2001 or 2002 of an episode in which Foley sent an ex-page inappropriate e-mails.
How's that for "Quick Action"? They've been sitting on this since '02? You go, Denny.
Not only do these people have the temerity to urge "quick action" but they also continue to allege that this is all just a plot to make them look bad before the election:
Hastert and some other Republicans have suggested revelations about the messages were timed to hurt the GOP in next month's elections.
Of course I don't believe it. If the Democrats were capable of the that kind of concerted, coordinated action, we wouldn't be in this mess. They would have timed the revelations to screw up the 2002 midterm elections.
