It's become more and more obvious that Republican apologists are going to be able to get away with blaming the upcoming "stunning" defeat on the Foley "scandal," rather than the fact that large chunks of its base and other normally dependable voters are going to stay home in disgust over the several years of:
Wild-eyed pork, earmarks, and increasing government size and power.
intentions to put Gonzales and Miers on the Supreme Court.
Failure to engage the strongest enemies of the US, in particular Iran.
Horrible mismanagement of the Iraq occupation.
Passing and signing the Campaign Finance Reform act.
The new trillion dollar entitlement program for Prescription Drugs.
The gigantic Katrina rathole.
The education bill.
Reneging on structural party promises about smaller, less intrusive government.
Accomodation of Kofi Annan and the biggest financial scandal in history.
An absolute failure to grapple with illegal immigration and open borders, with only the policy of amnesty and and increase of tens of millions of "legal" immigrants over the next two decades offered as a "solution."
Unarmed airline pilots.
Agreeing to sign the Assault Weapons Bill.
Needlessly intrusive "security" at airports.
A refusal to sensibly profile for terrorists.
The Ports Dubai fiasco in which critical parts of American ports are still owned by a foreign Islamic nation.
Making a general botch of our and Israel's efforts in the middle east.
A policy that will permit the world's most dangerous nations to threaten us with the world's most dangerous weapons.
Far too close and suspicious relationship between the families of our President and the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia, which has led to dangerous security breaches like permitting the huge Saudi private "charity' network to continue to function in the US and fund Wahabbi mosques and schools where hatred of America forms the heart of the curriculum, and allowed free passage of 15,000 Saudi "students" into our colleges and universities.
A general and comprehensive betrayal of just about every fundamental precept espoused by the Republican Party over the past fifty years.
Islam, the Religion of Peace (tm).
No, of course, none of that has anything with my decision to refuse to vote for any Republicans this fall. It must that terrible Foley scandal.
Sure. And for that, if nothing else, I despise this Democrat organized and planned "October Surprise." Because it will give the Republicans yet another excuse to avoid blaming their own egregious failures (among which I most emphatically do not include Congressman Foley) for their upcoming loss of both the House and the Senate.

Someone else in search of the mythical "real conservative".
Poetic justice: Billy Quick gets his a$$ Wacoized by President Hillary Rodham's Department of Injustice.
At this point I will vote Republican if for no other reason than they whisper sweet nothings in my ear while they are doing their business. The Dems can't even do that.
When has an election ever NOT been the lesser of two evils?
I vote for the person I think will screw me less.
I ran for class president in high school. The other guy was an alright guy too. :)
That's what you think...did you know that some say he cheated on his math test, chewed gum in class, peeked at the underwear ads in the Sears catalog (men AND women's ads?), tried fizzies along with fireballs, picked his nose...
and people might be talking about you too. :-)
