No Condit on here. They also don't mention Chappaquiddick with "respect" to Kennedy.

These things never happened and never shall be discussed again (overheard in MSM newsrooms).

Hey, I was just going to post this!!! Any chance that this stuff will become the next talking points of the MSM that pulled Sally Hemmings out of the air to save Bill?

Something has to be done about the media. I am tired of hearing about their rights, they have the responsibility to report honestly and fairly, and highlighting the SocialistCrats hypocracy would be a part of that.

We can't control what the media writes, but it would be nice to see a Republican official fire back with some of this next time a reporter asks them about Republican cover-ups.

WHY were Foley's "Over-Friendly" E-mails sent YEARS AFTER the sex-filled Instant Messages??? It makes NO sense.

I thought killing someone was the ultimate scandal. Need to include that with fata*s Kennedy.

Clinton is a serial rapist who got oral sex while deploying troops by phone and Monica did not have appropriate security clearance. He bought off her testimony with high dollar job offers from his friends. He lied under oath. He got others to lie under oath.

Der Schlickmeister is the King Cat Daddy of DemoRat sex scandals.

No Condit (alleged) murder of a government employee working for him.

No Kennedy + (CT Senator) Dodd (? - check me) three-way with a waitress on government time and on government property.

No Kennedy Chappaquiddick, true.

John F. Kennedy (D, Mass) + Marilyn Monroe + Robert Kennedy (D, Mass) Attorney General + mob connections.

No Lyndon Johnson (D, TX) + various mistresses

For the White House, there is JF Kennedy sharing a mistress with the Mafia and more, a regular male slut; Johnson and his Doris the plagiarizer; Clinton chasing after interns.

Now do a list for the White House.

If you mean do a list for the Bush White House to use in talking points, I won't bother. They'll never bring this up. It might offend a Democrat. And we can't have that, you know. That would be mean-spirited.

If you mean a list of sex scandals involving previous occupants, here goes:

2. JFK- Marilyn Monroe, et al.

1. Bill Clinton. Two words: bl0w j0b.

Best to remind everyone that it is not enough to simply go vote. You must determine the vulnerable districts, even if they are not your own, and find ways to contribute there -- either with money or volunteer time or both.

Defiant voting is not enough this year. We have to work the phones.

There were other dead women who did JFK...

"On 12th October, 1964, Mary Pinchot Meyer was shot dead as she walked along the Chesapeake and Ohio towpath in Georgetown. Henry Wiggins, a car mechanic, was working on a vehicle on Canal Road, when he heard a woman shout out: "Someone help me, someone help me". He then heard two gunshots. Wiggins ran to the edge of the wall overlooking the tow path. He later told police he saw "a black man in a light jacket, dark slacks, and a dark cap standing over the body of a white woman."

#3 and #2 are directly related to this case. There was no corresponding outrage on the Democrat side--and hardly any in the media. Both creeps ended up getting of scott-free.

This list needs to be spread around FAR AND WIDE.

Yes, I heard Wilber Mills give an accounting, himself personally, about his mis-adventures. It was hilarious.

The worst, he said, was appearing on the stage, love-sick and completely drunk out of his mind.

Drunk is no way to go through life -- especially if you are head of the House Ways and Means Committee.

FDR, JFK, LBJ and WJC were notorious womanizers. Although Jimmy Carter was a totally inept President, at least he was an honorable man when it came to upholding his wedding vows.

It goes to show that this is nothing but mock outrage. The Democrats don't care about sex scandals. Even with young aides.

EVEN if they think something criminal happened in this case (which is not clear), SOME Democrats sat on this information about Foley until they could spring it as an October Surprise.

The Democrats are using the teenage pages as pawns. If they get abused by politicos, "so what". They will keep it hush until it serves THEIR needs.

3. Former Rep. Gerry Studds. He was censured for sexual relationship with underage male page in 1983. Massachusetts voters returned him to office for six more terms.

2. Former Rep. Mel Reynolds. The Illinois Democrat was convicted of 12 counts of sexual assault with a 16-year-old. President Bill Clinton pardoned him before leaving office.


Worth repeating. And repeating. And repeating.

Indeed, in the cases of Studds and Franks, it was an opportunity for the dirtbags in their community to rally around them--and re-elect them again and again.

Have to question how moral it is to do an interview WITH Playboy. It is outreach but it also encourages some people to pick it up "for the articles".

Great point. Not only did the media do their best to cover for Clinton's crimes, they intentionally sought out historians to marginalize Clinton's actions by comparing them to other Presidential "scandals". From Jefferson to FDR and even Ike...the media tried to innoculate Clinton from criticizm by claiming this was nothing new. These pigs smeared other presidents in their attempts to save Clinton.

Is it still incest if she's a "distant" cousin? Does that count as a sex scandal?

Or only in Jerry Lee Lewis' case?

We were discussing Gerry Studds while watching the MA Gubernatorial Debate and there seems to be some confusion about what happened to Studds. Some of us are remember that the Republicans wrote up the charge of Censure for Studds and the Democrats would not participate.

"HY were Foley's "Over-Friendly" E-mails sent YEARS AFTER the sex-filled Instant Messages??? It makes NO sense"

Here is a scenario.

Maybe the sex-filled IM's were from a sting operation years ago and since Foley never acted on them they were kept under wraps. Then when he sent an "overly friendly" e-mail to a page and was just reprimanded to never do that again, and not made to resign, the Dems decided to bring out the smoking gun IM's just before the election.

They know even if Foley had never done a thing to act on any of these IM's the repercussions will be horrendous for the Republicans.

This whole feigned righteous indignation on the part of the Dems and the media probably only plays with their leftist base. It should have the effect of further emboldening the GOP base to get out and drive a stake through the Democrats' heart in November.

Show me a man in this country that has not at one time or another in his life. I am not condoning him doing the interview. It was stupid, like almost all of the things that man did and continues to this day.

My only point was that at least he did not act on it.
