I don't believe that. I certainly have criticized plenty of "R"s..

But you can't deny the dirty Rats are usually out for blood right before an election, can you?

I think we have decent people on here, who needed more proof of explicit email other than "what do you want for your birthday"?...

So now we have it..and it is sad, sick, and a crying shame..OK?

I skimmed the first 100 post but saw no mention of Fox whose name appears in the Title....

Who the hell is Fox? If you can tell me I'd appreciate it...

I believe they are referring to fox news being the source (rather than cnn which most folks here have a major problem with regarding reliability).

Otherwise, there's no reason to save and archive for use 30 days before the '06 election (remember, these are from '03, allegedly).

I find that pretty odd, along with the time questions you raised. Reading through the IMs quickly though, I'm not sure that Foley looked to conceal his identity. And that too is odd given internet opportunities for anonymous cheap thrills.

"First, the governor calls for a special election to fill Foley's seat for the lame duck session."

Well, I'm not sure about Florida laws, but most states require 90 days before a special election can be held, from the time the governor calls for one.

I don't think there's time for all that.

I think what's actually going to happen is that the Florida GOP, or the Republican group in that district will name some sacrificial lamb to take Foley's place. Then they'll just walk away and let two years go by and run a real candidate in the next election.

Your opinion may differ.

No, the real issue is whether or not there is some popular candidate who is willing to step in to this mess. I doubt it.

Whoever had these IMs in '03 was "smart enough" NOT to release them for the '04 election (as Foley wasn't up for reelection *THAT* year), but rather knew to alert the media (just) prior to his '06 reelection (for maximum effect).

Log Cabin Republicans lobby specifically for "gay" rights. They are Republicans primarily to promote "gay" rights, not to promote the conservative agenda.

Foley shouldn't have resigned -- terrible move. They're coughing up stuff from '03 just prior to his '06 reelection bid? Why didn't they use the material just prior to the '04 election? Oh yeah, that's right, Foley wasn't up for reelection that election cycle.

You do know that Representatives of Congress are up for election every two years, don'tcha? Foley was first elected in 1994 and has been re-elected every two years since.

"Log Cabin Republicans lobby specifically for "gay" rights. They are Republicans primarily to promote "gay" rights, not to promote the conservative agenda."

I would say that is a slight distortion of the Log Cabin Republicans. Painting with a broad brush I would say Log Cabin Republicans are typcilly more fiscally conservative while obviously more liberal when it comes to social issues. Of course promoting their lifestyles is part of being a politically active gay person. Would a politically active muslim, native american, christian, asian, etc. ever argue against their own belief system? In rare cases maybe but of course you are going to try and promote things which you think will benefit you. To say there are no aspects of the conservative agenda the log cabin republicans support is a bit of a stretch. To say they do not support the conservative social agenda would be closer to the truth.

Oh, please...he shouldn't have resigned? He's a teenager-chasing creep. Of course he should have resigned. The question is not about that...the question is whether anything can be done to save this seat.

If you want to argue FOR him, then you're in the wrong place.

Ok..just got back from my cocktail with hubby...lol.
You got a point there..however..I get the impression that that XXXXXXXXX(the 'boy') knew exactly who he was talking to and Mr. Foley knew who he was talking to(or thought he did). I actually read a gay guy on one of the 'news' forums saying that it was not unusual that gay people have their first experience with older men(i know it's sick)..but he was acting like it was no big deal. We are going on a big assumption too..that what ABC reported about these PM's being from former 'pages' is true.
