Nothing new here, but the ever-Menckeneque Carl Hiaasen, easily the best thing ever produced by South Florida, tends to especially relish batting around the creeps and cretins in his own back yard. Concerning the Mark Foley scandal, he’s done it again.
This, after all, is the party that has declared itself morally superior; the party that spent $47 million of taxpayer money investigating the Clintons, ultimately impeaching the president for lying about consensual sex with an adult woman who wasn’t his wife.
How much will these pious stiffs spend to ferret out the truth about one of their own who sought out underaged boys? Will they bring back Ken Starr to track down those on Capitol Hill who knew what Foley was doing?
The young page who received that request for a photo last year thought it was sick, sick, sick, sick.
But not sick enough to concern the Republican leaders who shrugged it off. They were waiting for something sicker, and now they’ve got it.
