First, did you know that the Demonrats are just as guilty -- no, a kajillionty-and-one times more guilty -- as Mark Foley and his Republican bosses in allowing Foley's page-stalking go unpunished and unnoticed? It's true!
Well, okay, if not perfectly true, it's truthy, right? Sure.
Nope. No matter how you keep squinting at this torrent of bullshit, it just doesn't square. It's a given that Foley's higher-ups in his own party knew goddamned well what was going on, and not only did nothing, but cock-blocked Foley's Senate aspirations in the process. They had him right where they wanted him; he had a very secure seat (too easy), was an excellent fundraiser, and was good about spreading his campaign surpluses around and kicking upstairs to the capos. Plenty of political machinations taking place already, before a single member of the opposition party even has an inkling of Foley's mal-fee-ance.
Why do you think that is, Cock-Headed Man-Whore? Or are you just too "uncurious" to find out that part of the story -- which, let's face it, is the heart of the matter. If Scoutmaster Kolbe and Rerun Hastert had acted on what they knew -- well before 2005, it appears -- it wouldn't have gotten to this in the first place.
As it stands, I've said it before and I'll say it again: I hope it's true that they knew and fudged the timing just enough to affect the election. I'm sick of playing by Marquess of Queensberry rules while these fuckers re-invent the notion of dirty fighting.
But that's all beside the point. The real point -- which is why Gannon™ ignores it -- is that there is no way any Democratic staffer or member of Congress could have known definitively about Foley's page problem before Foley's fellow Republicans knew. There just isn't, and anyone who can't understand that is either an idiot or a fucking liar. I'm not sure which one Gannon™ is, but I suspect a bit of both.
Guckert's second bit of dullard nonsense is much more pernicious, yet much easier to counter. Here he takes Lara Logan to task for not being enough of a cheerleader.
It gets worse. Apparently Logan -- who has spent the better part of the last several years in Iraq and Afghanistan, mind you -- is just not deferential enough to Gen. Abizaid's perfunctory semantic games.
Let's cut right to the chase, motherguckert -- if you have a problem with how the "Old Media" is portraying your little bloodbath, then put on your journamalist costume, and get your fucking ass over there and start spreading the truth to us dupes. (If Gannon™ has taken his investimagative prowess to the field to give us the truth, I can find no record whatsoever of it.) Otherwise, you have no right to bitch about the supposed biases of the rest of the media. Logan has been over there literally risking her life, while you sit and lie about her like a punk. It's hard to imagine a more gutless, mealy-mouthed, chickenshit view of the world.
