Congressman Foley Resigns For Some Reason

-- by John Emerson

Say what you will about Foley, he was the Congressman most dedicated to protecting children. I'm concerned about the possibility that during the period while his replacement is being selected and trained, children will not be adequately protected. Someone ought to bring this problem up with Speaker Hastert, to make sure that he replaces Foley with someone equally dedicated to child-protection.

And keep asking him, and asking him, until we get a straight answer. We need to be sure that the children are being protected.

Update:I have posted this comment on several comment threads, and a lot of people take it seriously and get mad. I don't blame them; Republican trolls are impossible to parody, because it's impossible to write something stupider than what they really think.

Republicans were aghast at Clinton's behavior, with many saying it showed he had lied and abused his power.

"It's vile," said Rep. Mark Foley, R-West Palm Beach. "It's more sad than anything else, to see someone with such potential throw it all down the drain because of a sexual addiction."
