GOP Unhinged

"..having the Republican leadership bolting to the Rush Limbaugh show is actually pretty good.. the mark (er, guest) comes out with.. nutcase statements that then get broadcast around the country..[like bygotry or].. blaming those.. high school children for being so damn attractive [priceless analisys By Hunter at DailyKos -- law]


Dennis Hastert, of course, has many theories on why he, his staff, Tom Reynolds, his staff, and a host of other Republicans took absolutely no action when they each heard multiple times, over the course of a year, about Foley's behavior. Hastert's primary theory is that it was the fault of the young victims, Bill Clinton, Democrats, and The Gays; however, he's apparently now modified it to also blame Jewish investment bankers, a move sure to ring true to his more Klan-supporting base members, but which left the entire rest of the media and political establishments shaking their heads (or trying to suppress laughter.) He's also asserted that Foley's victims are against the war on terrorism, which is pretty much the exact moment, for future reference, when Hastert jumped the shark, becoming mere cartoon-like parody of himself.

As an aside, I'm beginning to realize that having the Republican leadership bolting to the Rush Limbaugh show or (when they need to slum it down a bit) Hugh Hewitt is actually finally becoming a pretty good thing, for Democrats. Rush makes them comfortable, and the mark (er, guest) comes out with right-wing, nutcase statements that then get broadcast around the country, by the press, to audiences distinctly less inclined to hear their leaders acting like race-baiters, or imbeciles, or blaming those soft, supple high school children for being so damn attractive and sexually arousing.
