A friend of mine's mother is a wonderfully gift writer. She has often written just the right thing in just the right way. I am jealous of people who are very articulate and at the same time am fortunate to have a blog where I can put their words out there for all you to read.
Here is an email from this mighty fine woman who sums up the Mark Foley scandal and how many Republicans are responding to it. She sent it to her kids. I am copying and pasting the email verbatim.
It's just too good. The anti-sex Republicans are bringing themselves down over the obscenity of one of their members. Not the obscenity of allowing the US to torture, not the obscenity of thousands of Iraqis killed every week, not the obscenity of wire-tapping without a warrant, not the obscenity of a war with no purpose or end, not the obscenity of lying, lying, lying.
No, it's sex that gets the Republicans juices going every time and it's sex that will bring them down. Don't tell me there isn't some sort of divine retribution, if not divine, then just perfect:
"For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again." (Matthew 7:2)
Have a great day.
