Politics, Predators and Pedophiles…Oh My..

Today’s news shocker…another Republican unmasked for slime bucketing the American people…this time targeting boys… from the position of chairman of the House caucus on missing and exploited children!!!
Good grief! This six term Representative, Mark Foley, from the chad challenged state of Florida resigned…only after being CAUGHT “sending inappropriate emails to underage male congressional interns.”
ABC News reported Friday that Foley also engaged in a series of sexually explicit instant messages with current and former male pages. In one message, ABC said, Foley wrote to one page: “Do I make you a little horny?”
In another message, Foley wrote, “You in your boxers, too? … Well, strip down and get relaxed.”
He’s sorry of course (not before he got caught) blah blah blah…the usual pedophile whine after getting found out.
Oh yeah, we really feel bad for ya. Not.
And omigod, Florida gave him SIX terms in office to go after his particular prey!
“Foley’s name will remain on the ballot, which has already been certified,” said Susan Smith, a spokeswoman for the Florida Department of State. But Republicans have seven days to notify election officials of a replacement nominee who would take Foley’s spot if he wins, she said.
Holy Crap! These yutzes still think he can win the next election and they can use a rotten Representative to place hold in their barrel of bad apples!
“It makes it more difficult, but we can still win,” said Carl Forti, spokesman for the House Republican campaign committee. “It is a Republican district.”
AP reports that Foley was a member of the Republican leadership, serving as a deputy whip. He also was a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
(I’ll say!)
And here’s another tactic shocker…
Foley’s aides initially blamed Democratic rival Tim Mahoney and Democrats with attempting to smear the congressman before the election.
(Yeah, see how sorry he and his Republican cronies are.)
Oh, p.s.
Foley was the author of the key sexual predator provisions of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, which Bush signed in July.
Foley, who represents a district in southern Florida, was also a member of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, which oversees tax and trade policy.
Don’t any of you Republican, moral-club-wielding, freekazoids talk one second more about right anything.
Police your own selves and clean up your own dirty backyards before you continue to false moralize and pass laws or judgments on anyone or anything else.
You’re not sorry. You’re just sorry when you get caught.
What I’m writing about here, is not about bashing anyone for sexual orientation. What I am saying specifically is that abuse and exploitation of children in this country, by anyone, is growing beyond our ability to imagine and the people we elect to represent us; to enact laws to protect our children from predators, actually are the liars, self-serving predators.
We’re like the frog asking the scorpion to ferry us across the flooded river to safey…dead.  Scorpions do what they do.  No matter how much you hope they will change and be good, they sting.
Maybe I’ve got a bit of that hope within regarding that group of cartoon fodder…politicians.  But in the last six years greed and overt fascist-like grabs for control is up— and honesty and civil rights down.
Do you hear the coliseum roars of old, moments before the Roman Fall?  Listen closely…
What we continue to ignore and disavow, allows disintegration to continue at bedrock.
And here we are in WTF Florida again with another political poser…
Maybe it might be best if California lets Florida be the state to fall off the North American continent when the earth shakes.

It’s a head shaker, folks.
