Foley

Foley's lawyer said that all the IM's were sent when he was drunk.

At least one of them was sent during a vote on funding for the Iraq war. Maybe he forgot about that one.

Its amazing how the American media works. We have lost fifteen more American service people over the last couple days, and what is getting attention? Its just another sex scandal. And it wasn't even real sex.

Florida Republican Rep. Mark Foley's instant message records indicate he is a dude who gets off on fantasy cyber sex with teenaged boys. I believe this is the first virtual sex scandal in Washington DC political history.

Back here in the real world, American men and women are killed, maimed and scarred, both physically and emotionally every day. War is hell. Finally, the mainstream media is beginning to support our troops by speaking the truth about their sacrifices. more

I read something that explained why this story has such legs that I lost the link to.

Basically it's that it's just such a simple story. That simplicity makes the repbulican efforts at misdirection very obvious, obvious in ways that doesn't happen when they try to misdirect stories about Iraq.

In Iraq stories the silly sound bits like "fight them over there instead of over here" works for people who aren't really paying attention every day. So the stories quickly become uninteresting to viewers/readers.
