I gotta tell you this whole Foley situation is really amusing. Liberals are going apesacrappin' over it. But now, the same Democrats who are incensed that Bush's National Security Agency was listening in on al-Qaida phone calls are incensed that Republicans were not reading a gay congressman's instant messages.
The Democrats say the Republicans should have done all the things Democrats won't let us do to al-Qaida — solely because Foley was rumored to be gay. Maybe we could get Democrats to support the NSA wiretapping program if we tell them the terrorists are gay!
I think it's time to get a rulebook from those silly Democrats.
—Boy Scouts: As gay as you want to be.
—Priests: No gays!
—Democratic politicians: Proud gay Americans.
—Republican politicians: Presumed guilty.
—White House press corps: No gays, unless they hate Bush.
— Active-duty U.S. military: As gay as possible.
— Men who date Liza Minelli: Do I have to draw you a picture, Miss Thing?
This is the very definition of political opportunism. If Republicans had decided to spy on Foley for sending overly friendly e-mails to pages, Democrats would have been screaming about a Republican witch-hunt against gays. But if they don't, they're enabling a sexual predator.
Amusing amusing amusing.
