"with IQâ€™s smaller than their penis"
I assume you meant this to be sardonic irony, right?
A backhanded comment regarding Foley, perhaps?
Or is this really indignation and defensiveness on behalf of a pedophile? (I won't emphasize 'homosexual' before pedophile b/c I really don't care, but I suspect that you do).
The MOST damning of all statements was contained in Rep Smirkus' response:
"Nevertheless, we ordered Congressman Foley to cease all contact with this former House Page to avoid even the appearance of impropriety. We also advised him to be especially mindful of his conduct with respect to current and former House Pages, and he assured us he would do so."
It seems more than a bit odd that a concerned mentor would be "ordered" to "cease all contact" if he was doing the Lord's work and Rep. Smirkus found nothing wrong or fishy.
You see, in his haste to make denials, he made an admission. That's what trips up 99.9% of all criminal defendants to talk to the police. That's a genuine admission that he found the contact and conduct by Rep. Foley unacceptable (to what degree Smirkus knew is between him and God, and he can ask forgiveness from Him). There is no other conclusion that supports that statement (and yes, an admission against interest is evidence: its an excpetion to the hearsay rule... look it up). No jumping to conclusions about it.
Mr. Moran, I would deep-6 Rep. Foley to the Libby/Abramoff/Burns/Ney/Brownie/Cunningham/The Hammer et. al. crowd of pretender/opportunist-Repubs, and focus on issues pressing the country that the big "R's" have the answers to. Defending a pedophile is unbecoming and lowers yourself to the above-listed crowd's level.
Are you implying that I'm defending Foley? If I were you I would attend a remedial reading course as soon as possible. It is evident that the information enters your brain and dribbles out your ears before you can assimilate its meaning.
The "admission" (if you knew anything about the Hill) is that after the last page scandal, any contact outside of normal Congressional business was considered "inappropriate." Hence, the Shimkus statement reflects his concerns in that regard.Comment Posted By sour grapes On 30.09.2006 @ 22:07
