It's a little different this time, Jonathan.
In an earlier piece, I took a slap at Blogging Tory "Strong Conservative" Jonathan Strong, who seems determined to play the apologist for GOP congressman Mark Foley, constantly whinging on about how the Democrats did it too, etc, etc, and making this out to be just partisan nastiness.
What Jonathan still hasn't figured out is that Foley's case is different because some of the most vicious, attack dog criticism of not just Foley but the entire GOP leadership is coming, not from all of us deranged, unhinged leftist moonbats, but from the Far Right.
Check out this piece, where long-time, right-wing loon Bay Buchanan absolutely savages the GOP leadership. Unlike Strong, Buchanan doesn't cast around for pathetic, lame-ass rationalizations to defend Foley. Unlike Strong, Buchanan finally, for once in her mostly worthless life, has a moment of profound clarity and sees the evil for what it really is. And she doesn't mince words.
Witness also the Moonie-run Washington Times, who have amazingly taken time out from being batshit-crazy, neo-con whackjobs to also have their moment of lucidity in demanding that House Speaker Denny Hastert resign.
All of that's pretty amazing stuff, isn't it, Jonathan? And what it shows is that you are so on the wrong side of history here, since even the most clinically-insane, right-wing fundamentalist nutbars have finally put a sock in their endless blathering about abortion and gay marriage and flag burning and other asinine non-topics long enough to realize that this is all about their kids, and they are seriously fucking pissed and, unlike you, Jonathan, they're not making inane rationalizations or idiotic historical comparisons. They're just plain furious, and they're looking for heads to roll.
You, on the other hand, Jonathan ... well, apparently, some things will never change. I guess being a spineless, conservative apologist hack is a hard habit to break, isn't it?
AFTERSNARK: As difficult as this is for me, I will give Mr. Strong credit that he stopped short of descending to this breathtaking level of utter depravity.
