Shady's Back...Tell a Friend!

Here's a Winner...

I'm not gonna beat a dead horse. I'm days behind on this one and most of you already know the story...but have you read the Instant Messages? Beware, that link is sorta NSFW. The interesting news is that he checked himself into rehab for alcoholism today. I know lots of guys who do stupid things when they are drunk (like I have one friend who thinks he knows Kung Fu...he doesn't), but I haven't met anyone who gets drunk and suddenly decides to send sexually explicit instant messages/e-mails to underaged boys. In the words of my Kung Fu loving friend "Everybody has their vice." Too bad for Mark Foley that his vice is a few years shy of legal. To Mark Foley...and his truly Tara-ble idea.

Even Tara isn't as bad as Mark Foley. That man is a truly repulsive predator.

Not to make light of a terrible situation, but at least Monica was legal.

Ok, I hadn't read the whole transcript before. Ick. But that said, I am going to vent for a second.

Everytime one of these things comes up (no pun intended)and it is a creepy old guy coming onto another guy, it serves to further demonize homosexuality in the eyes of so many irrational people. If he is gay, he is expressing it in such a twisted way because his version of society won't let him be openly gay. But that doesn't change the fact that he is instinctively attracted to men. So he made really poor choices.

What scares me about this whole thing is that, while I absolutely am psyched that this is happening now to a Republican, it is also happening as many of the state Marriage Amendment initiatives are going to the general ballot. Because I have lost all trust in the rationality of the American public (Bush was REELECTED for pete's sake) I worry that they are not going to turn the repulsion of this situation onto the people who covered it up, but to those who are openly gay, who are in stable relationships or at least content in their lives, and who are fighting discrimination being written into the contsitution of many states.

Damn you Mark Foley. And don't blame it on the GD booze.

So glad to see that other people noticed the fact that he is pointing fingers at alcohol and priests to explain the fact that he is a) gay, and b) a child predator. Sadly, there are probably even more people out there who now think that if you are gay, you will become a child molester than ever before. I am so sick of people using excuses and trips to rehab to explain their deplorable actions.
