Ode To GOP Hypocrisy (Updated)

The House GOP leadership seems to be in a bit of trouble for covering up Mark Foley’s predatory Net communications.  So I dedicate my Ode To GOP Hypocrisy to House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert and Majority Leader John Boehner:

Ode To GOP Hypocrisy
By Madeleine Begun Kane

When accusations first arose
V. Foley in the House.
The GOP top leadership
Was quiet as a mouse.

Had Foley been a Democrat
Accused of heinous acts,
Those fellows would have  trumpeted
Their “values” to the max.

The scandal keeps getting worse.  Did the GOP know about Foley way back in 2001? It sure looks that way.

    When I served in the Texas House of Representatives with Tom DeLay, he was known as ‘Hot Tub’ Tom from the parties he and his roommate held at their apartment in Austin. The Foley scandal makes me wonder if Tom and his roomy’s public fawning over the FEMALE pages wasn’t a cover for what was really going on in that hot tub. I never was sure ‘which side of the street’ DeLay’s roommate, another Republican State Rep, walked on.
