This one from the Investor’s Business Daily is so ham handed, it’s laughable.
It provides no evidence, and yet still accuses the Dems of orchestrating an October surprise…you know, by planning 5 years ago for Foley to start sending underage Republican pages IM messages about completely inappropriate topics and then having those same Republican pages report it to the Republican leadership only to have it ignored and then exposed by Brian Ross just a few days ago.
Wait…I can kind of see how this could have orchestrated by a party who hasn’t been able to put together a coherent war strategy. Makes perfect sense.
Scandal: Right after Mark Foley was revealed to have had inappropriate e-mail conversations with a 16-year-old page, he resigned and checked into rehab. Now, what did Democrats know, and when did they know it?
Yes, you read that right: the Democrats. It’s of course clear that Foley, a Republican representative from Florida, resigned for good cause. We don’t defend him or his inexcusable behavior — good riddance.
But it didn’t take long at all after Foley’s resignation for the Democrats to call for an investigation of the entire Republican leadership in the House, charging that GOP stalwarts knew early on that Foley, as they like to say in the rehab business, had a “problem.”
Democrats have begun losing their once-significant lead in the polls, and a mere five weeks remain until the midterm elections. Is this scandal the Democrats’ own “October Surprise,” meant to throw the GOP into a tailspin shortly before the vote?
Spin at it’s very weakest.
Oh, it hurts…
