Friday Afternoon Schadenfreude

You can't beat the republicans when it comes to good, clean, wholesome Moral Values. Like this guy.

Republican congressman Mark Foley resigned today after it was discovered that he's been exchanging sexually-explicit instant messages with underage boys. Messages ranged from things like "Do I make you horny?" (YEAH, baby!) to some that were so down-and-dirty that they couldn't be published. In typical hypocritical republican style, Foley was "the author of key sexual predator provisions" of the child protection act. Christ, I so love it when these pompous, holier-than-thou, sanctimonious assholes are outed.

The really sweet thing is that the southern Florida district Foley respresented was (until now) a republican "safe seat" -- meaning that the democrats may be one seat closer to winning the house, thanks to Mr. Foley's indiscretions. WOOT!
