For those following current events, you might have heard that representive Mark Foley resigned his spot in Congress due to some sexually explicit e-mails to underage interns.
There's a lot of finger pointing nowadays about who knew what and when, blah, blah, blah. The usual stuff you'd expect from Congress. Frankly, I think anyone who'd cover up such dispicable things are as criminal as Mr. Foley himself, but the investigations are ongoing and I'm sure we'll be learning a lot more information over the days and weeks to come.
But you know--none of this surprises me. Scandals in Congress? Not like it hasn't happened before. Granted, even Clinton at least wasn't trying to fool around with underage people, but there are a lot of perverts out there, and it's not exactly shocking that some of them snuck into Congress over the years.
No, the thing that surprises me is Foley admitting to being gay. He is a Republican, after all. Is it just me, or doesn't that seem a lot like a Jewish person joining the Nazis? I mean, yeah, I guess he has the right to be a Republican if he wants to, but it seems a bit hypocritical. Why? I just don't get it. *shrug*
