I'm Soooooo Trying Not To Laugh

As the dumbass GOP party leaders throw each other under the proverbial bus. seriously, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know this Congressional page scandal is bad news. For everyone. Hell, if you're one of the good guys who has never done anything remotely wrong and you have an "R" behind your name, you look like you're keeping company with the scummiest dickheads on the planet. The very fact they didn't report this to all of the page committee members (3 in all), and reported it to the head of fundraising and the House Speaker (a/k/a "Mr. Big") proves they weren't concerened with the welfare of these kids but only with containing the political fallout.

Here's my take on it:

1. We'll see no less than three resignations other than Mr. Ped himself.

2. The gay bashing thing will come back with some serious force as a way to divert attention away from the fact they covered it up. FOR A LONG TIME.

3. The Democrats will retake the House. And then some.

4. The cover-up is far worse than the offense. We'll see one indictment if the state governments are allowed to do anything and the feds don't just sweep it under the rug.

5. Tom DeLay will have his hand in this somewhere.

6. Foley was being blackmailed to give more money to the RNC, etc. and to vote however they wanted him to.

7. A huge blackmail schee will be revealed. There are more victims and more perps and chances are- everyone on the Hill knows who they are but so long as they don't get busted and pay their checks to the Party and vote the way the powers that be want- they're safe.

8. Alcoholism is the new black. It doesn't matter what crime you commit, rehab is your get out of jail free card.

9. The Press will stop being a bunch of pussies. For about 5 minutes.

10. The religious right will try to pull it together, but will fail. The GOP will officially lose it's Christian Conservative base.

11. Tony Snow will put his foot in his mouth at least twice more.

12. Bush will dump Rummy in an effort to change the story. Or an effort to slide it in under radar.

13. The victims will be blamed and threatened.

14. The parens of the victims will be pissed and stop writing checks to the party that essentially prostituted their children.

15. Late night TV will be fun for a long time to come. Go Leno! Go Conan! Go Letterman!

Anyhow, that's just off the top of my head. More later.

On Larry King last night there was a GOP flack blaming the whole thing on the Democrats, because, he said, they created the page program in the first place and now it was up to the Republicans to clean up their mess and shut the whole program down once and for all. Then he said -- in an effort to show how even-handed and fair his criticisms were -- "there's enough blame to go around."

Makes you want to do an Elvis on your TV set.
