Hastert and His Chief of Staff Room Together

Here's an interesting couple of paragraphs from the Huffington Post:

"In Hastert's brief, evasive press conference on Thursday, sharp reporters immediately zeroed in on Palmer's role in the Foley information flow. Did Hastert leap to the defense of his chief of staff's honor in the crucial credibility contest with Kirk Fordham? Did he say I know Scott Palmer and I know he's telling the truth? No. He avoided every question with Palmer's name in it. Hastert obviously does not want to talk about Scott Palmer."

"If Fordham did warn Palmer about Foley a long time ago, what are the odds that Palmer did not tell Hastert? As close to zero as you can get. Many chiefs of staff are close, very close, to their bosses on Capitol Hill. But none are closer than Scott Palmer is to Denny Hastert. They don't just work together all day, they live together."

"There are plenty of odd couple Congressmen who have roomed together on Capitol Hill, but I have never heard of a chief of staff who rooms with his boss. It is beyond unusual. But it must have its advantages. Anything they forget to tell each other at the office, they have until bedtime to catch up on. And then there's breakfast for anything they forgot to tell each other before falling asleep. And then there's all day at the office. Hastert and Palmer are together more than any other co-workers in the Congress.""

How about that Huffington Post, huh? Of course, it could be like when J. Edgar Hoover lived with his FBI deputy. Okay, bad example. They could just be roommates, but surely, people this close must have talked about the Foley case when other people in Congress approached Hastert's chief of staff to complain about Foley's behavior with the pages. And the timeline for that keeps drifitng backward. In other words, Hastert was probably lying when he said he just found out about it Friday. So in conclusion, a vote for the Republicans is a vote for man-boy sex. Have a nice day.
Wait, one other thing: Rush Limbaugh is now saying the Iraq War was just a prank that went horribly wrong.

Huffington and implicating innuendo, hell even comedic snickering, ain't gonna cut it.

Call the police. Arrest and detain members of Congress and staff to NOW face criminal indictment and trial.

Call for arrest, handcuffs, perp walk out of Congress. Call off press conferences, they have said enough. No more talk. Arrest. Absolute. At once.

We here in the streets can sentence and punish the mass media psychos sickening our children's brains infected by TV porn-and-blood deviants and liars. Turn it off, turn away, cancel subscriptions for cable and newspapers, boycott the businesses advertising. Trap the terrorizers in the box and their black hole when you switch it OFF.

Huffing and puffing can't blow the House down. Liars lives must end for ours to begin in Liberty and Justice. No joking matter.

Real news looks like this, Washington, D.C., Wayne Madsen reporting:
October 7/8, 2006 -- The rumors about another top GOP member of the House being involved in sexual encounters with young "men for hire" are confirmed to WMR by well-placed sources in Washington's gay community. The member in question is House Speaker Dennis Hastert, whose "alternate" life style is the primary reason for him and his staff covering up the scandal involving ex-Florida GOP Rep. Mark Foley and his lewd messages sent to underage male congressional pages. Hastert's penchant to receive anal sex is well-known to our sources in DC's gay community. Additionally, Hastert's reported extremely small penis is the subject of many jokes among Washington's gay circles.

In July, Hastert was hospitalized at Bethesda Naval Hospital for cellulitis, a bacterial skin infection. In the Feb. 7, 2003 issue of AIDS Treatment News, doctors reported that they saw "a large increase in aggressive, antibiotic-resistant 'staph' (Staphylococcus aureus) skin infections in gay men in some areas -- and a separate epidemic in certain prisons. Symptoms include boils or blisters; treatment can be difficult, and sometimes requires hospitalization. One HIV doctor in Los Angeles who used to see about one case a year is now seeing two a week. In the past this infection occurred mainly in hospitals." The reports of serious skin infections among gay men was also reported in the Los Angeles Times on Jan. 27, 2003.

WMR has also learned that Republicans will soon mount an effort to discredit a senior House Democratic member with a sex scandal of a rather different nature. The member is aware of the plans and is circling the political wagons if the GOP launches their expected attack.

Comedic snickering might not cut it in your world but it pays my bills and allows me to live outside the cubicle.
I believe this scandal could be God's way of saying gay people count and God is going to use them to vanquish this corrupt self-righteous bunch of Republicans from the halls of power.
The danger is I fear they will not go quietly without a criminal attempt to rig the next elections or use the military to divert America.
Of course, a deity might not exist, but based on this week, I'm beginning to think there is a God.
Tenskwatawa, I love the "switch it off" phrase. It's a reminder that the American people still hold the power, if the emperor loses his ability to manipulate them. Someday the pages could have a statue to commemorate their role in waking up the public and saving America.
We sent them to Washington to learn about democracy and they ended up teaching it. There's your screenplay.

Bill, you are too kind and forgiving. Your statement "...they have until bedtime to catch up on. And then there's breakfast for anything they forgot to tell each other before falling asleep" leaves the unspoken question "What do they do all night?"

I know, there's nothing wrong with being gay. It is just hypocrisy that's so repugnant. But what do we know? They have a right to stay in the closet, should they need to.

Memo to 'tenskwatawa': Shorter posts might be better read.

I'm quoting from the Huffington Post for the bulk of that and including the quote you refer to. I'll check my quotation marks.

At 8:32 PM, Blogger LaurelhurstDad said...

Your quotes were correct. I was referring to your blog in general.

I am ashamed for implying that they were your words. That's something Fox 'news' would do.

Forget being ashamed and return to enjoying this story. This is classic stuff and it can only get worse/better.
I think the bumper sticker is "Vote Republican if You Support Man/Boy Sex".

I would put that bumper sticker on my car.
