On Purpose?

It's weird that Woodward has credibility in his criticisms since he once absurdly praised this lot.

Was that part of some plan?

enough already

with the Foley crap. Is this important? No. It's unworthy of most of the bloggers spending thousands and thousands of words on it. Yes, OF COURSE, those who are the most sanctimonious about sexuality are hypocrites. Tell me something I didn't know.

It makes me depressed to see these intelligent progressive waste hours and words on something that is, by its nature, trivial. Yes, yes. It's bad for old men to chase underage boys (or girls) and it's even worse when they use their power and position to do so. Of course, its effects are not trivial since politically damaging the Republicans is obviously critical at the current time. And, yet. It looks stupid to generate that much moral outrage over some sexual hypocrisy and deceit when you have just finished channeling outrage about torture and the loss of basic civil rights and the unnecessary deaths of tens of thousands of innocent people. Political strategizing on this idiotic sex scandal is a good thing if you are looking at the main chance--but don't go on and on about it with a tone of high dudgeon and outrage. It trivializes other issues, wastes time and never works for the left anyway.
