After all, according to Limbaugh, "there's not even any real problem with what Foley did, as we've discussed. In their [Democrats'] hearts and minds and their crotches, they don't have any problem with what Foley did. They've defended it over the -- over the years." My God, Limbaugh has his head so far in the dark that he can't even defend Foley from being caught as a gay predator without calling gay those who stopped the predator.
To drive home his claim that liberals and fundamentalist Muslims are alike in their reactions, Limbaugh said "The release of all this was not to save the children. It was not to take a predator off the streets. This was a strategic move to help the Democrats. They could have known it before the Republicans. It would appear so." Of course, Limbaugh didn't find fault with any of the Republican leadership who have apparently known about Foley for years. Limbaugh blamed the slow release of the emails on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-CA. Somehow you just knew either a Democrat or a woman (or both) was responsible. Anybody, that is, other than a good Republican man like Foley.
For someone claiming that the Democrats don't care anything about children, Limbaugh seems in a rush to posture for the right position on protecting Foley. Limbaugh is the one who seems more concerned about the elections than the ordeal a teenager endured at the hands of a predator allowed to roam at will in the hallowed halls of Congress. Instead of saying that this is a serious issue which overrides partisan politics, Limbaugh has rushed to make the situation as partisan as possible, even if it means covering the back of a predator.
Limbaugh sounds ever so familiar. How many times have I heard lines similar to his. "I am not trying to make any excuses but . . ." is usually how it has started out all the times that I have heard cornered pedophiles and their enablers try to defend their crimes. "Yes, it might be true that I had relationships with the little girl but she was provoking me." "Yes, I know that I shouldn't have had sex with that four year old boy but I had too much to drink and smoke." "Yes, Foley might have been trying to have sex with underage boys but the Democrats were trying to trap him so they could win the elections. Besides, Democrats are all gay themselves. So why are they complaining about Foley?"
