A Few Words About Bill Clinton
...And Monica and all:

"It's vile...It's more sad than anything else, to see someone with such potential throw it all down the drain because of a sexual addiction."

-- Rep. Mark Foley, R-West Palm Beach

"More sad than anything else" is that we're getting too used to hypocrites like Foley.

How many times Amy in the course of human history does this type of irony have to play out? I fear human beings are too quick to truat "icons" meaning men in suits or people standing in front of podiums or pulpits saying "trust me." Money does not equal morality nor does power equal piety.

Keep up the good work lady!

Amy, my love, did you see this? Here's Foley saying "If I were one of these sickos (referring to online predators), I'd be nervous with America's Most Wanted on my trail."

How he must love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning.

This is an old story, just a different face. J. Edgar Hoover and Roy Cohn were both agressive homophobes in public life.

J. Edgar Hoover was too ugly! Please tell me he wasn't a homo!

Sorry, Lena, it seems he was, though there's no real concrete evidence, excepting some photos of him in drag (Eww, that face in drag, can you imagine?) that came out after his death. His longtime "friend" Clyde Tolson, whom he regularly dined and vacationed with, inherited his estate and got the flag at his funeral (thanks, Wikipedia), which certainly suggests something...
