  Rush Limbaugh Explains (for us mere mortals) How The Democrats and the Media Set Foley Up
October 3 broadcast of The Rush Limbaugh Show:
LIMBAUGH: Nancy Pelosi knows the person who planted the story about Foley five weeks before the election. "But Rush! But Rush! But Rush! Tell us what you know! How can you be sure she knows?" Well, I can almost guarantee it. She might not know who specifically did it. But she knows where it comes from. All the liberal Democrats do. She knows the person because this -- these emails were held by a liberal, they were planted by a liberal, and they were timed to the 2006 election cycle by a liberal. And liberals know liberals, and so Pelosi knows who Deep IM is. There's a Deep IM here. Not Deep Throat, but there's a Deep IM.


Note typical Limbaugh technique - assert flatly that the Bad Guys have done or know something, then weasel.

LIMBAUGH: Folks, you don't know the Democrats like I do. Everybody is now comin' out of the closet, if you will, saying they knew Foley was gay. He's in a safe seat. Somebody knew this was going on. Go to one of the kids or go to a couple of pages and say: "Titillate the guy." "Why? Why? Why? I don't want to get in trouble." "You won't get in trouble. You'll be a hero. Nobody'll ever know it's you. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah." How do you get a kid to do this? You threaten 'em or you pay 'em. I don't know.


 You know, how do these pages get into the page program? How does this happen? One way is through political connections, political patronage. So who are these pages and who sponsored these kids to become pages and, and for, for what reason? Is there a political party that would stoop this low? Yes, there is. We know that there is a political party that would stoop this low to set somebody up this way.


This is, this is so obviously a planned, orchestrated release -- timed release of information that's designed to keep the story going. I know how these people in the drive-by media work. I know how they coordinate with the Democrat [sic] Party. They're all excited.

I love it - Rush Limbaugh referring to others as members of the "drive-by media"...

Meanwhile, Fox IZVESTIA has more than once referred to Hastert and/or Foley as Democrats...


Foley, the chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children[1], sponsored the following legislature:

H.R.5749Title: To amend title 18, United States Code, to protect youth from exploitation by adults using the Internet, and for other purposes.

Sponsor: Rep Foley, Mark [FL-16] (introduced 7/10/2006)

[1]Hey - who better qualified, right?

The pages in question were above the age of consent, and the one with the most involvement was 18. No overt contact occurred, and no crime was committed.

Unethical as hell? Absolutely. As unethical as Blubba and his cigar trick while he was on the clock? Not even close.

And then there's Barney Fwank and his 12 year old boys.

The Perversion and Double Standard Party (that would be the Dummycraps) have no business saying a word.

And while I won't charge a conspiracy, this isn't the first, or even the tenth time, that such allegations have come out just before an election.
