Worst October Suprise EVER
Worst October Suprise EVER.
By Patrick Godfrey
(As read on the Rush Limbaugh Show)
It had all the earmarks of a classic Democrat Party plan to depress Republican turnout. Take a barely disguised homosexual Republican Congressman, add salacious electronic messages that included masturbation, sex and other lurid details, push it to their eager and willing accomplices in the Main Stream Media (MSM) right before an election and as quick as you can say LBJ an instant scandal is created.
The only problem it seems, is that in today’s world of media, with data available to the whole world that was heretofore available only to a select few, the plan didn’t work out quite the way they had expected. An enterprising blogger has done some elemental detective work and discovered that the entire incident is nearly exactly the opposite of what was first reported.
Rather than a case of a pedophile Congressman stalking young men in the corridors of power, it instead turns out to be a case of a closeted homosexual nurturing a relationship with a young man, and making sexual advances once he became an adult. A relationship by the way that the young man, if he felt threatened or chose not to continue, could have ended at any time.
An older homosexual man seeking a relationship with a young man? Who would have thought?
Rather than the Pedophile Politician script we were first being fed, we now know that the real story is far less than we have been lead to believe.
As it turns out, although the young man in question was indeed a Page, was indeed befriended by Congressman Foley and did have sexual discussions with him; it seems everything was perfectly legal. As a signatory of a Bill outlawing Internet sex between adults and minors, Foley was perfectly aware of the legal boundaries and seems to have taken great care to not cross that fine line until the young man became a legal adult.
All I can remember is the Democrats mantra. That the troglodyte Republicans were obsessed by sex between consenting adults. That homosexuals in close working relationships with young people, especially young men, is a good and healthy thing. That some forms of sex, aren’t sex. That what two consenting adults do or say behind closed doors is their business. That intercepting and reading electronic communications between anyone in the
And most of all; never be judgmental.
So in the end, what do we end up with?
- A pedophile that wasn’t.
- A child that was actually an adult.
- The disclosure of personal electronic communications of a highly personal nature between two consenting adults revealed.
- A sex scandal between a couple who never had sex.
- That Democrat Congressmen can have sex with 17 year olds and get re-elected, but Republicans that talk about sex are forced to resign.
- ABC news is made to look like a fool, hyping a story beyond the facts at hand.
That the facts at hand were, yet again, revealed by an anonymous Blogger Rather (pardon the pun) than the “professional fact checkers” that the MSM routinely crows about is the death knell to the Democrats traditional scripts. Along with the infamous Texas Air National Guard documents of 2004, this latest attempt by the Democrats is not going according to plan, and I suspect it will have the same result at the Polls in November. It is, without a doubt, the worst October Surprise, EVER.
