Okay, it’s time that I address this ridiculous Mark Foley ordeal.
I understand that the fact that Mark Foley sent scandalous e-mails and instant messages to some pages and I understand that he is a republican. But, is it REALLY that big of a deal? I don’t understand why the fact that some republican sent some messages to a page is the reasons why Congress hasn’t been doing anything this whole time. It’s not folks. Mark Foley does not represent the actions of every single other republican in Congress. Democrats understandabely so, have used it as a platform, and to a lot of mindless Americans that don’t see the real issues with which everyone is annoyed about, will use the Foley case as their means of voting.
But really, let’s shut up about Mark Foley. Yes, let him deal with the fact that he was wrong, but we as voters can’t say, “Oh wow Mark Foley sent messages to teenagers…clearly he’s the reason October was the bloodiest month in Iraq, and the reason nothing is getting done in Congress.” I’m not saying what Foley did was right, but please don’t go vote in a few weeks based on the idea that someone sent e-mails and instant messages to another guy. Whoopy Doo. Let’s get to the real reason behind the issues. Please.
