Dem Gay-Baiting Redux

Over at The American Thinker, Clarice Feldman outlines the state of play in the Foley matter as of the end of today.

Just as the Democrats did when John Kerry so contemptibly raised Mary Cheney's sexual orientation, it seems likely that the liberals have underestimated the Christian right once again. Back in 2004, Kerry thought that informing those who didn't already know that Mary Cheney was a lesbian would drive down conservative turnout. As we all know, he was wrong -- and he only revealed himself as someone not averse to gay-baiting when it appeared to be in his own political interest.

Now, the Democrats are doing the same thing again, this time with Mark Foley. I don't believe the Christian right is either bigoted or short-sighted enough to vote out a bunch of Republican congressmen who knew nothing about the Foley matter simply to express their displeasure -- disgust that all of us feel -- with one congressman's appalling behavior.

Let me see if I get this. Sex predator Mark Foley uses the page system as his teen sex recruiting farm over eight or more years. And Drudge claims he is a victim of a teen prank and democratic politicking. Okay it’s all very clear to me…..or maybe it’s the morphine.

He did? How do we know that?

And Drudge claims the Republicans are a victim of a teen prank and democratic politicking.

He did? Well how does he know that?

Democrat strategists must stand on their heads while they think things partially through.

We are the party that welcomes gays, gay rights, gay marriage, they say. We are also the party that bashes Republicans for not bashing gays.

After all "Mark Foley uses the page system as his teen sex recruiting farm over eight or more years" and the Republicans said nothing.

We are also the party that bashes Republicans for bashing gays.

See, it looks the same whether you are standing up or standing on your head.

Barney Frank ran a homosexual prostitution ring out of his home, and well, he's still in congress.

Studds has homosexual sex with an underage page and he gets reelected and serves for 13 more years.

Foley sends e-mails to pages, resigns in disgrace, and the Democrats want Hastert to resign!? Huh? If this had happened in corporate America, Foley would be gone, and that would be the end of it. Should the CEO resign? That's about the jist of it.

Editor, How about this,

Watchdog Group Disputes FBI's Claims on E-Mails ^ | oct 6, 2006 | Dan Eggen

The watchdog group that first provided the FBI with suspicious e-mails from then-Rep. Mark Foley (R-Fla.) said yesterday that FBI and Justice Department officials are attempting to cover up their inaction in the case by making false claims about the group.
Law enforcement officials said the allegations by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) ARE WITHOUT MERRIT, and they stood by allegations that the group had refused to provide some information to the FBI.

Editor, this dem hoax is unraveling faster than we can comment here on Carol Platt Liebau.

Further unraveling of the Foley case

Early this morning on JOM we went through the cached page blog and noticed something interesting. The cached pages we examined indicate that the mother of one of the pages, Robin Katsoros, mother of Christopher Katsoros a former Pelosi page, told the pages she was working on a screen production of the lives of pages. And she gathered information from them. She is a Conyers and Kerry supporter and he is a student at Georgetown now. It looks like the kids were trying to “sex” up their experiences to get her interested. Here are some bits of it. JOM has information on how we worked this out.

Cue Google Input: Over on the July 19, 2005 Randi Rhodes message board there’s this:
Hi. Randi, Ambassador Joe Wilson and Cong John Conyers are all participating in house parties on Saturday to talk about Downing Street and Rovegate. You can find a link to attend or host one of the house parties on

More than 200 have already been planned everywhere from Buffalo to San Francisco, Sandpoint, Idaho to Rock Hill, South Carolina. Here’s the full list of house parties planned so far.

Wanna guess who’s on it?
Robin Katsaros 12900 Atherton Ct. Los Altos Hills CA 94022

Another poster added this.
... but if you google through, you find she hosts donor parties for Conyers and her son was a congressional page sponsored by guess who? Surprise! Nancy Pelosi. Posted by: anonymous | October 06, 2006 at 12:43 AM

Good stuff! Oh, and by the way, the Republican Party will hold the House and the Senate in November.
