    OK, so Foley heads into rehab a few hours after being exposed for pedophilia or at least inappropriate gay messaging with a page. Isn't that convenient?

    If Hastert survives this storm he (and Bush) should get on the House floor and say, "OK if any more of you clowns have an alcohol or drug problem, you better enter rehab TODAY, because we are not going to let you hide behind it if and when you get caught for unethical behavior."

    If the guy is an alcoholic, he's gonna have to get sober before he can deal with any of the rest of his problems. What's he supposed to do? Stay drunk? Would that be the next appropriate step to take ?

    My point is that if someone who is on OUR payroll has a problem they should deal with it now rather than later, and also that once they are warned they won't have an excuse to run and hide when they get in trouble.

    he should treat his homosexuality problem, too! If that were cured, this incident would never have happened.

    My point is going in to rehab is hardly what I call running or hiding. Should all of our elected officials have or get thier shit together ? Of Course.

    No, but the investigation will eat up more of our money than his salary ever did.

    So any other boozers or pillheads in the House should be ordered to clean up their acts, potentially avoiding another incident like this.

    He isn't a homosexual, he's a pedophile.... you do understand the term "consenting adults", right, hon?


    oh...and no one gets pedophilia from being a drunk, though he might be a drunk because he knows he's a disgusting pedophile.
