    Speaking of contemptible, here’s a little bit of hypocrisy brought to you by that bastion of truth, justice, and the anti-American way at Daily Kos. Is it important in the scheme of things regarding Foley and the Republicans? Naw. But it sure is fun to make the left look more idiotic than they already are.

    You may be aware that the Kos Kids have their very own liberal encyclopedia called “dKosopedia.” This saves them time and effort when needing to quickly identify what the party line is on any given historical event or individual in politics as well as giving them a shared narrative that surrounds them and binds their universe together. Kind of like the Force but without all those nasty religious overtones.

    A good friend of this site who blogs at Superfun Power Hour has dug up some information that shows how very seriously the Kos Kommunity is taking this Foley business – so seriously that they have amended the entry in the dKosopedia describing the only similar incident in Congressional history – the Gerry Studds disgrace (or triumph depending on your point of view).

    Here’s the original entry on the Studds Stud Scandal via a cached version:

    On July 20, 1983, Gerry was censured for having an affair 10 years earlier with a male page. He turned his back as the charges against him were read. The anti-gay crew had worked hard to demonize him (as they would Barney Frank several years later over allegations of a male prostitute having clients in Frank’s apartment). Gerry held a press conference with the page and admitted to a relationship. They each firmly stated that what had gone on in their bedroom was their business, and absolutely no one else’s.

    Now here is the version as it appears today after having undergone a slight revision – namely the highlighted section above disappears down the rabbit hole:

    On July 20, 1983, Studds was censured for having an affair 10 years earlier with a male page. At the same time, Rep. Dan Crane (R-IL) was censured for having a relationship with a female page in 1980. Studds refused to apologize for his conduct and turned his back as the charges against him were read. He later held a press conference with the page and admitted to a relationship, and they each stated that what had gone on in their bedroom was their business, and absolutely no one else’s.

    It seems that there are people who defend pedophiles like Studds by calling their accusers “the anti-gay crew” and people who condemn pedophiles like Foley unequivocally – except one of the groups gets to erase history whenever it’s convenient to do so. After all, it just wouldn’t do to apologize for one pedophile while putting on your outrage suit to condemn another.

    Again, not particularly relevant to anything except its fun to catch the liberals with their pants around their ankles. And besides, its been 24 hours and no one has called me any vile names. I sorta miss it…
