Who Knew Congressman Foley Was a Closeted Democrat?

by Ann Coulter
Posted Oct 04, 2006

At least liberals are finally exhibiting a moral compass about something. I am sure that they'd be equally outraged if Rep. Mark Foley were a Democrat.

The object lesson of Foley's inappropriate e-mails to male pages is that when a Republican congressman is caught in a sex scandal, he immediately resigns and crawls off into a hole in abject embarrassment. Democrats get snippy.

Foley didn't claim he was the victim of a "witch-hunt." He didn't whine that he was a put-upon "gay American." He didn't stay in Congress and haughtily rebuke his critics. He didn't run for re-election. He certainly didn't claim he was "saving the Constitution." (Although his recent discovery that he has a drinking problem has a certain Democratic ring to it.)

In 1983, Democratic congressman Gerry Studds was found to have sexually propositioned House pages and actually buggered a 17-year-old male page whom he took on a trip to Portugal. The 46-year-old Studds indignantly attacked those who criticized him for what he called a "mutually voluntary, private relationship between adults."

When the House censured Studds for his sex romp with a male page, Studds -- not one to be shy about presenting his backside to a large group of men -- defiantly turned his back on the House during the vote. He ran for re-election and was happily returned to office six more times by liberal Democratic voters in his Martha's Vineyard district. (They really liked his campaign slogan: "It's the outfit, stupid.")

Washington Post columnist Colman McCarthy referred to Studds' affair with a teenage page as "a brief consenting homosexual relationship" and denounced Studds' detractors for engaging in a "witch-hunt" against gays: "New England witch trials belong to the past, or so it is thought. This summer on Cape Cod, the reputation of Rep. Gerry Studds was burned at the stake by a large number of his constituents determined to torch the congressman for his private life."

Meanwhile, Foley is hiding in a hole someplace.

No one demanded to know why the Democratic speaker of the House, Thomas "Tip" O'Neill, took one full decade to figure out that Studds was propositioning male pages.

But now, the same Democrats who are incensed that Bush's National Security Agency was listening in on al-Qaida phone calls are incensed that Republicans were not reading a gay congressman's instant messages.

Let's run this past the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals: The suspect sent an inappropriately friendly e-mail to a teenager -- oh also, we think he's gay. Can we spy on his instant messages? On a scale of 1 to 10, what are the odds that any court in the nation would have said: YOU BET! Put a tail on that guy -- and a credit check, too!

When Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee found unprotected e-mails from the Democrats about their plan to oppose Miguel Estrada's judicial nomination because he was Hispanic, Democrats erupted in rage that their e-mails were being read. The Republican staffer responsible was forced to resign.

But Democrats are on their high horses because Republicans in the House did not immediately wiretap Foley's phones when they found out he was engaging in e-mail chitchat with a former page about what the kid wanted for his birthday.

The Democrats say the Republicans should have done all the things Democrats won't let us do to al Qaeda -- solely because Foley was rumored to be gay. Maybe we could get Democrats to support the NSA wiretapping program if we tell them the terrorists are gay.

On Fox News' "Hannity and Colmes" Monday night, Democrat Bob Beckel said a gay man should be kept away from male pages the same way Willie Sutton should have been kept away from banks. "If Willie Sutton is around some place where a bank is robbed," Beckel said, "then you're probably going to say, 'Willie, stay away from the robbery.'"

Hmmmm, let's search the memory bank. In July 2000, the New York Times "ethicist" Randy Cohen advised a reader that pulling her son out of the Cub Scouts because they exclude gay scoutmasters was "the ethical thing to do." The "ethicist" explained: "Just as one is honor bound to quit an organization that excludes African-Americans, so you should withdraw from scouting as long as it rejects homosexuals."

We need to get a rulebook from the Democrats:

-- Boy Scouts: As gay as you want to be.

-- Priests: No gays!

-- Democratic politicians: Proud gay Americans.

-- Republican politicians: Presumed guilty.

-- White House press corps: No gays, unless they hate Bush.

-- Active-duty U.S. military: As gay as possible.

-- Men who date Liza Minelli: Do I have to draw you a picture, Miss Thing?

This is the very definition of political opportunism. If Republicans had decided to spy on Foley for sending overly friendly e-mails to pages, Democrats would have been screaming about a Republican witch-hunt against gays. But if they don't, they're enabling a sexual predator.

Talk to us Monday. Either we'll be furious that Republicans violated the man's civil rights, or we'll be furious that they didn't.

Booze Turned Foley Gay
Foley's lawyer has also revealed that the disgraced congressman was drunk when he engaged in online sex chats with gay teens.

If there's any good that can possibly come from alchohol abuse, I guess that's it.

Millions of gay teens take their lives each year for lack of any positive reinforcement from like-minded adult mentors. While the vital service Foley provided to the gay community doesn't excuse his Violation of the Sacred Trust, it must be taken into consideration when Dennis Hastert is sentenced.

Roman Catholics Turned Foley Gay
Mark Foley's lawyer suggested yesterday that a Roman Catholic priest who molested him as a child may be responsible for his homosexual proclivities.

I guess if anything good can possibly come from sexual abuse, that's it.

Frankly, I'm a little surprised, though. I had always understood that people were born gay. It's impossible to turn someone who isn't a homosexual into one, so any claims that gay rights groups or progressive schoolteachers are attempting indoctrinate children into a gay lifestyle should be looked upon as the insane ravings of homophobic parents. Now I am learning that Roman Catholic priests are going around, magically transforming heterosexual young boys into flaming homos.

All I can say is, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, PRIESTIES!

With so many members of the Gay Community killed off by AIDS and Republicans every year, perhaps this is God's way of replenishing the species so we can continue to enjoy a wide variety of fabulously decorated park restrooms.

Do you...follow politics? Do you imagine that all would be sweetness and light, if not for Ann Coulter? What color is the sky in your world?

Wouldn't be sweetness and light, MM. It would still be politics. But she and her ilk have made it far, far uglier than it ever needed to be.... not because she writes the garbage she writes, but because it gets spewed and regurgitated.... it's like an infectious disease.... infecting debate, discussion, problem solving.... and leaving us with arguments about the political party of a pedophile......

Actually, it's entertaining to have a conservative for once dishing the same extremism your way that for years has been a one-way, lefty street. I find it amusing as Hell how you villify her at every chance.

Ah - so we conservatives should just consume MSM/DNC spew like good little pupils - the way we did for thirty years before alternative media came along and spoiled things? Lively discussion holds no terrors for me, jillian - it's part and parcel of a free existence.

I don't generally like Coulter, but she's pretty much right about this. The Democrats are gloating too much about something that is not really about party politics. Sure it's funny to see a Republican in trouble about gayness when the Republicans have been mainly anti-gay. But that's a minor part of the overall story.

BS. She backs up everything she says in anything she writes with facts. Its hardly garbage. You just dont like the fact that she doesnt put up with the crap you guys try to push on the nation.

I thought it was the Democrats, in and out of the media, who were "polarizing the political spectrum" by hammering on Hastert for something he didn't do... and which would have been illegal for him to do.

That was Ann's point. Didn't you read what she wrote before you complained about it?
