Drudge Shills For Sexual Predator Enablers Inc. (GOP House Leadership)

"My sickness and Tom Foley's
sickness are only this much apart"

Matt Drudge is taking the "blame the victim" game to new heights in the Foley scandal:

From Crooks & Liars:

Clip #1: And if anything, these kids are less innocent — these 16 and 17 year-old beasts…and I've seen what they're doing on YouTube and I've seen what they're doing all over the internet — oh yeah — you just have to tune into any part of their pop culture. You're not going to tell me these are innocent babies. Have you read the transcripts that ABC posted going into the weekend of these instant messages, back and forth? The kids are egging the Congressman on! The kids are trying to get this out of him. We haven't got the whole story on this.

Clip #2: You could say "well Drudge, it's abuse of power, a congressman abusing these impressionable, young 17 year-old beasts, talking about their sex lives with a grown man, on the internet." Because you have to remember, those of us who have seen some of the transcripts of these nasty instant messages. This was two ways, ladies and gentlemen. These kids were playing Foley for everything he was worth. Oh yeah. Oh, I haven't…they were talking about how many times they'd masturbated, how many times they'd done it with their girlfriends this weekend…all these things and these "innocent children." And this "poor" congressman sitting there typing, "oh am I going to get any," you know?

I'd love to hear Hastert & Co.'s comments on Drudge's defense of their inaction. "16 & 17 year-old beasts" -- I'll have to remember that excuse. Poor Tom Foley and poor Denny Hastert, those evil children have ruined their careers.
