I'm a man who simply thinks homosexuality is wrong, much less sex with minors of the same-sex. Mark Foley allowed himself to be politically exploited by indulging in such a taboo fantasy, and as such he resigned his position and is now under investigation; justice has been done: he did something socially repugnant, and lost his job. Bravo.

But since when does House Speaker Dennis Hastert have anything to do with Mark Foley's dreams of making sweet gay love to underage Congressional Pages? Last time I checked, writing erotically charged love-letters to minors was not a crime; having sex with them was the sticking point, something of which Mark Foley has the privilege of being innocent until proven guilty.

So Hastert may have given Foley some sound advice: stop having cybersex with the pages before you embarrass us, and is now all of a sudden guilty of some cover up? Mark Foley hasn't even been charged with a crime yet, so Hastert's "guilt" is less than remote.

But of course if you talk to Senate and House Democrats its the scandal of the year; how Hastert aims to protect his sexually deviant party-chum in a brazen display of GOP corruption. Time Magezine even publishes the cover-story, complete with the picture of an elephant's ass: "How a tawdry sex scandal could spell the end of the Republican Revolution."

What a joke! While Clinton indulged in salacious felatio with a White House intern (and then lied about it under oath, which unlike blow-jobs and emails really is a crime), Speaker Hastert is under fire for trying to protect his own reputation? And what of it? So what if Hastert knew of Foley's "NAMBLA"-like emails to underage pages? No crime had been committed. And even if Foley is indeed guilty of getting frisky with a same-sex minor, Hastert's alleged knowlege of the emails does not in any way purport to prove he knew about Foley's hypothetical man-love.

This whole thing amounts to a Democrat's wet-dream of making political hay of what Time eloquently coins as: "America's favorite taboo."
