G.O.P.

Captain Ed / Captain's Quarters:
Hastert Knew While Foley Flew  —  Well, well, well.  It appears the Republicans actually can make the Foley controversy worse.  As if it wasn't bad enough that John Boehner knew about Foley's track record of sexual harassment of his underage pages, now it turns out that Speaker Denny Hastert lied …

Did Hastert know last year that Foley was a pervert?  —  I hate having to defend Hastert, partly because he's a jackass and partly because it's bad form to defend anyone in any way associated with a child molestation scandal, no matter how much the facts are in their favor.

Breaking: Times of London obtains Mohammed Atta martyrdom video; Flashback: "Nineteen Martyrs"  —  I've always hoped we wouldn't have to suffer an Atta video.  I can stand videos of any of the other 18 — they're all basically fungible — but to be taunted from the grave by the hijacker everyone recognizes is intolerable.

Legislating Violations of the Constitution  —  With little public attention or even notice, the House of Representatives has passed a bill that undermines enforcement of the First Amendment's separation of church and state.  The Public Expression of Religion Act - H.R. 2679 …

FAQ - Torture!  —  1) Let's get right to it.  Do you support torture?  —  Let me say what I do support: When it comes to high value targets in the war on terror, wannabe evil-doers who possess or might possess important information, I support any measures necessary to extract that information.
