J. Dennis Hastert: BFL?
In the New York Times Online Headlines this morning these two articles appear side by side:
"Bush Joins Hastert at Rally, and Lavishes the Praise" President Bush came to the home turf of the House speaker, J. Dennis Hastert on Thursday to give him a resounding pledge of support before a revved-up group of Republican donors, activists and leaders who were clearly glad to witness a presidential lift for the buffeted dean of their state party.
"Ex-Aide to Foley Testifies of Warning Speaker's Office" A longtime aide to former Representative Mark Foley testified before the House ethics committee that he warned Speaker J. Dennis Hastert's office at least three years ago about Mr. Foley's behavior.
The Pubs better get their stories straight. Not that I think the Dems will be much better if we take back the House, Senate or, dare I say, even the presidency. I do think they'll at least pay lip service to things like social issues and women's rights. Sort of the way the Pubs pay lip service to the "religious" right.
The picture doesn't have anything to do with this post, obviously, I just think Katherine Heigl is pretty.
