But Right-Wingers Never "Nuance"

Okay, on the one hand:
Priest admits he fondled Foley.

On the other hand:
Priest denies sexual relationship with Foley. Right. Sure, he
"...described several encounters that he said Foley might perceive as sexually inappropriate."
Ya think?
"They include massaging Foley while the boy was naked, skinny-dipping together at a secluded lake in Lake Worth and being nude in the same room on overnight trips."
"...might perceive as sexually inappropriate"? I should think so. But, then he adds :
"...Mercieca said there was one night when he was in a drug-induced stupor and there was an incident but he couldn't clearly remember."
Okey-dokey, then.

The priest's story is bad enough. Especially in light of the fact that nobody is surprised by this sort of behavior by a Catholic priest. Nobody. It's business as usual. It's so well-accepted that Foley and his attorneys know that involvement with Catholic priests can now be used as an excuse for a lifelong pattern of sexual deviance.

Two pitiful souls whose cycle of exploitation has come full circle.

If Bill Clinton had blamed a Catholic priest and a bottle of Grey Goose for Monica, I guarantee you we never would have heard about a nuclear test in North Korea. In fact, if Jesus had come back, we wouldn't have known--every media outlet known to man (and some to monkeys) would have been commenting on the president's inability to accept responsibility for his actions. Fortunately for Republicans, only Dems have free will.

That link you gave to the Priest's sorry justification......instantly into my mind flew....."It depends on what the meaning of "is", is." The GOP's in danger of wearing out a decades long campaign tool - "SEX!" Everybody's yawning, and saying " what?

Laurie: Yeah, if Clinton, or any Dem, had done anything remotely as bad as the repukes, they'd suffer execution-by-talk-radio-host. And I mean really.

Future: Another weird paradox... that conservatives make extremism commonplace.
