Okay, here's the deal in a nutshell: The "right", that is, conservatives, republicans, neocons, and other fascism-apologists are all over the blogoshere and the media trying to justify Foley's actions by claiming that Clinton's affair was somehow comparable. That is ridiculous, and here is why:
Clinton had consentual sex with an adult. His action was not sanctioned by the democratic party; it was in fact condemned by them (and still is).
Foley, on the other hand, is a pedophile, in fact, a serial pedophile, whose depraved perversion was officially sanctioned and protected by republican leadership. The main difference between Foley and Clinton is pedophilia vs. conenting adult behavior. That's the difference between these champions of hypocrisy who have, for years, fashioned themselves as the epitome of conservative values, and the rest of us who are lucky enough to see right through them: they protect and nurture child molesters, while we find such behavior repugnant. Their followers, aupporters, rationalizers and apologists, slavishly defend them, as if brainwashed, swearing that these are the morally superior leaders, and they all swear that the greatest evil on earth is liberalism.
Add to that, the fact that anyone who allows such behavior to go unchecked, let alone protects it by covering it up, is complicit, right? I mean, if you know someone is molesting a child and you allow it to go on, are you not part of the problem (to put it mildly)? How about of someone is molesting your child, and another person knows about it, but keeps it a secret to protect the molester? Those who call define themselves as conservatives, even as the leaders and examples of true modern conservatism, think that's okay, apparently.
I think that says a lot about us and them.
