Fox: If Hastert stays, they lose 50 seats.

* jonah goldberg:
"But let me make a prediction: Despite the Crucible-like moral panic sweeping Washington right now, this will backfire on Democrats, liberals and the gay left.
[]
Now, it would be unfair to suggest that liberals have been clamoring for gays to have an unfettered right to hit on teenage boys and are only reversing themselves out of partisan opportunism."
* corn:
"Last night a person who covers Capitol Hill told me that Hastert would be out within a week. But Hastert is indicating he's digging his nails into the Speaker's desk. That's good news for Democrats and bad news for GOPers. There's blood in the water. And Hastert is signaling he'd rather bleed further than leave. This won't be pretty."
* drudge via chris:
"According to two people close to former congressional page Jordan Edmund, the now famous lurid AOL Instant Message exchanges that led to the resignation of Mark Foley were part of an online prank that by mistake got into the hands of enemy political operatives, the DRUDGE REPORT can reveal... Developing.."
* fox has been saying all day that if Hastert stays, Repugs lose 20 seats. If he stays, they lose 50 seats. Fox hates hastert.

What is it with all these pages having names like Bryce, Tyson, and Jordan? Is it some sort of class thing, or is that really what 17 year olds are named these days?

Rimone, this twit is just like the rest of the wingnuts. I've never been able to understand how these people think they are tracing any sort of logical path . . . always - no matter who is doing the talking - they get to totally unrelated conclusions with no visible means of support. We are seeing virtual levitation right before our very eyes.

Also, please note:
'unfair' adj 1: showing favoritism to someone not a Republican 2: not fair; marked by injustice or partiality or deception (unless by a Republican); "used unfair methods" (i.e., Democratic Party methods); "it was an unfair trial" because the judge admitted truthful evidence not favorable to the Republican defendant; A Democratic Party member "took an unfair advantage" against a lying, thieving, Republican by telling the truth and producing photographs that caught the Republican in the act. [syn: unjust] [ant: fair]
