Prodigal son

One of the many reasons I don't read the society page of the Palm Beach Post is the likelihood of stumbling into a story like this, but sometimes accidents happen.
"Once we sat him down, quite a few of our patrons stood up and went to his table to shake his hand. I think even he may have been surprised. You can tell he's still the hometown boy. He's always been a gentleman around here, and it shows."
So says the maitre d' at the Cafe L'Europe in Palm Beach, just a short limo ride from Ann Coulter's house. Of course he was talking about disgraced Florida Representative Mark Foley. Nothing surprising here. It's not as though he became a Democrat or criticized the President and after all, what happens in Washington stays in Washington.

And now this

A local newspaper in Foley's former district, the Stuart News, published a poll taken yesterday showing that Mark Foley would win against the Democrat, Tim Mahoney, who won election after Foley dropped out. So much for the mind of the Conservative.

Same treatment Tom Delay got in Texas and Cunningham in California, I'm sure. When Bush finally gets the hell out he will be a friggin' god in his hometown.

I've updated the post with the results of a poll taken yesterday by the Stuart News showing Foley would win by a landslide today if he ran against Tim Mahoney, the Democrat who beat him in the last election.

I wish there were a way to opt out of the human race. I really do prefer the company of monkeys.

Is there anything these hypocrite liars can do to lose the support and following of their sheeple?

I think that blind partisanship is a basic design flaw of the human animal.
