WS Journal sez: Foxx is oblivious

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I've been busy with my day job, so I apologize if someone else already covered this smackdown of Virginia Foxx by the Winston-Salem Journal.

When a congressman gets caught trying to seduce teenage boys through e-mail, the partisan forces activate. The finger-pointing starts, and the defense shields are raised. That is the basis for the predicament that Republicans now find themselves in regarding the Mark Foley scandal.

There can be no doubt now that House Speaker Dennis Hastert failed to respond adequately to early reports he and his staff received on Foley's contacts with congressional pages. That's a fact.

::

Unfortunately, Rep. Virginia Foxx of Watauga County can't view the situation outside of partisan politics, either. Foxx, playing the role of loyal soldier, has said she's sticking with Hastert because she doesn't know all the facts. But what else does she need to know?

::

That Foxx, a freshman member, is not calling for Hastert's resignation is understandable. That she seems incapable of questioning his performance at all, that she sounds oblivious to the political implications of Hastert's failure of leadership, is not.

Not understandable, indeed.

Congresswoman claims newspaper trying to defeat her
Fifth District Congresswoman Virginia Foxx claims The Winston-Salem Journal is trying to see to her defeat. The paper, Foxx claims, attacks her regularly on editorial pages and doesn’t allow her to respond. Letters to the Editor from Foxx or her supporters are ignored and not published. Unfortunately, Foxx turns her complaints into a fund raising letter, claiming that she needs more dollars to fight both her Democratic opponent as well as the newspaper.

The 5th is considered a safe district for Republicans, but with the anti-Bush, anti-Iraq mood of the public, nobody can take anything for granted.

5th district

Yeah but she underpreformed Bush by 7%. She only took 59% here in 2004, which was a huge year for NC-5 Republicans.

Low turnout year, Roger Sharpe just had a great fundraiser, fired up base, Republicans pissed off at each other...

...and voting against Katrina relief??

Shes a fuckin bitch, and its anybody's game this year.

I'd ignore her letters too.

She's an idiot.

Heres the letters you shuold know...

Foxx...more of the same...

Republican tired tactic to blame the media, blame the messenger, blah, blah, blah borders on the ridiculous at this point. Foxx attempt to do the same is so typical. Ugh.

Okay, time for a joke, forwarded to me by my 15 year old:

A man died and went to heaven. As he stood in front of St. Peter at the
Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him.

He asked, "What are all those clocks?"

St. Peter answered, "Those are Lie-Clocks.

Everyone on Earth has a Lie-Clock. Every time you lie,the hands on your
clock will move."

"Oh," said the man, "whose clock is that?"

"That's Mother Teresa's. The hands have never moved, indicating that she
never told a lie."

"Incredible," said the man. "And whoseclock is that one?"

St. Peter responded, "That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have
moved twice, telling us that Abe told only two lies in his entire life."

"Where's George Bush' clock?" asked the man.

"His clock is in Jesus' office. He's using it as a fan."

Conscious evolution, it's what turns me on. There's got to be a difference between right and wrong.-DTB

LOL

Funny.

Thank you, Todd...

My 18 year old reluctantly confessed he'd heard that joke in elementary school, only it was about Clinton. Whaaaaaaaaaaa.

We hates her forever

God that woman is rediculous

Go Roger Sharpe!!!
