Former Rep. Mark Foley is in an alcoholism treatment center three days after resigning from Congress amid allegations that he sent inappropriate messages to teenage pages, Foley’s attorney confirmed Monday.
Man, this rocks. We had an alcoholic child molester chairing the Missing and Exploited Children’s Caucus, we have Captain “Series of Tubes” chairing the Senate subcommittee on technology, and Native hater John McCain chairing Indian Affairs… this is pretty much the best government ever. I gotta hand it to them for milking every last possible ounce of public entertainment out of our tax dollars, and here I never thought that they’d be able to outdo the Lewinsky scandal.
So I gotta ask, what are their plans for 2008? Charles Manson for the Judiciary committee? Maybe Muqtada al-Sadr for the Homeland Security committee? David Duke for the African Affairs subcommittee? C’mon, we all know the government’s only good for a laugh these days anyway… what’s it gonna be?
