"(It was released by liberals on) the last day of the session of Congress, when it couldn’t be responded to do — the last day," he said. "It is the day you would not want something like this to break. And they’ve known it for years. They’ve held it for years, and then they threw it out there on the last day of the session demanding that the speaker of the house resign."
Dobson said it, but it could have been just about any Republican at this point. They have settled on a counter-strategy, and this is it.
It is undoubtedly the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Even if some Democrats knew – even if every Democrat knew about Foley – even if there was a vast left-wing conspiracy to time release of the news about Foley’s behavior as an October surprise – the Republicans knew and didn’t get out ahead of it. They didn’t fix it. They did nothing.
What they’re telling voters is "We were too stupid to see that a pedophile in our caucus might be a political issue, so we did nothing and let the Democrats use it to their political advantage. Vote for us!" That has to be the dirt-fucking-dumbest damage control strategy ever. Not only are the Republicans immoral enough to harbour and protect a pedophile, but they let the Democrats shove their noses in the mess right before a key election.
Only one conclusion is possible. They richly deserve to lose.
