Boozman/Huck sidestep

Posted By on Fri, Oct 6, 2006 at 6:22 AM

Silent Rep. John Boozman has finally reacted -- angrily -- to challenger Woody Anderson's suggestion that the Republican congressman was too close to the House leadership, which covered up concerns about resigned Rep. Mark Foley.  Let's recap: Boozman hardly knows Foley. To say he was on the whip team with him is akin to saying he's a member of the same Lions Club. Foley is a "pervert." Anderson is guilty of character assassination. Though Boozman is quite sure that a man he hardly knows is a pervert, he's far more cautious about Republican leadership. He's not ready to judge THEM. He's going to wait and see what develops before criticizing Denny Hastert.

Also, I see from the morning D-G that somebody finally got a question to The Huckster's press girl about the Foley Affair. The governor, too, is happy to flay Foley as a "pervert." The Republican leadership? He'll not talk about them, whether the multiple people who ignored warnings or the page committee hack who made sure Democrats were kept in the dark. Hate the sinner, love the protectors of the sin is The Huckster's motto.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
