Fox Turns Foley Into a Democrat

In true Harry Potter style, Fox News magically transformed Mark Foley into a Democrat:

The only explanation that makes any sense, is that Bill O'Reilly was so upset that Mark Foley stopped IMing him, that he lost control.

The obvious answer is that, like Dick Armey, Foley never truly subscribed to the virtues and morals of the Republican party, and he turned his back on them, so he must be a closet Democrat.

In late-night reruns, they did not have any party affiliation on those same clips.

Isn't that even more damning?

Having realized their honest mistake they couldn't bring themselves to "label" Congressman Foley.

O'Reilly's show dishonest!? Say it ain't so!

But Foley has always been a democrat! When did Fox News start using 1984 as a guide on how to rewrite history?

Not J.K. Rowling, George Orwell. This reminds me of the scene in 1984 where Oceania changes sides in the war and news arrives half way through a political rally: hacks just pull down the propaganda posters and the speaker changes the name of the "enemy" mid-speech.

Someone needs to send this in to Olbermann. Get it out in the open. Shame Fox into either canceling O'Reilly or letting him drag them back down into the abyss from which they crawled.

Well, he was once a Democrat -- a fact various conservative people feel the need to keep mentioning.

So the question is: Did he become a pedophile after converting to Republicanism or did he just find Republicanism more in line with his pedophilic tendencies.

I'm waiting for the bloggers that went apes**t over an "X" appearing on a graphic of Cheney for 0.7 second to make a lot of noice about this, but apnea is not in my plans for the wait.

-c +s in "noice." duh.

Haven't you all heard? Speaking of Fox, that channel couldn't get up an running until the '90's because they had to wait until they were able to get green cards for a critical mass of ex-Pravda writers and spinmeisters over from Moscow. They were out of jobs and Roger Ailes desperately needed some propagandists. And given the Military Commissions bill I suspect the line for torturers and jailers is a mile long at the US Embassy in Moscow.

The obvious answer is that, like Dick Armey, Foley never truly subscribed to the virtues and morals of the Republican party, and he turned his back on them, so he must be a closet Democrat.

Andrew do you read that stuff on purpose? God, I'm going to have to scratch my eyes out now. That woman is crazier than people give her credit for.

Is there no stone of deceit that Fox will leave unturned?

This 1860 quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson (The Conduct of Life) seems appropriate for the Republican Party nowadays...
"The louder he talked of his honor, the faster we counted our spoons."

The obvious answer is that, like Dick Armey, Foley never truly subscribed to the virtues and morals of the Republican party...

Yup, and I'll bet he doesn't wear a kilt either.

(for the noncognoscenti, that is a reference to the 'No True Scotsman' fallacy)
