'Scuse Mama While She Gets Political for a Minute

Things that do not turn a person into a pedophile:


-Being a drunk. I suppose being a pedophile might turn you into a drunk, though.


-Being gay. Most scientific studies on the subject indicate that 98-99% of child molesters identify as heterosexual.


-Having been molested as a child. (According to multiple surveys, something like one in five women in the U.S. report they have been sexually assaulted at least once before the age of 18. Are 20% of adult women in the U.S. pedophiles? Uh, no.)


This has been a public service announcement. We now return you to your regularly scheduled fluffy little Mommyblog.

- Being a Democrat! (although Fox news seems to prove otherwise, by mis-labeling MF now a such)

The guy's guilty for using recycled excuses (let alone being just plain guilty).

Foley is disgusting on so many levels, it's hard to count. And so are his fellow republicans for trying to cover it up and/or pretending they weren't aware of the depth of the problem.

OTOH, based solely on what's been uncovered, he doesn't appear to be an actual pedophile because the targets of his attention were too old, i.e., adolescents. He's just disgusting (again!), thoroughly immoral, and completely unworthy of public office. And claiming to take full responsibility for his poor, inappropriate behaviour while pointing to other problems in his life jsut makes it worse.
