You Can't Make This Stuff Up ...
Now, the conservative spin begins.
White House press secretary Tony Snow, asked about disgraced former Rep. Mark Foley (R-FL) on ABC's Good Morning America, said he considered it unfortunate that "people are thinking, 'OK, can I get political advantage out of this'."
In other words, any Democrat who asks why it was that the Republican leadership knew about Foley's inappropriate actions for months -- or as one page suggested, years -- and didn't do anything about it is taking "advantage" of the situation.
Snow hopes to bully Democrats into saying nothing, so that the issue will go away.
Meanwhile, watch Republican pundits out and about making apples-and-oranges comparisons to openly gay Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), and making apples-and-oranges comparisons between Foley and the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky affair.
Because of course, that's not taking "political advantage" of the situation.
