That damned...who?

What's Mallard raving about today?

Gerry Studds, the Democrats, the Media.

Damn, I was wrong. Mallad's not blaming the media for Mark Foley, he's blaming the media and the Democrats. Ignoring the obvious moral relativism of the defense, a couple points. First, if Wikipedia is to be believed, his relationship was with "a 17-year-old male congressional page who was of the age of legal consent. The relationship was consensual (which made it legal, in accordance with state law), although very unprofessional of a politician..." Second, no mention from Mallard of Republican Dan Crane, implicated in the same scandal as Studds. Third, with a name like Studds...

How did this duck get hired as a journalist if he doesn't remember the Studds scandal. Oh right, it was imfirmative action that got him the job. The Studds scandal was very prominent back in its day, it outed Studds for one thing. He didn't resign but people WERE outraged and he never was the same afterwards. The only difference was that Studds wasn't a hypocrite.
