For us Republicans, I’m afraid, pretty bad. The Foley scandal is a microcosm of what’s wrong with Congress: Arrogance, Hypocrisy and Venality. And it has two elements that make it politically lethal: It’s simple. And it’s sex. There are no

Washington Republicans are suffering from bad memories these days. Condi Rice can’t remember a “supposed meeting” in which she was briefed about Osama’s threat before 9/11. Dennis Hastert can’t remember two fellow congressmen telling him about Mark Foley’s electronic adventures

New Orleans hasn’t recovered from Katrina. Nor has George Bush. And neither one’s prospects look good. Bush has never recovered politically because his actions in the storm’s aftermath burned an indelible image in the nation’s mind: an aloof, disengaged patrician
