all I have is chive-talk

Why yes, I speak chive...

As if Indian-Americans hadn't suffered enough at the hands of Republicans this season!

Whatchoo talkin' 'bout, macaca?

I mean, whose at fault, you for farting, the others for giving you a dirty look or the church for not being a place conducive to farting?

The waitress who served the Huevos Rancheros with a side of Refried Beans.

Anarch--
I must insist you stop monkeying around.

According to the banner at ABCNews.com, Foley's attorney will hold a presser in about 5 min to drop a "bombshell."

Any guesses?

Me: His attorney will state that Foley has been the victim of an extortion campaign and never sent any of those IMs or emails and only resigned because he had an alcohol problem and didn't want the accusations to be an issue in the upcoming elections.

Any guesses?

all the "pages" were actually FBI agents, conducting a sting operation.

all the "pages" were actually FBI agents, conducting a sting operation.

That's better, or how about a combination: he was part of an FBI sting operation to smoke out purported extortionists.

That Foley's actually a Democrat.

when he returned from a place well known for its underage sex trade

Arkansas?

Things still seem to be standing here in DC, so it must not have been much of a bombshell. Oh, here it is (abcnews.com banner): "FORMER CONGRESSMAN MARK FOLEY WAS MOLESTED BY A CLERGYMAN AS A TEENAGER AND IS GAY, ACCORDING TO HIS ATTORNEY".

I think someone here (or several people) predicted that announcement yesterday.

Hastert: they're out to get him.

Interviewed by Rush Limbaugh today, House Speaker Hastert said Mark Foley’s inappropriate behavior was “a political issue” and promised Rush that “we are going on offense.”

The “offense” is an effort to portray the scandal as a conspiracy specifically timed by liberals to affect the elections. “We are the insulation to protect this country,” Hastert declared, “and if they get to me it looks like they could affect our election as well"

Etc. And: oh, no!

(Anyone remember "Mr. Bill" from SNL in the Seventies?)

And the sad thing is that there are enough dim bulbs who believe Rush and Hastert about how the "Dems are out to get them."

Anyone remember "Mr. Bill" from SNL in the Seventies?

doing Rush and Hastert Mr Bill style would require a lot more clay, I think...

This post at TPM Cafe's Election Central bears on Hilzoy's question about Reynolds and Fordham.

My take: Reynolds is lying like a rug. He sent Fordham, or agreed freely to his going, to get Foley out of the way of the media for a few days.

Arkansas?

Somewhat to the south and east, actually, although you do put me in mind of a number of jokes.

That is to say, your comment does, not you qua Slartibartfast.

Gwangung, enough for what? I'm still hoping any people who'd believe Rush on that are in the 30% that are unreachable regardless.

the 30% that are unreachable regardless.

Ah yes, the 30% who would respond to BTKWB with "he did it to show the terrorists how tough we are!'

"FORMER CONGRESSMAN MARK FOLEY WAS MOLESTED BY A CLERGYMAN AS A TEENAGER AND IS GAY, ACCORDING TO HIS ATTORNEY".

yeah... and that is relevant, how ? not many blocks were busted by that one, i'd wager.

Oooo, check out the cage match between Baseballcrank of the blog of the same name (and also just "Crank" on redstate) and john cole (actually, I just skimmed it so it might not be much of a cage match).

My take: Reynolds is lying like a rug. He sent Fordham, or agreed freely to his going, to get Foley out of the way of the media for a few days.

And if Fordham is a good soldier, he'll say that he didn't get approval, and then hope his falling on the sword will be viewed with approval. If he doesn't, it will really indicate total implosion.

That is to say, your comment does, not you qua Slartibartfast.

Here's to reading all the way to the end of the thread before responding. Actually, I thought you were talking about Thailand; oh what a story that would have been.

Slarti, you honestly don't know about Rush and the Viagra from his vacation in the Dominican Republic?

I thought the Arkansas crack was pretty offensive, but maybe I don't know enough about Arkansas.

lj: doing Rush and Hastert Mr Bill style would require a lot more clay

brings to mind this from Billmon.

"I thought the Arkansas crack was pretty offensive, but maybe I don't know enough about Arkansas."

I was thinking it was perhaps some sort of not-quite-making-sense hit on the Clintons, but basically I chalked it up as Slart being cryptic and it not being worth asking about.

No: Alabama and Virginia were pretty much all worn out.

And probably I should have looked here before saying anything, but I don't tend to do such things before cracking wise. Or unwise, more likely.
