Shays, Kolbe, Foley: More Weird Republican Sex

BranfordBoy at My Left Nutmeg asks about Shays sanity:

"Looks like Chris Shays really, really, really wants to lose. How else can you explain this insanity from the Wednesday debate?"

Shays: Then the next question is, well what has the US done? Well it has been accused of doing torture. That's what it's been accused of. Now I've seen what happened in Abu Ghraib, and Abu Ghraib was not torture, it was outrageous, outrageous involvement of National Guard troops from Maryland who were involved in a sex ring and they took pictures of soldiers who were naked. And they did other things that were just outrageous. But it wasn't torture.

It's difficult though how the dialogue in the rest of the world about that when you have news media all around the world saying we're torturing people. The bottom line for me is this. We follow the Geneva Convention period. That's what we do.

I think the insanity results because all republicans ever think about is sex.

BUT why do republicans have such freakin' weird ideas of what sex is supposed to be?

Republican Mark Foley is one example, and Republican Kolbe may very well be another example:

From NBC news:

Federal prosecutors in Arizona have opened a preliminary investigation of a camping trip Congressman Jim Kolbe, R-Ariz., took 10 years ago that included two teenage congressional pages, a Justice Department spokesman told NBC News. NBC News first reported on the camping and rafting trip on Tuesday.

Kolbe's office denies anything "improper" happened.

More NBC:

NBC News interviewed several people who were on the trip, and their accounts vary. One participant, who requested anonymity, said he was uncomfortable with the attention Kolbe paid to one of the former pages. He was "creeped out by it," he said, adding that there was a lot of "fawning, petting and touching" on the teenager's arms, shoulders and back by Kolbe.

Chris Shays seems to know alot about deviant sex. I could have lived happily without this information.

he's too nasty for words. Do you think he's having a breakdown? Hes saying all these odd things and he WON'T SHUT UP.

It really seems like he is losing his mind, or he is starting to feel desperate because farell is leading in the polls.

The only other possibility is that he is trying as hard as he can to lose this election. The statements he is making are just that outrageous.

hey hey.. do I see another name added to the disgraced Republican list??

The list justs gets longer every single day. It's like a Republican scandal free-for-all the last couple of weeks.

hey.. are you going to the Johnson/Murphy debate on the 23rd at the Portuguese Center? I saw the video from the one in NB... it was pretty hairy for Nancy, considering that's her home base. I did not feel all that much love (but I'm not a good judge, I hate that old broad).

If you check out the front page of My Left Nutmeg they have a pretty good rundown of how badly Johnson did and how well Murphy did.

Apparently Johnson was pretty confused when confronted with the facts about her dismal record.
