Protect the (sexy) Children

There are some phrases that are non-starters from the beginning. "My drug use is...........," never gets off the ground because it is indefensible to use drugs. I think the same is true with "my relationship with boy pages is.........," gonna go nowhere fast.

Of course, if you are a minority, or poor, or powerless in some way, the line is drawn much harder about what is mitigated. I saw in an interesting story that adds a truth worth reminding people about double standards:

Houston-based Dope House Records today plans to release the latest album for Latin rapper Carlos Coy, also known as South Park Mexican, who is currently imprisoned for molesting a 9-year-old girl in 2001.

When Devils Strike is Coy's first album release since he was sentenced to 45 years in prison four years ago.

"If people want to buy the record, well that's just a sad commentary that people are interested in what a child molester has to say," said Assistant District Attorney Denise Oncken. "He was convicted of it. The jury found that he abused a 9-year-old little girl."

As far as Pagegate is concerned, the Hon. Mr. Foley, or any of the other soon-to-be revealled congressional pedophiles will never see a single day in a prison cell. I love the General's summary of this growing scandal:

Dear Rep. Shimkus,

Take a deep breath and relax. I know things look bad for you now, but it's going to be okay. You just have to remember that even though you procured pages for Mark Foley after you were warned of his predatory nature, Speaker Hastert was okay with it.

Indeed, the Speaker, after discussing Foley's page problem with you, Rep. Reynolds, Majority Leader Boehner and former House Clerk Jeff Trandahl, declared "Mission Accomplished" on the PR front. That's why the Speaker and the Majority Leader didn't lift a finger to stop you from holding a slave auction where eager young pages could bid for dream date with Foley. The House Republican Caucus had already "turned the corner" in its battle to suppress negative news about one of its members.

You have nothing to worry about. You were only doing your job as Chair of the Page Board, ensuring that the pages serviced every Republican member's needs.

It looks pretty clear that the congressman was having sex with a teenager in San Diego. That's child rape.
