I’m not exactly sure where it is that Ben Stein gets his gay friends, but he obviously manages to select only pedophiles as friends. As a conservative and a gay man, I feel horrible for Rep. Foley. The anger among the religious right towards any gay or lesbian forced him into a closet. But at the same time I also consider him an absolute beast and totally despicable for using his position of authority to attempt to find an adolescent male for sexual gratification of any kind, even if it was only in his fantasies.
I can very safely say that the last time I was attracted to someone of that age, was when I was that age myself! My partner of 10 years feels the same way. Any attempt by an adult to use a minor sexually is simply abhorrent and deserves the condemnation of our entire society. There are no ifs, ands, or buts about it. I cannot think of any circumstances in which pedophilia should be tolerated. Oh, and Mr. Stein, having an affair with a consenting adult is wrong, but it is in no way the moral equivalent of pedophilia. And if it were, then try taking a look at the many Republicans on their 3rd and 4th wife, many of whom did commit adultery.

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
