Looking Increasingly Ugly for Entire GOP

By on 10.3.06 | 9:06AM

The Foley fallout has prompted some strong language from fellow conservatives, some of it published today in The Washington Times. Many of you undoubtedly have seen (because Drudge highlighted it) the newspaper's call for the resignation of House Speaker Dennis Hastert, but in a news report other conservatives are similarly outraged, like Richard Viguerie:

"This isn't an isolated situation," he said. "It is only the most recent example of Republican House leaders doing whatever it takes to hold onto power. If it means spending billions of taxpayers' dollars on questionable projects, they'll do it. If it means covering up the most despicable actions of a colleague, they'll do it. They've lost their moral rudder."
Tough to argue with that, isn't it?
