Scyld sent me a link to a very funny video — it’s a spoken re-enactment of the transcripts of the instant-messenger dialogue between disgraced Republican Congressman and pervert Mark Foley and a 16-year old page boy.

Cracked Video: An Overly Friendly Conversation

After listening to this it becomes clear why this scandal is such a huge blow for the Republican party.

However, apparently some of the right-wing media here in the U.S. are handling this P.R. disaster, less than 4 weeks before the forthcoming Congressional elections on 7 November, by simply labelling Foley as a Democrat!

My very own Foley conspiracy theory

That’s another kind of perversion altogether.

Anyway, to end on a lighter-but-still-political note, here’s a joke I received today:

President Bush gets out of his helicopter
in front of the White House carrying a baby
pig under each arm.

The Marine guard snaps to attention,
salutes, and says: “Nice pigs, sir.”

Bush replies: “These are not pigs, these
are Texan Razorback Hogs. I got one for
Secretary of State Rice, and I got one
for Defence Secretary Rumsfeld.”

The Marine again snaps to attention,
salutes, and says, “Nice trade, sir.”
