Why, look. It’s Heckuvajob Brownie, Dubya, and that queer liberal alcoholic Foley. And – is it? It IS! – That’s J.E.B. in the background, bringin’ up the rear, so to speak.
John Aravosis of Americablog, who was the first to pick up on my Fordham story, explains why he didn’t go public sooner on Maf54:
“I published the Foley emails on my blog last Thursday after ABC News story broke. I had received the emails in July, as I already explained on this blog last Thursday, but I didn’t think it was appropriate to publish allegations of pedophilia/child sex predation, even against a member of the other political party, until I had all the facts (and not being Speaker Hastert, it’s not like I had access to the House GOP leadership, to Foley or the pages to quiz them about the emails). Shortly after I received the emails, I found out that CREW had also received copies of the emails and had immediately passed them to the FBI. I figured that took care of the situation (silly me to trust George Bush’s FBI, they didn’t investigate) and I let the issue go until I saw ABC had published the story last week and that Foley had confirmed to ABC that the emails were real.”
