On this afternoon's Situation Room, Paul Begala and Bay Buchanan discussed the Foley scandal, and they were in full agreement.
Begala: "If somebody said that to my kid they will deal with a law firm Smith and Wesson. It's going to my 12-gauge."
Something I never thought I would say, but now I must; Bay Buchanan was absolutely right (as well as Begala). This is only an issue of partisanship if you are a politician whose party is being brought down by this scandal. For everyone else your response will come as a parent.
We are now starting to see the typical Republican apologists not acting so typical. They are coming out in strong opposition to the way the Republican leadership in the House handled this whole situation. The fact that the Republican leadership did not act soon enough is what will cost them this election. It is not Foley's fault, but theirs.
