The Blame Game

From Media Matters for America...

Seeking to minimize the extent to which the House Republican leadership can be blamed for the scandal surrounding former Rep. Mark Foley, several congressional Republicans, media figures, and conservatives have posited various conspiracy theories and placed blame on just about everyone and everything else -- including liberals, Democrats, the media, "politically correct culture," gays in Congress, and congressional pages.

On a lighter note, Crooks and Liars recorded a great video clip of Jon Stewart talking about this entire scandal...

Jon Stewart and the Daily Show team really went to town on the scandal-ridden GOP tonight. From the cancellation of the "Annual GOP Barebeque and Nude Cub Scout Wrestle" to the passing of the Foley buck among the House Leadersip, Jon puts a hysterical spin on a truly disastrous scandal that's getting worse by the minute...

Reynolds: I did what most people would do in a work place. I heard something, I took it to my supervisor.

Stewart: "I took it to my supervisor?" Tom Reynolds…Congressman? or Assistant Manager at Applebees?

Jon also catches Hastert in the bald-faced lie of saying he openly took questions after his press conference, Hannitys fudging of Monica Lewinskys age and O'Reilly's "mistaken" on-screen graphic.

Take a look...
