Hastert blames the Foley affair on…..ready for this?…..George Soros!
Hastert added, “that when the GOP ‘base finds out who’s feeding this monster, they’re not going to be happy.’”
Good God, man. Hastert might be the dimmest Speaker the country has ever seen. His book would certainly indicate that. But is he even this dumb?
But hey. Maybe he’s right. Maybe the mere invocation of George Soros’ name — head-scratching non-sequitur that it is — will rev up the GOP fundraising machine, which will churn out cash for Hastert in spite of his covering up for a sexual predator and general incompetence. If so, how sad for Republicans.
But given that even conservative direct mail guru Richard Viguerie has called for Hastert to resign, and is openly pulling for the GOP’s defeat come November, I think Denny’s being overly optimistic. Or delusional.
