Official No Blood for Hubris Mental Health Interlude Number Six (?)

Had enough, gentle readers?

It's been a pretty sickening week, what with the uncovering of a pedophile sexual predator under the longterm protection of the GOP.

You still hanging in there? Good on ya, then, but I'm looking for a change of pace.

From the fabulous RJ Eskow, at A Night Light and HuffPo, "Surprised GOP Reacts -- Thought Child Molester Would Be 'Greeted as Liberator!'"

From The Rude Pundit, "Ten Pranks You Can Play On a Child Predator."

And more:

"(Foley's) in rehab, which means it only happened because he was drinking. We've all done it, folks -- drunk dialing. It's just that in Foley's case, it was drunk texting erotic messages to underage pages about masturbation." --Stephen Colbert
"The good news? Florida Congressman Mark Foley has entered rehab. The bad news? Rehab is a 14-year-old boy from Pakistan." --Jay Leno
"It's simple. You drink, you forget things -- especially things that could endanger minors. And I know people are wondering why Condoleezza Rice can't remember a July 2001 meeting with George Tenet where he warned her an al Qaeda attack was likely, even though White House records prove the meeting happened. She probably just blacked out. She was playing a drinking game. Every time you hear George Tenet say 'imminent,' you take a shot." --Stephen Colbert
"We're covering a story about a certain congressman. Let's call him 'Representative Mark Foley, Republican of Florida.' He spent most of his career protecting children from Internet stalkers. Turns out he was doing it so he could have them all to himself." --Jon Stewart
"Let's see what is going on with Father Foley. I'm sorry, Congressman Foley. As I'm sure you know by now, after getting caught sending explicit e-mails to underage boys, Florida Congressman Mark Foley has resigned. So his seat is up for grabs, which is what got him into trouble in the first place." --Jay Leno
"This is like the worst thing to happen to congressional Republicans since last Thursday . . . Most people think GOP stands for Gay Old Pedophile." --Jay Leno
"Mark Foley has now checked into rehab for alcoholism. Oh, shut up. Like that's the big problem. Who cares if he's addicted to Jack Daniels? He's addicted to little Jack and little Daniel. That's the problem." --Jay Leno
"I don't know how long Foley will be in rehab, but I'm pretty sure they don't want him home answering the door on Halloween." --Jay Leno
"Have you all been following this scandal in Washington with ex-Congressman Mark Foley? Well, a couple of days ago, he checked himself into rehab. It had gotten so bad he had to go out and develop a drinking problem.

The ex-congressman, if nothing else, is contrite. He says when he gets out of rehab, he wants a fresh start, and to turn over a new page." --David Letterman

Funny compilation.

I can only add to the Washington Post link - The Justice Department didn't have any problem marching into a certain congressional office some months back, to procure evidence files. Why couldn't they have done the same with CREW if they needed more information so badly?

Because needed less information so badly?

Thanks hubris. I needed some comic relief. Some days I think I've forgotten how to laugh.
