For once, I completely agree with Ann Coulter

Wow, Ann Coulter has a great article - here.

Naturally, about the hypocrisy of the Democrats throwing fits about Foley when they jump to protect Democrats who do bad things - mind you, she does not excuse Foley, neither do I - but, methinks the Democrats doth protest too much.

Here is just a little excerpt:

In 1983, Democratic congressman Gerry Studds was found to have sexually propositioned House pages and actually buggered a 17-year-old male page whom he took on a trip to Portugal. The 46-year-old Studds indignantly attacked those who criticized him for what he called a "mutually voluntary, private relationship between adults." ..... . . . . . . .

Washington Post columnist Colman McCarthy referred to Studds' affair with a teenage page as "a brief consenting homosexual relationship" and denounced Studds' detractors for engaging in a "witch-hunt" against gays: "New England witch trials belong to the past, or so it is thought. This summer on Cape Cod, the reputation of Rep. Gerry Studds was burned at the stake by a large number of his constituents determined to torch the congressman for his private life."

.

Apparently, in DC, the age of consent is 16, by the way.

If you ask me, anyone younger than 21 should be off limits for all adults.

Again, I'm no fan of Dennis Hastert. But demanding he resign from Congress is a bit much.

And John had a lot to say about this on the day the news came out - so it would be a good idea to go read his post, too.
