The Democratic Temptation

John Dickerson makes a good point:

For GOP leaders to pay a heavy political price requires either more evidence that they really knew what Foley was doing or for Democrats to form an alliance, at some level, with people who find homosexuality outrageous no matter what the age.

If I were the Dems, I would exercize restraint. This is a case of abusing power in creepy ways. In that way, it speaks to the broader problem of GOP corruption and degeneracy. People can draw that conclusion without having homophobia pandered to - by either side.
