Moralists Are Invariably Monsters

As the example of Mark Foley (who devoted all his legislative energies to protecting children in cyberspace, while devoting all his personal energies to cybersex with pubescent lads) proves, an excessive concern with the others' personal moral decisions is indicative of a deeply troubled conscience, or deeply perverse practices, or both. William Bennett would be another textbook example of this. And we could insert many, even countless, other examples of degenerates on a crusade to eradicate degeneracy.

Glenn Reynolds has as excellent piece on the depravity of the Right, starring its most pompous contemporary hypocrite, Rush Limbaugh. Two brilliant paragraphs:

"If the term "moral degenerate" has any validity and can be fairly applied to anyone, there are few people who merit that term more than Rush Limbaugh. He is the living and breathing embodiment of moral degeneracy, with his countless overlapping sexual affairs, his series of shattered, dissolved marriages, his hedonistic and illegal drug abuse, his jaunts, with fistfulls of Viagra (but no wife), to an impoverished Latin American island renowned for its easy access to underage female prostitutes.Yet that is who Hastert chose as the High Priest of the Values Voters to whom he made his pilgrimage and from whom he received his benediction. The difference between Rush Limbaugh and Mark Foley, to the extent there is one, is one of hedonistic tastes, not moral level.

Rush Limbaugh isn't just tolerated within the party that stands for religious piety and moral strength. He is a leader of it, arguably the leader of its most righteous wing. Is it really all that surprising that a political movement that has chosen a moral degenerate like Rush Limbaugh as one of its most revered and morally respected leaders is not all that bothered by -- and therefore actively harbors -- the Mark Foleys of the world?"

It shouldn't really be surprising that the self-proclaimed Values Party® is really a criminal syndicate, many of the worst people in the world bound together by greed and hatred, and sharing as MO nauseating, sanctimonious hypocrisy. These people need to be exposed, repudiated and prosecuted if America is to be saved, democracy is to be saved, civilization is to be saved. Al Quaeda is a blip, like Day School Satanists, compared to the threat from within which has become the GOP, and their Democratic enablers.
