Funny how Hypocrisy Street always leads to Memory Lane....

I see that House Speaker Dennis Hastert is digging in his heels, refusing to resign over his increasingly obvious "see no evil, hear no evil" policy regarding Mark Foley's indiscretions. I can't help but recall the circumstances that led to Hastert ascending to the Speakership in the first place: he was handpicked by Tom DeLay after Speaker-designate Bob Livingston resigned when, during the debate over the possible impeachment of then-President Clinton, his own extramarital affairs came to light.

Rise by the sex scandal, fall by the sex scandal.
