Topic: "Look Who's Talkin'" (2)
Former Congressman Foley appeared to be taking the coward's way out. Oh no, it couldn't be his fault, it had to be the alcohol! Another politician signs his name to the register under the name of Betty Ford, and that would end his culpability in whatever really took place, or, at least, that is what Frodo thought. For Former Congressman Foley also alleged that he was the victim of sexual abuse by a Priest.
Frodo admits that he has been stymied as to the rationale of Former Congressman Foley's allegation. What is even more confusing is the fact that it appears to be true. Today an intrepid reporter tracked down this goofball Priest on some little dinky island off the coast of Malta, for the love of Mike. Sounding entirely akin to Peter Lorre in "Arsenic and Old Lace," this weirdo admitted to the "touching" and the "fondling" of little Former Congressman Foley 39 years ago. He commented on the fact that they went "skinny-dipping," and took saunas together in the nude. He denied any "penetration" or "rape," however.
As bizarre as it is, Frodo still can't figure why Former Congressman Foley raised the issue? He had already established his argument as a drunk who was not responsible for his actions. Was this a determined effort to strike back at his Church for allowing him to be victimized as a 12 year-old? Could it be that he was intentionally attempting to expose the secretive coziness of secular leadership to the unpublicized criminal behavior of religious leaders? Or could it be that Former Congressman Foley simply wanted to humiliate the leadership of his own Party by allowing this "scandal" to drip on, day-by-day, and never leave the public eye in the electoral season? There seems to be plenty of reason to speculate about the motivations of this sad little man.
Frodo has a theory. Potential Fact 1--Former Congressman Foley has pictures. Potential Fact 2--Former Congressman Foley needs money. Ergo, only those who know that their faces do not appear in the photographs publicly recall exactly when they became aware of Former Congressman Foley's aberrant behavior.
Frodo wonders exactly where Former Congressman Foley has stored the multimedia cards for his digital camera.
