Maybe We're Overthinking This

The Internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a big truck. It's a series of tubes. And if you don't understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and it's going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material soliciting underage children for sex.
-- Sen. Ted Stevens Redux
Perhaps there is an innocent explanation for the House Republicans' apparent cover-up of solicitation of a child:
  • Mark Foley was a Republican member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
  • Foley also served as chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children.
  • Denny Hastert and his Republican lieutenants may have failed to investigate Foley's egregious behavior because they thought he was a member of the House Committee on Ways and Means of Exploiting Children.
It might have been a simple clerical error.
