Kos Sexy?

Sorry, I just don't get it. I do get that brainy men are sexy, but angry, loony men appearing in political ads peering through windows? Guys who say "screw you" to American contractors whose bodies were desecrated in Iraq? Whatever floats your boat, I guess. There are quite a few people on death row with devoted groupie followings, so I guess it takes all kinds. If Mary Matalin can find James Carville sexy then I guess nothing should surprise me.

I just wrote "I guess" three times in this short post. I guess that means I don't really know what to make of this one.

What I can't understand are perverts like Foley..he just resigned..I guess the "Family values" he had were too weird..now this is a "looney man" gonna be a little late for a Rebulican candidate to jump in...and this was a safe seat..y'all keep preachin' and screechin' about sex and Dems..

Kos isn't hideously ugly, but he's kind of creepy-looking. I think it's the sparse eyebrows, I'm not sure. But I don't find his personality attractive at all. If I did, I probably wouldn't be criticising his looks. I don't know much about the others on Oprah's list, not being in the US, except for Barack Obama. And while I disagree with a lot of his politics, his sincerity is attractive.

Intelligence is very definitely sexy - Stephen Fry (despite being gay!) has always been near the top of my list. I had to break up with an astonishingly good-looking boyfriend a few years back becase, while he was divine to look at, he was thick as two short planks.

Saying he was "deeply sorry," Congressman Mark Foley (R-FL) resigned from Congress today, hours after ABC News questioned him about sexually explicit internet messages with current and former congressional pages under the age of 18.

I bet you wish for the good old days when republicans were only know as "The Party of Corruption".

Lorie: I rememeber that there were web sites (during the primaries for the 2004 presidential election) dedicated to "sexy Howard Dean". I only wish I were kidding.

As for the List, I'm beginning to wonder if anyone over at Harpo Studios )and the extended Oprah empire) is straight. While I'm glad the list ignores Actors (who seem to disproportionately comprise the "Hottest" lists), I think it could be a lot more "inclusive".

As an aside, I am getting beyond tired of the coronation of Barack Obama. I have yet to see him do anything substantial, something that demonstrates his ability to be effect as President, i.e. creating and steering legislation through congress, taking an independent approach to a controversial issue, voting contrary to Dick Durbin, having an organized, effective operation (Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun Times wrote that she did not believe that Obama could be effective as a presidential candidate as his staff and office are not up to snuff -- and she's one of those who continually tout him as the Democrat "Rock Star"), superior oratorical skills, or identifying a core issue that would be his focus. Some might say the Iraq War, but twice Obama has answered contituent queries inre the W.O.T. by exclaiming the Iraq War is "dumb". A Cult of Personality even greater than that of Bill Clinton surrounds this guy, but none of his supporters can articulate just what he stands for.

Boy, Foley sure picked the wrong party...if he was on the other side of the aisle it would be a quick apology for the appearance of any impropriety brought on as a result of the smear tacticts against him, couple weeks off to 'reconnect with his support structure', and back in the saddle by Halloween. Alas, he had to go and be a Republican, which means when you do something like this you'd damn well better resign. Maybe a still-in-office William Jefferson can spare some cold, hard cash to get him back on his feet.

From ABC News:

Congressman Mark Foley, Republican from Florida, resigned today just hours after ABC news questioned him about a series of sexually explicit instant messages involving current and former underage male Congressional pages. Foley used the login name Maf54.

Maf54: Do I make you a little horny ?
Teen: A little.

Foley was the chairman of the house caucus on missing and exploited children and has long crusaded for tough laws against those who use the Internet for sexual exploitation of children

nogo postal: The difference... (Below threshold)

nogo postal: The difference in Foley and the democratic loons is "he resigned' without being asked, or destroying his entire family. He was not even 'impeached' for lying under oath. Some people guilty, or not guilty, have the ba**s to protect their family, get on with their life, and let the slime merchants like you find another target. There is not a maybe in here. All facts including the reference to you being a slime merchant. Bet your family is real proud of their dumb a**.

So, republican congressman ... (Below threshold)

So, republican congressman acts innapropriately by having sexual conversations with a minor. Resigns, to avoid further embarassment to his family, the minor and the party.
Democrat president has sex with an underling in the oval office. Denies it. Turns his presidency into a carnival sideshow. Admits it when evidence become irrefutable. Blames his enemies for all of the harm done to the office and the party.

One of these men is condemed by nogo, Lee and others, the other is celebrated.

Slime merchant?...I will tell you that any adult trying to seduce an underage kid of any age is the slime merchant..by the way I believe that Clinton was a "slime merchant"...We are talking about underage here...He freakin' resigned because Pedo's like him have a history..he just didn't decide to try to seduce a young boy for the first time..if you do not see the difference..
For anyone here to try to defend his action says more about you than him...just click the top listen

Scrap you are really sticking up for a child molester? Please don't retort with a bash on Clinton either, because I think the man screwed up worse than he ever imagined and his act was indeed punishable. No sweat off my brow.

Foley's family is destroyed regardless and giving an 'anti-gay' boy child lover props for resigning instead of embarrassing himself further doesn't really look good when you still decide to stand behind him. At what point do politicians need to screw up before the unflappable followers start to .. well... flap? Maybe he needed to eat a baby or something.

Lorie Byrd:

Nogo - Here is the difference and I am not really surprised you don't see it... Democrats defended Bill Clinton having oral (and cigar) sex with an intern close to the age of his daughter. Are there any Republicans defending Foley? Oh, another difference, Bill Clinton didn't resign. Instead he denied it until he had ample time to blame the prosecutor. If Republicans acted like Bill Clinton maybe we would be seeing Foley claim the page was a stalker who hacked into his email and sent the messages himself. I guess we will never know.

*gasp!* Sex with a consenting adult! Th-th-that's indefensible! What were we thinking?!

Are there any Republicans defending Foley?

For having sex with a consenting adult? I'd certainly defend him for that. Is that what he did?

Oh, another difference, Bill Clinton didn't resign.

Wait, I thought it wasn't about sex. Isn't that what you all said? Was he supposed to resign about sex?

There's the difference. And I am surprised you don't see it.

The most shocking thing is not Foley's actions. After all, Republicans have a long and treasured history with pedophile scandals.

What is shocking is the ease with which you all rush to compare this vile maggot of a human being with Clinton. And that some here would not only stand up for this pustule, but imply that he demonstrated honor in his subsequent actions. Sick and disgusting.

[Note from Lorie: For the record, "nogo postal" who speaks from the left, brought up the Clinton comparison. Others, including me, responded to his comment.]

Lorie Byrd:

Brian, I guess you had to misquote me to adequately twist what I said. NOGO POSTAL is the one who brought up the Clinton comparison. I would never have gone there otherwise, but thought it needed to be answered.

Here is the deal, we all know how liberals feel about Bill Clinton having phone, oral and cigar sex with an intern who was obviously working under him, and how they feel about him trying to smear her as a lying, delusional stalker until the DNA proved otherwise. You are all on record there, and obviously here, dismissing the entire affair as nothing but consentual sex. Republicans are on record saying we think it is not only a destraction and a security risk to do that in the Oval Office with a young intern, but that it is kinda creepy and sad. The positions were staked out years ago and have not changed.

Now watch what Repubicans say about Foley. I don't expect any blaming the page or attacking the opposition. Republicans will probably be harder on Foley than the Dems will be. That is a difference between the way Dems and Republicans react and try as you might, those are the facts. No equating the acts, but definitely a difference in other respects.

Now, this is a post about Kos and a sexiest men list. There is a post at Wizbang Politics about Foley which has been up for a couple of hours. Please comment there on it. I will reserve the right to delete future Foley comments here unless there is a Kos connection or Foley made the sexy men list. :-)

nogo postal:

As I have posted above..I believe Clinton is a leech who used(maybe still uses)his "power" to have sex with women outside his marriage..
However,..with all the women who were brought out..none was underage..
But I am surprised..that there is no condemnation over the homosexual aspects to this...
See, I am open to learning..and I am learning that posters here accept homosexuality..
So even if we might disagree over age difference..it is good to see that Lori and others have no problems with homosexual activities..
I have misjudged Lori and others on this issue and appolgise for this...

Here is the difference and I am not really surprised you don't see it... Are there any Republicans defending Foley?

Let's find out.

Republicans will probably be harder on Foley than the Dems will be. That is a difference between the way Dems and Republicans react and try as you might, those are the facts.

Oh, really?

The page worked for Rep. Rodney Alexander, R-La., who said Friday that when he learned of the e-mail exchanges 10 to 11 months ago, he called the teen's parents. Alexander told the Ruston Daily Leader, "We also notified the House leadership that there might be a potential problem," a reference to the House's Republican leaders.

And to show that they were being hard on Foley, the House leadership immediately took... what action, exactly?

That so many dem women say they think Clinton is "sexy" of course sets the stage for the bizarre 'O' list. So, yep.

Lorie Byrd:

Okay, I told you all in my comment above that I would reserve the right to delete any off topic comments (which I hate to do) because there has been a Foley post up for a while now at Wizbang Politics. There is now an additional one up.

This is the last Foley comment here, then I will delete any in an effort to steer the conversation to the Foley threads. Brian is right that Foley did at first try to, if not downright deny it, downplay it. I had not read that until after my earlier comments. I think the cycle of that denial has been less than 24 hours. Bill Clinton lied for months and called those telling the truth, liars, for months. I think what Foley did, including the denial, is horrible. I think he should be held accountable. I read earlier that Dennis Hastert has either referred or commenced some sort of ethics action, but I assume that is now moot with the resignation though. I expect there will be a criminal investigation. So far every blogger I have read, including me, is in favor of such an investigation and appropriate punishment to the full extent of the law (and probably then some).

Okay, now either talk some sexy Kos or scoot over to Wizbang Politics. Thanks.

I don't get the sexiest man lists. For some reason they don't make sense to me in the same way that sexy women lists would, if a sexy women list was even allowed.

It seems completely obvious to *me* that the 100 sexiest men are going to be men that almost no one has ever heard of before.

Probably they're all in uniform. ;-)

Or wearing a hard-hat or cowboy boots or...

I think the completely sexiest man ever in the history of the world was an Airman med-tech assigned to the nursery at Clark AB 15+ years ago. Six foot four, at least, dark hair, movie star features... big hands... showed me how to turn my baby over in his bassinette in one easy movement without picking up baby's head and trying to support baby's wobbly neck. Yes, post-partum hormones and my apologies to my (still) wonderful husband but... Oh. My. Gawd. Tall, dark, handsome and holding a newborn.

All other men are mere poseurs.
