Ben Stein provides his take on the Mark Foley controversy:

On the one hand, we have a poor misguided Republican man who had a romantic thing for young boys. He sent them suggestive e-mail. I agree, that's not great. [...] I hope it won't come as a surprise to anyone that a big part of male homosexual behavior is interest in young boys.

Of course, it's okay for him to say things like this because some of his best friends are gay:

Don't get me wrong. My very best friend is gay. I have many gay friends and they are great people. But how the Democrats, the party of gays, can be coming down this hard on a [member of Congress] who's gay is simply beyond belief. One of my top, favorite congressmen, Barney Frank, is openly gay. Might he say a word in defense of his fellow gay [member of Congress] right about now?

Hmm, that's a great point, Ben. Why doesn't Congressman Frank stand up and defend his fellow gay colleague? Oh, yeah, that's right. Because Barney Frank isn't a sexual predator looking to molest underage children! It's completely infuriating that he thinks the two are compatible as if gay = boy lover. And I wonder, since his best friend is gay, if he's ever confronted him on how much he loves young boys. After all, it is a big part of gay behavior. And one would think that since it is, perhaps Ben should report his best friend in order to keep the children of the world safe from the millions of gays who are all about the young boy lovin'.

Oh, and in Ben's world, stalking an underage boy is the moral equivalent of participating in consenual, though inappropriate, sex:

On the other hand, we have a Democratic party that worships (not likes, WORSHIPS) a man named Bill Clinton who did not send suggestive e-mails as far as we know, but who had a barely legal intern give him oral sex kneeling under his desk in the Oval Office [.]

Jeebus, asshole! Do you honestly believe this? Are you so blinded by your ultra-partisan views that you cannot see the difference between the two? What Clinton did was wrong on a number of levels. What Foley has done is wrong and ILLEGAL on a number of levels. If you really refuse to see the difference, then there is no helping you.
