Neocon shifts the blame

In a move completely in character for the GOP, Rep. Christopher Shays attempted to justify the Republican coverup of Mark Foley's pedophilia by saying, "At least he didn't kill anybody." Shays was referring to Ted Kennedy in 1969. Clearly no one explained the flawed logic of comparing a current even to something that happened during the sixties. Shays' mother must not have told him two wrongs don't make a right either. CNN, Shays on Foley handling: At least no one died:

HARTFORD, Connecticut (AP) -- Republican Rep. Christopher Shays defended the House speaker's handling of a congressional page scandal, saying no one died like during the 1969 Chappaquiddick incident involving Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy.

"I know the speaker didn't go over a bridge and leave a young person in the water, and then have a press conference the next day," the embattled Connecticut congressman told The Hartford Courant in remarks published Wednesday.

"Dennis Hastert didn't kill anybody," he added.

Shays' comments recalled the Chappaquiddick incident, when Kennedy's car ran off a Massachusetts bridge, killing his passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne. Kennedy did not immediately report the tragedy, and he later pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident.
