I just posted an off topic on the last link - I should have waited *grinz*
My money is on the Cunningham/Wilkes/prostitutes at the Watergate and Westin doing him in - first, anyway.
The thing that got me was that all of the news reporters said they were caught off guard, and had no idea why he resigned.
Which goes to show you that they don't read the same news sources the rest of us do -

We can be reasonably confident that Porter Goss did not fail his polygraph test. No polygrapher in his right mind who valued his job would ever flunk the Agency's director. When a CIA director takes a polygraph, it's for show purposes only.

COMMENT #10 [Permalink]
said on 5/6/2006 @ 5:40 am PT...
I think that a "who is the most holy" campaign in political election dialogue is misguided.
There are about 55 million registered republicans, compared to about 75 million registered democrats.
In that many people one will find all manner and means of wrongful behavior in either "party". Party affiliation has no nexus to moral behavior.
The real and valid subject with groups of that many people is human behavior at large and it has nothing to do with the proper dynamics of politics.
No party of those sizes is more moral than another by virtue of the party itself. We are talking human traits, not political party traits, when we do morality based analysis.
In general it is an illusion to think that any race, creed, ideology, or political party is ipso facto worse than another. It is illogical.
IMO the better approach to politics, is to limit the inquiry to political performance in office.
Focusing on the presidency, the courts, and the congress. That is the big story.
When we try to nationalize what is really local politics, thru morality bashing, we distort the human reality by politicising individual human behavior without a valid foundation or purpose.
However, since there is no presidential election this year, the big focus can be on a relatively small number of republican and democratic candidates that have performed as congress members.
And the duty to vote out the majority party when it does damage to the public is a better focus than moral failings in local settings. And this should be based on an analysis of political power, and what was done or not done with that power by that majority party.
To act as if we are morally superior to anyone else as a political platform plank is sicko politics.
I say vote out the republican dictatorship because of what it is as a result of choices it has made. This republican dictatorship created itself and the people should take it down for what it is and is not politically.
Morality bashing is a side show that is for the criminal process, not the political process, when that process is designed to brand one or more political parties as inherently immoral or moral.
The notion of morality or the lack thereof is an analysis of individual behavior fully removed from the notion of political party behavior.
Otherwise the notion of morality will become a tool of hatred and will blunt the understanding necessary to grasp how the congress and the presidency are designed and supposed to work.
If we do not know how it should work then we will miss it when it fails to work.
Holding the president and congress to account is not like holding the Pope to account. The analysis of the two different behaviors are based on entirely different underpinnings, goals, purposes, rules, and dynamics.
As a policy matter republicans are no better nor worse, in general moral terms, than democrats, greens, libertarians, independents, or any other political party in America.
They just can't govern the United States very well at this time and should be removed from governing for that reason ... not whether or not the Pope, the Dali Lama, or any other religious figure approves of their moral behavior based upon that religious figure's analysis of good and bad.

DREDD - Comment # 10
"Porter Goss Resigns" - thread.
DREDD - Comment # 48
"Newly Discovered Diebold threat described as a major National Security Risk." - thread.
DREDD,... I think you missed the point entirely.
Open the link,... from Comment # 8,..
read the headline,.. it clearly addresses the issue of H-Y-P-O-C-R-A-C-Y.
The issue of Republican sexual misconduct was brought to this blog,... to open the topic of
It is a given that we as human beings make errors,.. conduct ourselves inappropriately,..
and our behavior comes under the need of modifications. Democrats and Republicans
no matter what our political affiliations,.. being human,.. find that our conduct is occasionally subject to corrective action.
The thing that irks me are those who march around
thinking they are without fault in any shape,.. form,..or manor. You may know the type,..
holier than thou,.. God's chosen people,.. special,..
more immaculate,... infallible,... not inferior like the rest - those not chosen by "him".
This is a nasty why to do things,.. divide people,..
the chosen,... and the un-chosen,.. it turns my stomach to discuss the subject,.. but a
Rove-enesque reality of our society.
The next question is,.. who are those who are labeled the un-chosen. It is the undesirables,.. the immoral,.. the dregs that no one wishes to rub elbows with,.. to be specifically avoided. Who has been tagged as such,.. in our society were all women and men are viewed and to be treated as equals ?
Why,.. it is the "progressives",.. the "liberals,.. and the Democratic elite. Those people are to be chastised at each and every turn. They do not fear God,.. they are as immoral as they come,... practicing immorality,.. akin to Satan.
Who tagged these people as such ? The Fundamental
Religious Social Conservative Republican Party,..
that is who. The Republican Party - the party of God. The Republican Party - the party of family values. The Republican Party the party of higher social morality. The Republican Party the political party that cherishes each and every human life,.. the party of life and the living.
Who anointed them such,.. was it God ? No,.. they
deemed themselves worthy,... they anointed themselves - to be God's chosen.
This Republican Party,.. this party of - God. Do they
subscribe to the tenets of the Christian Religion,..
to the exclusion of all other religions ?
Do they preach,.. do they practice what they preach,.. do they blur the lines between their religious doctrines and the social political systems.
Are they charlatans and H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-T-S,.. this society seems divided in sharp divisions.
That good book,.. that Christian Book,.. The Bible,...what does it say ?
Luke 6 : 41-43
Mathew 7 : 3-5
"First remove the plank from your own eye,.
then you will see clearly,..
to remove the speck from your brother's eye."
John 8 : 6-8
"If any one of you is without sin,..
let him be the first to throw the first stone."
Now this Republican Party,.. this party of God,.. this
family values party. This Social Conservative
Fundamental Religious Republican Party. Is this the same party who relentlessly went after Bill Clinton
and "Swift-Boated him for an affair he had with a
Monica Lewinsky ? What this not a private matter
that was between consenting adults,.. and best settled between Bill Clinton and his spouse ? Was
it justifiable for Ken Starr to drag this issue through the courthouse ? Was it justifiable/advisable,.. at a cost of $60 million dollars to drag this issue into the
houses of congress ? Who were the congressmen
who did this,.. what political party were they from ?
How clean are their hands,... remember the party of God,.. the party of family values,.. the party of high social morality.
Take a look at these rabid junkyard dogs who went after Bill Clinton,...
Most of the following people have attacked Bill Clinton on the grounds of moral decency, and many actually voted to impeach him. But it wouldn't be fair to leave it at that if we didn't also examine their personal lives. So let's take a look...
REP HENRY HYDE (D-Illinois):
Hyde chaired the House Judiciary Committee which impeached President Clinton, and served as the chief prosecutor of President Clinton in the Senate trial. Hyde claims to be the "conscience" of the House, but concealed his own affair and called for an FBI investigation of the source when it was revealed. He claims to champion "family values", but his five-year affair with a married woman named Cherie Snodgrass (pictured) broke up her marriage. Meanwhile, Fred Snodgrass, the jilted husband, told Salon: "These politicians were going on about how he should have been on the Supreme Court, what a great man he is, how we're lucky to have him in Congress in charge of the impeachment case. And all I can think of is here is this man, this hypocrite who broke up my family." Hyde called the affair a "youthful indiscretion," (although he was just about as old as Clinton). He supports the political "death penalty" for President Clinton's affair, but claims a "statute of limitations" for his own.
REP NEWT GINGRICH (R-Georgia):
Gingrich just finished another divorce on charges of adultery and has remarried a former aide in Congress. This is nothing new. Although opposed to President Clinton on most issues, he does agree that "oral sex is not sex." According to Newt campaign worker Anne Manning, in 1977 she gave Newt oral sex while he was still married to his first wife. She told Vanity Fair, "we had oral sex. He prefers that modus operandi because then he can say, 'I never slept with her.'" In another example of "family values" he presented his first wife (his high school math teacher) with divorce papers in her hospital bed while she recovered from cancer surgery. Despite all of this, The Irish Times reports that the real reason Gingrich resigned from Congress was that Hustler Magazine had credit card receipts showing that he paid for prostitutes.
REP BILL THOMAS (R-California):
This 11-term Republican is chair of the Ways and Means subcommittee on Health, and she is a powerful lobbyist for health-care companies. In June, the Bakersfield Californian reported that Thomas, who is married, was having an affair with healthcare lobbyist Deborah Steelman. In an "open letter to friends and neighbors" (voters), Thomas did not deny the relationship, but said during his legislative career, "I have never let my public decisions be influenced by any factor other than what I thought was best and right on your behalf ... Any personal failures of commitment or responsibility to my wife, family, or friends are just that, personal. I have never traded a public responsibility for a personal one and I never will."
REP BOB LIVINGSTON (R-La.):
Livingston was chosen to replace Gingrich as Speaker of the House. But to the horror of fellow Republicans, Livingston turned out to be an even bigger public relations nightmare than Newt. While Congress plowed ahead in their investigation of President Clinton's infidelities and Livingston prepared to take over the Speakership, Bob suddenly admitted that he had committed adultery "on occasion." Then the press discovered there had been quite a few occasions. A day later he dramatically announced he would resign, saying he wanted to set an example for President Clinton to follow...
... but according to The Irish Times, the real reason for the resignation is that tapes of Livingston engaging in sado-masochistic sex talk are in the possession of Hustler Magazine.
REP DICK ARMEY (R-Texas):
Dick is the second most-powerful man in the House of Representatives, the Majority Leader. A former college professor, Dick has been accused by The Dallas Observer of sexually harassing female students. Young females were exposed to a veritable army of dick
REP BOB BARR (R-Georgia):
House Judiciary Committee member Barr was the first Representative to call for President Clinton's impeachment - even before the Monica Lewinsky story broke. In 1992, Barr was seen licking whipped cream off the chests of two women in bustiers at a benefit for the Leukemia Society. [Source: The Washington Post - May 29, 1996 and May 30, 1996] As for his "family values," this sponsor of the Defense of Marriage Act has been married three times --- his second divorce involved a trial in which he lied about his long-term adulterous relationship with a woman named Jerri Dobbin, whom Barr eventually made his third wife. After the divorce, Barr's child support failings led his ex-wife Gail to provide details of her abortion to Larry Flynt. Gail reported that Barr, one of the most militant abortion opponents in Congress who would outlaw all abortions, actually paid for her abortion.
REP DAN BURTON (R-Indiana):
The Chairman of the House Government Reform & Oversight Committee. He hates President Clinton so much that he publicly called him a "scumbag". Following an expose, Burton was forced to admit that he fathered an out-of-wedlock child, a fact he denied for years.
Still, he has yet to admit that during 38 years of marriage he has committed adultery with dozens (or perhaps hundreds) of women, sexually assaulted others (including a lobbyist for Planned Parenthood), and kept mistresses on his campaign and public payrolls - to the tune of at least a half-million dollars.
REP CHARLES CANADY (R-Florida):
Judiciary Committee member. A leading opponent of abortion, Canady lied to his constituents about his adulterous affair with Sharon Becker, which caused her divorce from Florida businessman Robert Becker.
REP J.C. WATTS (R-Oklahoma):
Watts has risen to the #4 leadership position in the House by loudly championing "moral values." But Watts, a former football player, has spent years covering up his out-of-wedlock children.
REP HELEN CHENOWETH (R-Id.):
In her 1998 campaign, Chenoweth admitted to a six-year adulterous affair with a married associate. In 1995, Chenoweth had denied the affair when asked about it by The Spokane Spokesman-Review, but now she claims a pardon from a higher authority: "I've asked for God's forgiveness, and I've received it," she revealed.
SIDE NOTE: Chenoweth also claims that the government is using secret black helicopters to enforce the Endangered Species Act, which she vehemently opposes. She has broken campaign finance laws on at least two occasions.
REP SUE MYRICK (R-NC):
Myrick describes herself as a "devout Christian." In 1989, Myrick was running for a second term as Charlotte mayor when news reports revealed that she committed adultery with a married man in 1973. Myrick admitted the adultery and won reelection
REP KEN CALVERT (R-Ca):
Calvert is a champion of the Christian Coalition and its "family values." But he was sued as an alimony deadbeat by his ex-wife. He also said "We can't forgive what occurred between the President and Lewinsky." But in 1993 he was caught by police receiving oral sex from a prostitute and attempted to flee the scene.
REP JOHN PETERSON (R-Pa):
Peterson has been accused of sexual harassment and creation of a hostile work environment by six women. Peterson has refused to admit a crime, saying only "I may have been an excessive hugger."
REP. DAN CRANE (R-Ill.) and REP. GERRY STUDDS (D-Mass.):
The House ethics committee on July 14, 1983, announced that Crane and Studds had sexual relationships with teenage congressional pages --- Crane with a 17-year-old female in 1980, Studds with a 17-year-old male in 1973. Both admitted the charges that same day, and Studds acknowledged he was gay. The committee voted to reprimand the two, but a back-bench Georgia Republican named Newt Gingrich argued that they should be expelled. The full House voted on July 20 instead to censure the two, the first time that ever happened for sexual misconduct. Crane, married and the father of six, was tearful in his apology to the House, while Studds refused to apologize. Crane's conservative district voted him out in 1984, while the voters in Studds's more liberal district were more forgiving. Studds won reelection in 1984 with 56 percent of the vote, and continued to win until he retired in 1996.
REP. ERNIE KONNYU (R-Calif.):
In August 1987, two former Konnyu aides complained to the San Jose Mercury News that the freshman Republican had sexually harassed them. GOP leaders were unhappy with Konnyu's temperament to begin with, so it took little effort to find candidates who would take him on in the primary. Stanford professor Tom Campbell ousted Konnyu the following June.
REP. DONALD "BUZZ" LUKENS (R-Ohio):
On Feb. 1, 1989, an Ohio TV station aired a videotape of a confrontation between Lukens, a conservative activist, and the mother of a Columbus teenager. The mother charged that Lukens had been paying to have sex with her daughter since she was 13. On May 26, Lukens was found guilty of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and sentenced to one month in jail. Infuriating his fellow Republicans, Lukens refused to resign. But he finished a distant third in the May 1990 primary. Instead of spending the remaining months of his term in obscurity, Lukens was accused of fondling a Capitol elevator operator and he resigned on October 24, 1990.
REP. ARLAN STANGELAND (R-Minn.):
It was reported in January 1990 that Stangeland, married with seven children, had made several hundred long-distance phone calls in 1986 and 1987 on his House credit card to or from the residences of a female lobbyist. Stangeland acknowledged the calls and conceded some of them may have been personal. But he insisted the relationship was not romantic. Voters of his rural district were not buying, choosing a Democrat in November.
SEN. BOB PACKWOOD (R-Ore.):
Less than three weeks after Packwood narrowly won a fifth term, the Washington Post on Nov. 22, 1992, reported allegations from 10 female ex-staffers that Packwood had sexually harassed them. The Post had the story before the election, but didn't run it as Packwood had denied the charges. With the story now out in the open, Packwood said that if any of his actions were "unwelcome," he was "sincerely sorry." He then sought alcohol counseling. But his longtime feminist allies were outraged, and with more women coming forward with horror stories, there were calls for his resignation. It wasn't until September of 1995 when, faced with the prospect of public Senate hearings and a vote to expel, Packwood announced his resignation.
The next question that comes to mind,.. these
party of God Republicans,.. these family values Republicans,.. these socially conservative republicans,... these fundamentalist religious
republicans,.. How clean were their hands ? How
clean were their fingernails ? To be blunt,.. was
their underwear not just as filthy/dirty as Bill Clinton"s ?
These are not the chosen by God,..
these are human beings,...
who make mistakes and act inappropriately,...
THEY ARE ALSO,..
Porter Goss,... how clean is your underwear ?
There is another saying,..
it is not in the Bible though,..
People who live in glass houses,..
should not throw stones,..
nor rake others over hot coals !!!!!!
There is nothing immaculate
about any of us,...
religion should not be used as a weapon.
SHAME ON THOSE WHO DO SO.

One of the ACTUAL dictionary definitions of congress is:
All of the people profiled were congress members and just doing their jobs!
Bill Clinton wasn't in congress.
neither was Porter Goss.

Hope everybody realizes I was joking in #14 (not about the dictionary definition, that’s real)
The thing I really love about the Clinton impeachment was the fact one of the only people coming out of the mess with REAL honor was pornographer Larry Flint!
I can’t decide what of these two things was one of the most pathetic moments on American television:
Jimmy Swaggart’s “I have sinned” (I got caught) performance.
Bob Livingston’s getting caught by Larry Flint and announcing his resignation.
Larry Flint had threatened to publish an expos’e of many republicans, including details of Livingston’s extramarital affairs, but after receiving a call from Livingston’s wife imploring Filnt not to cause their family embarrassment, he pledged not to go ahead with it.
