Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (Oct. 4) - Former Rep. Mark Foley, under investigation for sending lurid Internet messages to young male Capitol Hill pages, issued a series of revelations from rehab, including a claim that he had been sexually abused as a teen.

Quotes from Mark Foley's lawyer (I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't read it myself)

“Mark Foley wants you to know that he is a gay man.”

“Based upon the experts that I’ve spoken to,” Mr. Roth said, “the combination of alcohol and mental illness can result in inappropriate conduct,...”

He said Mr. Foley was raised a Roman Catholic and attended Catholic schools in Lake Worth

........Oh, now I get it! That's supposed to explain it all!

There's quite a bit of speculation over pieces of a puzzle that would put Foley in a Scientology rehab center. This would help explain the ridiculous and inherently gay-bashing implications from his attorney.
