The Washington Page-turner

I'm just sitting here in amazement, trying very hard to refrain from putting up incredibly tasteless jokes, while I watch the Republicans gutting each other in their mad scramble to distance themselves from this scandal.

As noted by Craig Crawford on Olbermann's show last night, they'll throw Hastert under the bus . . . if he fits. But the scandal just keeps widening (no pun intended).

And this morning? Raw Story reports:

Congressman Rodney Alexander (R-LA) has told CNN that one page who received sexually-explicit instant messages from Representative Mark Foley (R-FL) has been threatened.

Alexander sponsored the page in question.
