Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • TheNavOne

    I guess in America, everyone has the opportunity to turn the page.

  • ManchuCandidate

    I guess there is going to be a lot of talk about how attractive the Jonas Brothers are and how to IM without getting caught.

  • Kev-O-Tron

    The inside of Mark Foley’s mind must look like the Neverland Ranch.

    OT but Cougar McCain’s on the Today Show. She says it’s high time we do something for people suffering from migraines but healthcare reform….meh.

  • norbizness

    Original title: Boys! Boys! Boys!

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    So is NAMBLA gonna be a sponsor?

  • thejesusandmarycheney

    a journey inside that mind must look like some fucked-up Disney ride populated by grabby Catholic priests in Reagan masks and naked gyrating twinks, blue blazers, CK briefs, and khakis crumpled next to the stripper poles.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    The cognitive disconnect between Foley’s leering pedophiliac mug and the FIT personal training hottie is mind-blowing, I tell you.

  • bureaucrap

    It’s just another example of our Constitution’s vigor: Every American has a sacred right under the First amendment to make a fool of himself repeatedly in public.

  • sham69

    I can just picture him walking right into that radio station and saying, “Whose dick do I gotta suck to get a radio show around here?”

  • Decker

    “Inside the Mind of Mark Foley” – every bit as appetizing as “Inside the Cum Soaked Thong of a Republican Lobbyist”. Thanks for the brain scars, GOP.

  • thejesusandmarycheney

    [re=405395]thejesusandmarycheney[/re]: Ew, that guy probably has, like, chest hair! No Foley Holey for him.

  • Noonan

    There are a lot worse places on Mark Foley to go inside of.

  • gurukalehuru

    North PALM Beach, LOL

  • Jim Demintia

    This show, which is already the greatest radio program ever conceived, will be like a combination of Howard Stern and Captain Kangaroo.

  • Min

    Is North Palm Beach really that hard up for radio personalities?

  • friendlyskies

    Leftist Mad Libs!

    Inside the [fill in blank] of Mark Foley

  • S.Luggo

    [re=405429]friendlyskies[/re]: Trousers.

  • groove

    Lip freakin’.

  • Native of SL UT

    Is he going to get a studio Sybian like Stern? For the boys?

  • thejesusandmarycheney

    [re=405429]friendlyskies[/re]: poppers cabinet

  • Norbert

    [re=405429]friendlyskies[/re]: jejunum

  • SeminoleInDior

    Oh boy! Christmas comes twice this year!

  • ella

    “Inside the Mind of Mark Foley” Empty enough to be an echo chamber.

  • factnorfiction

    Assuming you aren’t joking about the title of this promising show, I am going to go ready myself for this with a handle of vodka+Tylenol

  • AbstinenceOnly Ed

    When Mark Foley says, “Good morning, my fellow Americans. It’s great to be returning to you after a dark and trying period in my life. I have transgressed; I have sinned. I’m no boy scout,” he imbues the last sentence with such wistful regret, such pathos, such deep longing, that you can really feel his remorse.

    Well Mark, you’ll always be an eagle scout in my book!

  • Gopherit

    You can measure with an egg timer how quickly this is going to degenerate into the Drunken Mark Foley Morning Show.

  • Mr Blifil

    I look forward to his upcoming interview with Sanford.

  • Enturbulate

    I have GOT to get out of Florida! This Seaview 960 radio station is staffed by some of the biggest tools in radio, which is saying a hell of a lot. Included in the cast of scrotes is local radio legend (sic) Dick Farrel. His little audio hate fests are amazing displays of right-wing paranoia. Lookie! He has is own style free website on which you can listen to his podcast diatribes! Fun! http://dickfarrel.net/default.aspx

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    [re=405429]friendlyskies[/re]: Ben-wa balls.

  • QueenOfTheDamned

    He’s going to cohost, simulcast, or whatever with Mark Sanford in South Carolina. They’re going to IM and email each other on air. And random unsuspecting congresscretins who haven’t been outed yet. And Lindsay Graham.

  • bopumofu

    Y’äll back off. Rumor has it Bachman’S husband cured him of teh ghey. He’s a real American now.

  • thejesusandmarycheney

    [re=405703]QueenOfTheDamned[/re]: I can’t wait to find out LiGra’s insane fetish. Ten bucks on “emetophilia”

  • badmuthagoose

    Inside the Ass of Mark Foley.

    Someone had to say it.

  • QueenOfTheDamned

    [re=405712]thejesusandmarycheney[/re]: I don’t know; I would think it would almost have to involve teabags myself. But if you’re right, and he likes to receive, finding “partners” must be a breeze. Practically anybody who meets him.

  • zhubajie

    And does he come out of the closet as a pederast?
