Tom Reynolds, one of the members of the House leadership who was in the know on the Foley dalliances held a press conference yesterday in which he used small children basically as human shields to keep reporters from asking questions that ought not be asked in front of children. Reporters asked Reynolds to send the children away to ask other questions, he refused, although that part isn't seen in this video. Watch it here.
This is beyond the pale even for this sordid matter. The tough talking republican party now just does not protect children, it actively uses them to hide behind for the sake of saving their own asses in the November election. This is truly the most pathetic thing I have ever seen in politics.
