Of course they are, this whole thing screams of hypocricy, but as someone said, they're all hypocrits to some degree.. you pander and make statements and assertions that may not be right, or true, or moral, so long as they rally your base. Independence is frowned upon in congress.
But Foley was the chairman of the Missing and Exploited Children committee. I can just imagine what would be happening right now if Foley was a Democrat... it would be ugly. But I'd prefer all candidates stay away from it, and let the election take its course. Just look at the polls; people have a bad taste in their mouths concerning our current politicians, republican or democrat, and that pun is somewhat intended.
