Rick, you say the ship will sink with Hastert at the helm. Maybe it will. Maybe it already has. But trust me — if Hastert resigns, the ship will definitely sink. That’s what some people don’t seem to get. The admission of wrongdoing represented by a Hastert resignation will simply hand the House to the Democrats with a big fat red ribbon around it. Make no mistake. If Hastert stays, the Democrats may overplay their hand and some of the more hotheaded folks on the Right may start to calm down and start blaming the person who is responsible — Mark Foley.
