The Washington Times Finds Its Voice

Regarded as the most conservative newspaper in the country, the editors of the Washington Times are calling for the resignation of Dennis Hastert, the Republican Speaker of the House.

House Speaker Dennis Hastert must do the only right thing, and resign his speakership at once. Either he was grossly negligent for not taking the red flags fully into account and ordering a swift investigation, for not even remembering the order of events leading up to last week's revelations -- or he deliberately looked the other way in hopes that a brewing scandal would simply blow away. He gave phony answers Friday to the old and ever-relevant questions of what did he know and when did he know it? Mr. Hastert has forfeited the confidence of the public and his party, and he cannot preside over the necessary coming investigation, an investigation that must examine his own inept performance.

You know the poop has hit the fan when "The Moonie Paper" goes after the most powerful Republican in the Lower Chamber...
