Second best laugh of the week so far

James Taranto, writing in today's Best of the Web Today, devoted space to l'affaire Foley. Near the end he compared the Foley scandal with the Lewinsky scandal and offered up a transcript of an interview by Tim Russert on Meet the Press. Russert interviewed Missouri Senate candidate, Claire McCaskill:
Russert: You're having Bill Clinton come in to raise money for you. Do you think Bill Clinton was a great president?

McCaskill: I do. I think--I have a lot of problems with some of his, his, his personal issues. I said at--

Russert: But do you--

McCaskill: I said at the time, "I think he's been a great leader, but I don't want my daughter near him."

And now for Taranto's bon mot:
What a ringing endorsement! And hey, say what you will about Mark Foley, at least you can trust him with your daughter!
