Bummer Week for BSA

Man alive. It's been a pretty bad week for the Boy Scouts.

What's the over/under on how long it takes Rick Santorum to declare that a "culture of unpreparedness" has left Scouting at the center of a storm of tragedy?

I'm sure the Senator would agree that maybe a few acts of God will come down on the BSA for being just "generally" evil, but at least the blame can't be laid on Boston-style libertinism. After all, the Boy Scouts have banned gays. What virtue! And since their HQ in Irving, Texas is so far away from the hub of liberal sin that is Boston, Mass., I guess while the odd punitive lightning strike is understandable, it definitely isn't a place where you'd expect anyone to be repeatedly molested by their leaders. Wait...
