As the Mark Foley scandal continues to wreak political havoc, the Washington Times has called for Aurora's Denny Hastert to resign. Neither the Trib nor the Sun-Times goes quite so far, but both express outrage over the Speaker's evasiveness and call for further action. The Tribune, in particular, describes Hastert's handling of the matter as "dismally short of adequate." Can he stay standing? Given the way this business is unfolding, there's no telling what even this afternoon will hold.
