One More Try

I have been working on a post about Sen Larry Craig since the story broke and it has just not come together. So I am going to try it once more before I move on to my college football ramblings for the week.

First, I need to mention that I do not care if the man is a homosexual. Who a person sleeps with is not my business as long as it is between two consenting adults.

And second, the man is a Republican and a conservative, so to me that also means he is a hypocrite already. The fact that he voted for the Defense of Marriage Act and against the anti discrimination for sexual orientation (while trying to pick up someone in the men's room) just PROVES he is a hypocrite. The Republicans worry about embroyos and fetus' and those whose brains are mush.. unless their brains are mush because of an injury caused by this stupid war.. and they start stupid wars that kill our young men and women and Iraq's young men and women and the not so young and... plus they believe in not helping those less fortunate than themselves and (let's face it) aren't we all less fortunate than the rich, middle-aged white guys who are running this country? Yes, I am rambling, but none of it makes sense, so I didn't even try to force some sense into it.

So the point that I wanted to make (and I am not sure that I have seen this exact point made in other blogs) is that the man is a complete, total and absolute MORON. He needs to resign from office and move to an island somewhere where there is no possibility that he will infect others with his stupidity. Was he hitting on a cop in that airport bathroom?* Was he railroaded? Are the lefties out to get him? Does anyone really care?

Hey, Larry, you PLEAD guilty. You never hired a lawyer. Did you even tell your family? What is your degree in, underwater basket weaving? How long have you been in the Senate? While I understand that (according to Cheney) there are now four branches of government, Congress is still supposed to be the legislative branch... that means they make laws, Larry. Do you have any understanding of what that means?

Mrs. Gump said, "Stupid is as stupid does." That seems to be the correct quote in speaking of the (hopefully) former Senator Larry Craig.

Be glad you don't live in MN where Craig was caught & charged. This story seems to be taking up a lot of space/air on the local news here.

My favorite response was a letter to the editor in which the writer said that Craig was caught by the same laws his bigotry helped create. I got a good chuckle out of that one.

That is a good one. I didn't think about you being up there in the middle of the storm. What a waste of time and money on this story when people are starving in this and other countries.

It's not even a matter of who is sleeping with whom (probably grammatically incorrect), or what sort of relationships you have. They slime was cruising for anonymous sex.

Family values, yes indeedy.

Obviously he was or he would not have plead guilty. But, frankly, if I were on a jury, I would not vote guilty just on a couple of foot taps and other gestures.

This guy is just an absolute moron. And he has reproduced.
