Larry Craig

2007-09-06 13:44:13.08225+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

I've largely avoided getting involved in the Larry Craig thing, the Republican Senator from Idaho who was busted apparently for, eventually, peeping under toilet stalls. He pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor, then it got out in the press and he claimed it was all a mistake, he was going to resign, now he may not. On the one hand I'm happy to see him taken down as a moral hypocrite and general slimeball. On the other hand, if the society were as aggressive in cracking down on heterosexual cruising as it is on homosexual cruising, we'd die off in a generation.

U Dream Of Janie says most of what I wanted to say, and Susie Bright talks about The Sexual Self-Interest of the Cuckolded Wife, and the evils that sexual repression push on, in this case, women.

  1. How quick the right wing was to hang the guy without a trial!
  2. It's too bad that lying to congress and to the American citizenry, and going to war sans justification aren't as reprehensible as sticking your foot too far under the divider!!

The people of Idaho should call for his resignation, not because he's gay, but because he can't come up with a decent lie, which is essential if he's going to be an effective Senator.

Expecting us to believe a United States Senator was leaning down to pick up a piece of toilet paper from the floor of a public restroom stall is like assuming the Attorney General isn't involved the firing of U.S. attorneys.

Hmmm..... maybe Craig should submit a resume....
