Well, THIS Should Be Entertaining

Craig's About-Face Worries GOP Colleagues:

Sen. Larry E. Craig yesterday launched a campaign to save his political career, dismaying fellow Republicans with his determination to stay in the Senate if he successfully overturns his guilty plea, made after he was arrested in a sex sting in an airport men's room.

The Idaho lawmaker called Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), telling him that he plans to finish his term through 2008 if he manages to have the charges against him dismissed by Sept. 30. Meanwhile, his attorneys sought to quash an ethics committee investigation, prompting a rare public rebuff from the panel's leadership, who said that their probe will continue.

America loves a good trainwreck, and this one promises to be a five-alarmer.

Who wants popcorn?

P.S: Personally, I've got no damn sympathy for the twisted little freak. He lives in the world he and his buddies would love to see us all live in: a world where being different in your sexuality drives you into the dark corners and the merest intimation of gayness is enough to cost you your job.

How you like your "family values" party now, bitch?

I'm just hoping he drags some of his "friends" out of the closet on his way down. He's surely not the only anti-gay Senator who plays the "tap tap wink wink" routine.

Can I steal this line?

All I've got to say is:


You plead guilty, you lose your seat.
None of this stupid waffling crap.

But Dusty's right: this is the world Craig wants everyone to live in, so now he should have to pay the piper.

If there wasn't all this societal sexual repression crap this wouldn't have happened in the first place.
