bathroom_stall.jpgWell, this whole incident with Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, has me pulled in two different directions (which may have been just the thing he was looking for himself… but I digress).

First of all, Larry, you’re busted! Admit it! You were looking for sex with a male stranger in a bathroom! Drop the excuses… “My stance is wide.” (I nearly laughed out loud on that one!). “I was signaling that I needed toilet paper.” “I told the police I was guilty to get the whole thing over with.” “I’m not gay. Never have been gay.” Never will be gay. Never. Never. Never. Gay. Gay. Gay. His rambling makes the Miss Teen USA contestant who stumbled all over her answer look like the next featured speaker at Toastmasters!

Second, as revolting as I personally find the thought of 1) having sex in a a) public b) bathroom c) with a stranger d) who is supposedly taking a crap at the moment of proposition; 2) making up the most lame-ass excuses and outright denials about his actions, and 3) getting it on the down low in private while working against gay people in public life; the point is, he could be doing a lot worse things…

• He could be lying to the American public about why we’re in Iraq.
• He could be taking kickbacks from corporations who have only the $ bottom line as their moral arbiter.
• He could be bilking taxpayers out of their hard-earned money with pork projects.
• He could be ____________ (fill in the blank with your biggest gripe about dirty politicians).

And he may very well be guilty of all of that. I have no idea what his political record is other than his very conservative moves against the gay/lesbian community.

Yes, he should be made to leave office, for, if the allegations are true, then like Clinton, he is definitely guilty of VERY BAD judgment, breaking the law, lying, probably cheating on his wife in the past, etc. But personally, I think they need to pack off along with him, all of the other politicians who are guilty of far WORSE ethical and moral violations than these sexual ones they pounce all over.

Oh, but wait, would there be anyone left in Washington?!

  1. Unfortunately, I believe Washington would be empty! While I agree that wat he did was gross and questionable (and doesn’t speak well against hypocrisy), I don’t believe what he did had as much affect on the US population as some of the shenanigans that some of these other politicians pull off. If they (the other senators, representatives, etc.) focused the same energy and attention towards the politicians that broke other laws and campaign promises, it might be scary what turned up.

  2. I agree. I don’t think we’d have any politicians left. There is something about stepping over people with all their friends’ and family’s money to get elected that brings out even more demons in them. Plus, I think most of them think they are above the law.

    I have an idea, let’s start paying politicians and professional athletes less and pay more to teachers and policemen! Then we can better educate our young (who turn into politicians and athletes) and fight crime better (against politicians and a lot of pro athletes). 🙂

  3. “Second, as revolting as I personally find the thought of 1) having sex in a a) public b) bathroom c) with a stranger d) who is supposedly taking a crap at the moment of proposition;”

    Ha, this cracked me up…particularly the part about taking a crap at the moment of proposition because i didn’t even think about that part. Not the cleanliest of transactions indeed. But truthfully i don’t give a rats arse about who politicians have sex with or where because as far as i know, they don’t give a crap (no pun intended) about who we’re having sex with and where. Leave the poor schmuck alone as far as whether or not he’s gay. If he broke a law, fine, if you’re just roasting him on the spit because he likes a little (or big?) man on the side, then the media are no better than him and his anti-gay legislations. It just makes for sensational reading and that’s all people care about because it makes them money and then the government folks get in an uproar because they’ve been embarassed by one of their own.

    All that to say, beware of someone tapping their foot three times next to you in airport stalls. Apparently you’ll get bent over either way 😉

  5. Ah, Republicans…so full of self-hate they have to pass laws to punish themselves. The officer who busted him is really young and cute looking. Perhaps Sen. Craig took the Republican title of Chickenhawk literally.

    BTW, did y’all hear how he opened his “I’m not gay! Really!” press conference? “Thank you all very much for coming out today.” You’re welcome, Larry, and thank you for outing yourself.

  6. After reading it a second time, I caught the title of the blog – hahahaha!

    I TOTALLY agree that teachers and police and firefighters should be paid much more than they are today. Knowing what police and firefighters make, it’s a shame that we literally put our lives in their hands. They deserve much more!
