Time Wounds Another Heel

Cementhead Idaho Senator Republican Larry Craig bought the farm today with perhaps one of the stupidest statements ever read to the public. The GOP has got to be furious about the development. Put another notch in the wall for the blue wave. If the Republicans don’t toast him before the next election, the Democrats will. He is finished. Idaho is bright red, but the GOP will lose this seat if they don’t take him out.

Add "I am not gay" (Craig, 2007) to "I am not a crook" (Nixon, 1974) to "I am no longer gay" (Haggard, 2006) to "They will, in fact, greet us as liberators" (Cheney, 2003). I could keep going.

Craig was part of the Romney campaign, "Knowing Governor Mitt Romney is knowing somebody who first and foremost has very strong family values. That's something I grew up with and believe in."

Romney tossed him in the trash at once.

The Republicans need to do the same if they want to retain the seat.

Look at Larry holding that mike.

I think that homosexual republicans feel the need to stay closeted says more about the party than them. I have to wonder though, how many other congressmen are openely gay? The only one I can think of is former congressman Jim Kolbe.

The Rep's are just killing themselves one at a time. What a hoot. This guy Craig should get an award. Now you KNOW the media is going to start combing his record and talking to his elementary school friends looking for that one nugget. Stay tuned.
Woo hoo.

You forgot "I did not have sexual relations with THAT woman"...it goes both ways.

He does need to resign right away...and you're correct, the Right is pissed about this joker. Idaho could elect a moderate Dem that will make sure they get to keep their guns. GOP needs to be smart and get this dude gone.

Here is Slate's video re-enactment...I don't want to post it on my blog...but you may...just click on get the code & paste it in blogger's html.
