Because I know that a certain Nunya will whine like a 12-year old girl if I don't 'say something' about this:
Senator Larry Craig: 'I am Not Gay'Oh my....what ever will the Republican Party do now? For shame on him....for shame!!
WASHINGTON — Denying that he did anything wrong and stating emphatically that "I am not gay," Sen. Larry Craig asked the people of Idaho on Tuesday to forgive him for being arrested two months ago in a police sting in a men's room at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
Craig, who was taken into custody on June 11 by a plainclothes officer investigating reports of lewd conduct in the restroom, said he pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge in an effort to suppress a story — pursued by his home-state newspaper — that he has secretly engaged in gay trysts.
Craig said the story has been following him for nearly a year.
"For eight months leading up to June 11th my family and I had been relentlessly and viciously harassed by the Idaho Statesman. If you saw the article today, you know why. Let me be clear: I am not gay. I never have been gay," Craig said in a news conference in his hometown of Boise.
Okay, that should satisfy the whiny demographic of my readers.....
ADDENDUM - Well, although I haven't been paying too much attention to how this has been playing out in the media it would seem that there's a lot of huff-N-puff happening about how Senator Craig should immediately resign because of the hypocrisy factor.
On one hand, those that are pushing for resignation due to Craig's stands on gay marriage and such have a point IMHO; for those that have read my stuff for the last few years know how I feel about hypocrisy. For those that haven't been reading my stuff for the last few years - get with the program and start reading ALL of the archived stuff.
On the other hand some of the finer points of the arrest, charges filed, charges dropped, and the final guilty plea should be considered. Like I said, I haven't been following this because....well, I really don't give a crap either way, but it apparently has been the hot-button topic on several talk radio shows.
I'll wrap up this addendum with what I initially thought when I heard about it on the Mark Levin Show while I was driving home from Vons about 20 minutes ago: if this U.S. Senator had been a Democrat or maybe even from the state of Massachusetts, how loudly would the drum beating be about
For those that are not part of the Barking Moonbat Brigade, you know what the ramifications would be if the subject of this 'scandal' had a 'D' next to their name......
