Whether it should be or not, it appears to be a crime to solicit sex at MSP. And Craig did plead guilty.

A crime, even a misdemeanor, is public record and he is a public official, so I think the news has the right, perhaps even the obligation to report it.

Idahoans can then vote how they choose.

But mostly this is what goes around comes around. Larry Craig to Tim Russert in 1999:

"It's a, 'Bad boy, Bill Clinton. You're a naughty boy.' The American people already know that Bill Clinton is a bad boy, a naughty boy.

"I'm going to speak out for the citizens of my state, who in the majority think that Bill Clinton is probably even a nasty, bad, naughty boy."

Just because I'd like to have a country to come home to someday, I find it encouraging that the mainstream media are reporting on the fact that social conservatives, too, are "lying hypocrites."

Call me irresponsible...

It's good to know that American law enforcement is focused on the real threat lurking in the country's airports.

If only Mohammad Atta had paused for a blow-job before boarding his flight, the Twin Towers might still be standing.

I was mistaken. Craig was charged and plead guilty to disorderly conduct, nothing sex related. That does seem like a particularly weak and discriminatory charge. I agree with you Tom.

I was listening to NPR today, and they interviewed an Idahoan newspaperman whose paper, at first, refused to run allegations of his homosexual behavior. However, when more credible evidence surfaced, they did run a story. Still, he acknowledged it's a he said/he said situation. The reporter came across as remarkably balanced and responsible--a rarity in today's news world.

The senator still maintains that he is not homosexual. However, now that this has come to a head (pardon the phrase), said newspaperman said that it is unlikely that Senator Craig would run again, and might even resign--but he remains defiant.

My prediction of his resignation may have been intemperate.

Ken,

Given this latest development, it appears that good ole lar might have been fantasizing while on Russert.

How about that? Craig did the right thing and resigned.

Now--how long until William "Cold Hard Cash" Jefferson resigns?
