  1. Larry says:

    Good scoop and in a more positive note, it will give time for the “stall crawler” to practice his bathroom craft!

  2. mbmdl says:

    Morning everyone! I’ve been listening to NPR while I get ready for work and they’re reporting the same thing about Craig. This weekend he will tender his resignation. Good riddance to this hypocrite.

  3. Larry says:

    Pat Buchanan is on MSNBC blasting the Republicans for turning on Craig. He is also defending Craig because Craig supposedly believes in “family values.”

    Maybe Buchanan is a “stall crawler” as well.

  4. TOM339 says:

    Am I the only one here who detects a subtext of antigay bigotry in the GOP’s reaction to Sen. Larry Craig’s behavior?

    While Craig broke the law and acted like a fool and a hypocrite, didn’t Sen. David Vitter do the very same — the only difference is Vitter visited a brothel and had sex with females. Craig tried to blow another man.

    Craig’s support among party leaders has all but disappeared. But when Vitter returned to the senate, Republican lawmakers gave him a standing-O.

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell called Craig’s conduct “unforgivable,” but was silent after Vitter admitted he used the services of the DC Madam.

    If the GOP outraged over the fact Craig broke the law soliciting sex in a public bathroom or are they embarrassed it was gay sex?

  5. JollyRoger says:

    Buchanan wouldn’t surprise me no matter what he was up to.

  6. dad2059 says:

    I agree with TOM339 and say they’re pissed that it was gay sex.

    I wonder if they would be just as “outraged” if it was a sixteen year old girl he tried to have sex with?

  7. Rachel says:

    Good insight, Tom. I think you hit the nail on the head. Mark Foley was forced to resign because he hit on boys. Now they’re trying to do the same to Craig. But, where is David Vitter? He’s da’ man to these old, fat GOP bastards.

  8. VicoDANIEL says:

    I am so loving the spectacle of the Republican party devouring Larry Craig for brunch. He’s damned hypocrite.

    Let’s review his voting record:

    In 1996: Voted YES on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) prohibiting same-sex marriage.

    In 2000: Voted NO on expanding hate crimes to include sexual orientation.

    In 2002: Voted NO on adding sexual orientation to definition of hate crimes.

    In 2002: Rated 25% by the ACLU, indicating an anti-civil rights voting record.

    In 2006: Voted YES on constitutional ban of same-sex marriage.

    But he likes man-on-man action in airport bathrooms? I say bury the son-of-a-bitch. Craig is dangerous self-hater and the sooner he’s gone, the better.

  9. Brigadoon says:

    Sorry but you won’t see any sympathy from me about Craig. This guy is just another in a long line of unholy, self-appointmented, moralizing wingers who say one thing to the camera and then act opposite behind closed doors. As far as I’m concerned Craig should be driven to drink Drano out of the bottle.

  10. Sex, Stalls, Craig & A Little Clarity

    The hub-bub of the alleged senatorial seeking sex in a bathroom stall has TalkShow Land and MediaLand abuzz with debate and discussion. It’s a hypocritical firestorm of fingerpointing, feigned disgust and self-righteousness.

    Today’s wire reports start like this:

    WASHINGTON, D.C.–The political career of Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho appears to be collapsing Wednesday as fellow Republicans called for his resignation and party leaders ousted him from is committee leadership posts amid the fallout over his arrest in a men’s room and his guilty plea in the case.

    I have no idea about Sen. Craig, his morality or misbehavior. I do know this: Sen. Craig is a working man facing an incredibly embarrassing Pivot Point in his life. Sometimes it takes these Moments of Truth to slap us into what we’re doing and not doing. These moments are often the start of a journey that helps us recognize our failures, weaknesses, addictions and self interests. I’ve met men–good men–who face drug addiction, sex addiction, porn addiction. They love the medicine they take. They hate it too. They struggle against it, fight it and often conquer it … for a while. Then they fail, they trip and get ensnared again.

    I know of a time when a man–married with kids–Mr. Suburbia and even a church leader–began a secret series of restroom rendezvous. Yes, sex with strangers. With men. You’d never know this could be happening. Then he got caught. And arrested. He almost lost everything–his profession, his marriage and his community reputation. That’s been more than a decade ago. And now, he’s sober and sincerely committed to his life, his wife, his God. He “works” against those inner voices–that addiction–every day. E-v-e-r-y d-a-y. He’s a good man. A godly man. And like Sen. Craig, people pointed fingers, accused, verbally accosted and shunned him.

    Here’s the bottom line. For Sen. Craig–for any man–whatever you face, there is hope. There is redemption. Even in a worldly sense. For the man facing the temptation, living secrets and facing addiction, it takes being True to yourself. Being honest. Admitting weakness. Then it takes Community to help restore and re-build. Restoration requires an inner circle of people who believe in you, love you, seek your best interests and allow you to ride the roller coaster of success and failure. It’s One Day At A Time.

    And for those of us who point fingers, accuse, attack and distance ourselves from those “disgusting” other people. Shame on us. Sen. McConnell, Sen. McCain, shame on you. Let’s look in the mirror. Let’s peek in the shadows of our closets. The Great Book says something about big wooden planks blinding our eyes to our own shortcomings and sin, so how can we cast stones at those whose sin has been headlined across America?

    If the truth be known, virtually every man–I’d bet one of every 2 men–have secrets that could sell a lot of newspapers and books.

    Do not be discouraged. Be true. Fight. Face it. Then forgive yourself. And begin your life over. Every day.

    I wish Craig wasn’t resigning.
    That allows the Republican gov to appoint his replacement, someone not sullied as Craig is and who probably can win re-election in ’08 as Craig probably couldn’t.
    He’s not being forced out for any morality reasons.
    It simply to get rid of him and keep the seat in Rep control.

  12. Larry says:

    I’m sure there will be another “stall crawler” lurking in the Senate before years end.

  13. DCVET says:

    Another scoop, Christopher! It’s all over the MSM and they’re reporting tomorrow is D-day.

    Or maybe R-day? “R” for resignation. What a disgrace this guy is. I don’t what happened to my compassion but Craig’s hypocrisy is like salt in a wound. Plus, he really dissed his wife. The poor woman stood by him while he was out and about trying to fellate cops in bathrooms.
