Please please please... Someone who he has hooked up with PLEASE come forward!
Well, that certainly settles it.
Remember kids, take a small stance when having a BM in a public rest room, lest you get misinterpreted.
is he going to come with a certificate that proves that he is in fact 100% hetero?
i'm just saying the media won't believe him until his 'overseers' issue paperwork on the matter
and make sure that when reaching for the TP that your wedding band does not show beneath the divider
The sad part is, he probably really believes that he isn't "gay".
He got it up for a girl and had a few children!
The bathroom thing, although true, may to him just register as a thrill or fetish or something...not GAY. Not flag flying, lithp speaking, GAY!
That plus the power of denial....
Larry, quick! Go shoot your truck with a shotgun. That's the only way out of this.
Craig has no biological children. His wife had three kids when they married and he adopted.
Do who I say, not who I do.
Not great for the R's. It would've been much better if he would've resigned and they could've moved on. Now they've got a fight on their hands and a white knuckler to see if he runs for re-election. This dude has been playing this game his whole life and he thinks he can beat it if he just raises the stakes.
Innnnnnnnnnnte-desting. Thanks for the information
It's typical republican: Fredo is doing a great job, "Heckuva job, Brownie," Bush is smart, we're going to win in Iraq, trying to get a blowjob in an airport bathroom doesn't make you gay (nor does snorting meth and sucking cock, for that matter . . .)
It took a blowjob to take Clinton down. I will take one for the team and happily blow any and all closeted republicans (no matter how fat and icky) and get a picture, to help the cause.
It turns out that Idaho's governor is named C.L. "Butch" Otter.
Is Idaho secretly the gayest state in the union?
Larry Craig to rehab in 3...2...1...
It hurts so much to laugh so hard.
Dare I say, tradition is not the story of what happened but more so what is SUPPOSED to have happened. If you want to beleive a lie so desperately, than maybe it is true ...
I don't think he's gay - he's just one of millions of straight men who occasionally have sex with men in public restrooms. Perhaps a new category is in order. Seems like "stray" would do fine.
Is it wrong of me to have peed a little with excitement?
This is actually a good development, as he'll continue to hang around and be another albatross around the Republicans' necks. God knows those crazy, hypocritical, hateful, pathological liars are getting booted out of office if not out of the closet.
The Idaho Gov would have appointed even more psycho and right-wing if Craig had resigned.
just like the working class london strays in nathan barley...
@12... interesting thought. Who would you blow (or, who would you have blown)if it meant they would get taken down politically?
Santorum? W? Cheney? God. I guess I would do W and Cheney, if it meant they would resign (particulary if it had been, say, in 2001-02). Jesus. I feel dirty now. Blech...
"Is Idaho secretly the gayest state in the union?"
Shaped the way it is, can there be any doubt?
I'd blow W if I was sure it would result in him being removed from office. Americans would sing my praises for years. They would build statues of me.
Maybe I'm just looking for things to be angry about... but what's pissed me off the MOST is the apparent 'accepted truth' that the bad thing about all of this is that he's GAY.
And that's NOT it!! Being gay is not evil. Lying to your spouse and to your constituents may be evil. Seeking sex in a public restroom shows a serious lack of common sense for a congressman.
Oh, geez - I could almost forgive him if he hadn't stood up so strongly AGAINST gay rights...
@16: Win. I'm using that.
we had a reaction to "bullcrap" back in my old hometown of lewiston: we'd yell, "my foot!"
Doesn't he know that the reason jeebus created Glory Holes is to avoid the need for a wide stance.
Is this closet case up for re erection?
@1... i think three people did come forward. they did so anonymously, however, so... ???
and the other Senator from Idaho is:
oh, and i've known many a gay man who loves to suck off a "stray" man... there is something about it that some find more exciting. strays are necessary for this.
The ignorant goi and their leaders make things too easy for us! Distracted goi listen to media blather about an incident in an Idaho restroom while their sons and daughters die in a war to make Israel safer.
It is Tikkum Olam fill up newspaper columns with this kind of nonsense while a war explodes in the Middle East. Anything to distract the goi and their shiksa.
The Kabbalah teaches us that man-woman gay-straight all flows from the ONENESS of Keter. As Jews we may experience all of sexuality and sensuality as a fluid continuum and move beyond rigidity towards the dissonance that is the song of creation.
But the ignorant goi must be forced to cling to their man-woman, gay-straight binary. Any man who had sex with another man is completely gay. No other possibility can be allowed for the goi.
Wow. I'm still marveling over the word "stray." Awesome word selection there, LG.
He takes a narrrow stance on immigration and firm stance against abortion, and strong stance on defense but it is the wide stance for which he will be remembered.
Fully agree with everyone's praise for LG's coinage of "stray" in #16. Hey Savage, you listening? I think this word may be this year's "santorum" to describe Haggard, Craig, et. al.
And he supports a big tent, too!
Tucker Carlson just did a despicable routine on MSNBC where he claimed that the GOP has always embraced gay men like Larry Craig and that this incident is proof that the Democrats are viciously homophobic and hypocrites. WTF?! Tucker Carlson is one twisted slimebag.
@13: Is Butch a he or a she?
I bet Tucker Carlson is gay.
I keep saying, at every major GOP event, we need queers walking around with hidden cameras implanted in their "W Forever!" buttons. We could empty out the GOP in a matter of days.
It's time to announce zero-tolerance for gay-hating Republicans who themselves are gay.
No more closets.
Maybe the "I'm not gay" goes along with an unspoken "...but I am bisexual." And couldn't an openly bi politician truly bridge the gap and bring everyone together?
I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because some people out there in our nation don't have a wide stance like such as.
Ha ha... the news scroll at the bottom of the graphic says... "in hindsight".
Just one question:
How does one assume a "wide stance" while on the pot with one's trousers around one's ankles?
Or do Republicans just shit their drawers as a matter of course?
Well, I guess poor old Larry just can't be cured of his "life choice" attraction to the same sex! As if he hasn't had enough warnings and wake up calls. It's just a shame he can't just "come out" and embrace his own sexual orientation instead bashing everyone else for not following the extreme religious right-wing Republican agenda.
Sounds like he married his poor ole wife (a single mom at the time) because he was under "gay scrutiny" back in the 1980's. Talk about another Rock Hudson closet case story! I feel bad for her, she has SUCH blinders on...
As for the rest of you Repubs, "People who live in glass houses, should NOT throw stones!" Your entire party is going to lose in 2008 because of the comedies of incompetence and hypocracy such as this...
It's PAY BACK time, Bushy!
Sorry, this doesn't really matter. Sure, the people who elected him may not be happy with him, but they will continue electing republicans BECAUSE THEY STILL REALLY REALLY WANT TO BELIEVE THE LIES.
The best we can get is fucking hilarious laugh!
I'm a Minnesotan, and the local news is reporting airport personnel noting that it is a specific bathroom at MSP that is used for these hook ups.
Now, MSP is a big place. I wonder what gate Craig arrived in and departed from, and whether either of those were near the bathroom in question. If it's way out of the way, how would he explain that?
Fuckin' hypocrite! Goddamn this is getting old. Come out already and be suprised at home many will support you. Stop hiding--people always find out.
I am a flaming radical progressive liberal, and I'm gonna stick up for an elected Republican here. Leave him alone! Sure, he did a misdemeanor, but what he did shouldn't be illegal!
I'm happy to see the Repubs trip all over their stupid rules and slide down into oblivion, but I'm not gonna call for this guy's resignation.
Who cares if he's gay? is that wrong? I don't understand why Democrats have been so vocal on this issue. Do we only like gay Democrats? Sheesh. We don't need a Senate ethics committee for THIS.
What I think the man has done wrong is act Republican all his life and hide being gay.
I heard his most recent comments. "I did not have sexual relations with that man, Mr. Lewinsky.
It's okay in the Oval office, but not the Airport in Minneapolis.
Another thing, I've driven home with too much alcohol in my system in past. Because I've done something wrong, doesn't mean I can't vote FOR drunk driving laws. Craig is gay. He also believes his behavior is wrong.
Sorry Will in Seattle, we don't hate you. You can boof to your hearts delight. We just disapprove. You hate us.
I have not been impressed with Larry Craig since his days as a barber shop quartet senator. He was on the today show years ago travelling with other senators to political functions singing in this group. It made me mad that are state tax money was paying him to travel around and sing. He also lead the rally cry to impeach Clinton for his infidelity and immorality as craig put it. he has to be the biggest hypocrite ever.
@54; He is way up on the list, at any rate.
@53;You have admitted that you have driven home while too drunk to drive and that you might vote to enforce stricter laws against driving under the influence of alcohol. That is all well and good, but Larry Craig denies that he ever was gay, which makes him an incredibly bad man since he, apparently, intends to continue to vote against gay rights laws while continuing to be a closeted gay man pretending to be straight (a la Ted Haggard).
I'll be at Reagan National AIrport on Friday, Stall number 3, on the second leval. Wear stockings and bring some lube.
A stright felloe Senator
Anyone else remember the skit on the Ali G show where Bruno is asking that fundamentalist if was gay? "So there was this one time I had sex with my beautiful Brazillian boyfriend, and when I was all done, I wanted to have sex with him again. You think I might be gay?"
@44 - i think JJ parsed the Republicant speech for us. He's bi and a slut.
Well, that explains it!
"Santorum? W? Cheney? God. I guess I would do W and Cheney, if it meant they would resign (particulary if it had been, say, in 2001-02). Jesus. I feel dirty now. Blech..."
If it makes you feel better, I think I could blow a neo-con or two (maybe even Dubya) if it would save my country. I would make that sacrifice for America.
Dick Cheney is gay, that's how his daughter ended up a lesbian... George Bush is incompetent, that's how he ended up President!
Oh, he is straight alright...
Straight from one d*ck to the next.
Does anyone have a 'blue dress' (DNA)
Sen. Craig, you suck (literally). Not only do you sell out your constituents in support of amnesty for illegal aliens, you are also queer!!
Less than a year following his weird 1982 denial of sex with Congressional pages, the then 38-year old bachelor was married.
One thing I've never seen reported. There are websites that give 'suggestions' on finding sex with men. Where was this bathroom in the airport? Was it near his arrival or departure gates? Or did he have to go out of his way to find it?
Do you guys really condemn this guy because he's gay? What's with all the hate. So he's a hypocrite, but I don't see people flaming the senator for that, as much as the fact he might be homosexual.
Seriously, where is the base for this kind of jeering and hatred for being gay? :/ What is this the 50's? Get over it.
