Senator Craig isn’t Gay, He Just Solicits for Gay Sex?

Why am I not amazed that yet another anti gay, might be gay Republican is going down in burning hot pink flames? For the record Senator Larry Craig claims to not be gay. Sorry Larry, the math just will not add up for you given the current guilty plea. If it walks like a duck, quacks likes a duck, chances are that it isn’t a Bison.

I don’t have any issues with gays or lesbians. Some of my and my families closest friends live their lives as they choose and I’m proud to be their friend. I do however have an issue with a homophobe like soon to be former Republican Senator Larry Craig that claims not to be gay and uses his office to push an anti gay and lesbian agenda. Meanwhile in the dark closet of his own mind he sort of likes the idea of being gay but can’t admit it because he is a proud Republican. Either that or his wife will kick his fuchsia tinted ass? I’m not sure where to go with that last statement.

Over at the Boston Herald they have this great piece from the Associated Press on Larry’s dilema…

Craig says he did nothing wrong, isn’t gay; GOP leaders call for investigation

BOISE, Idaho - Under fire from leaders of his own party, Idaho Sen. Larry Craig on Tuesday said the only thing he had done wrong was to plead guilty after a complaint of lewd conduct in a men’s room. He declared, "I am not gay. I never have been gay."

"I did nothing wrong at the Minneapolis airport," he said at a news conference with his wife, Suzanne, at his side.

Craig’s defiant news conference came as Senate Republican leaders in Washington called for an ethics committee review into his involvement in a police sting operation this summer in the airport men’s room.

"In the meantime, the leadership is examining other aspects of the case to see if additional action is required," Sen. Mitch McConnell and other top GOP lawmakers said in a written statement.


Do you think that maybe they are going to throw Larry a coming out of the closet party or a going away party? This one is going to be a close call. There’s more to this story…

Craig entered his plea several weeks after an undercover police officer in the Minneapolis arrested him and issued a complaint that said the three-term senator had engaged in actions "often used by persons communicating a desire to engage in sexual conduct."


I’m sure this was a misunderstanding… Umm, then again I might be lying to push my stubbornly liberal and left wing agenda to take over the world. I think I might send that in to Rush Limbaugh just for laughs… Again! There’s more…

The conservative three-term senator, who has represented Idaho in Congress for more than a quarter-century, is up for re-election next year. He said he would announce next month whether he would run again.

Craig, who has voted against gay marriage, finds his political future in doubt in the wake of the charges, which have drawn national attention.

Craig, 62, has faced rumors about his sexuality since the 1980s, but allegations that he had engaged in gay sex have never been substantiated. Craig has denied the assertions, which he calls ridiculous.

The scandal had already taken a political toll. On Monday, Craig resigned from a prominent role with Republican Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign. He had been one of Romney’s top Senate supporters, serving as a liaison for the campaign since February.

This is horrible! Mitt Romney must be devastated at losing his “Not Gay” Senator in his campaign support team. I’m sure the clock didn’t tick a second when Mitt took that resignation and filed it under accepted. No gays at Mitt R Us is safe once more from all that gay stuff and drapes that co-ordinate with the room. I can hear the sigh of relief at one of Mitt’s mansions now.

I’m not sure what the big deal is but apparently you can not be a card carrying Republican and also be gay. I guess it sends the wrong message to the party. Does that make them the party of exclusion? All the signs from Mitt and his crew says so, then again all the Senators Republican so called friends are bailing on him too.
One thing that is certain in this whole mess is that the Senator did enter a guilty plea and that in itself is the whole story. The other certain point is that somewhere in Idaho the Republican party is having a sissy fit trying to find a manly man to take their Larry’s place. Did I write that out loud?

No offense intended to the gay or lesbian community. Republicans just seem to be full of hypocrisy these days and thank God above for that! Just walk away Larry, you are a disgrace to your party and your state. Hypocrisy is not the path traveled with great rewards.

Other folks talking about this issue...
