camp stupidity

If your Washington world is awash with bad news then how do you go about deflecting some of that negative criticism to others? Of course, you find a fallout boy in the form of an uptight, homophobe gay Republican Senator - from Idaho! Why is it that the most ardent gay bashers alway turn out to be the most deeply closeted queers?

If Senator Craig hadn't pleaded guilty then it might be possible to believe that what he was really trying to say to the undercover policeman in the bathroom stall next to him at the Minneapolis airport was, "I would like to wash your sock", instead of what he must of said that got him arrested for pandering. It's so hard to be understood when you're talking out of both sides of your mouth.

Maybe the Senator isn't gay*, and who cares if he is, but voters in Idaho may look cautiously over their shoulder the next time they enter the voting booth.

*“I am not gay, I never have been gay,” Mr. Craig declared with his wife at his side. (Didn't Pastor Ted exclaim these same words after he was outed and wasn't his wife at his side?)
