Thank you to the Great Silent Moral Majority:

Now, this story is really really amazing to me on quite a few levels...
Idaho senator fined for lewd behavior at Minneapolis airport.

Now then... Where to begin on this one...

Well, lets start with some background...

I may have mentioned that part of my background was actually working on Capitol Hill for quite a few years (nothing special about that in the DC area, as EVERYONE seems to have had some connection to it at some point). I like to joke with people that the "Terrahists" tried twice to kill me (was in basement of Capitol during 9/11 for a meeting and worked basically next door to the "Daschle" anthrax delivery), so I'm freakin invincible and all...

But I digress...

Now, the biggest thing to me in this whole mess of Senator Craig's career, is that his sexuality was always one of those things that a significant amount of us "Hill Folk" understood to have been, pliable, at the very least... Not that how a person gets their rocks off is anything for me or anyone to judge (provided it is legal in more states than West Virginia), but the man is also part of that great supposed moral majority (we call it the GOP) that feels it is their job, nay, their DUTY to stop these "Evil Lifestyles" that people "Choose" to be a part of.

I just find it amazing that these stories continue to surface about these hypocrites and yet they are still able to captivate those bible thumping, anti-gay every election with promises of buying into this hate speech. There is a reason this country is secular and its laws governed by a supposed sense of free thinking, rather then the fundamentalist nonsense of these unfortunate voters...

Anyway, the REAL reason I had to write about Senator Craig, was that his office was actually next door to mine back in the day... After all, its all about me anyway, so deal.

Ah, but you forget, those people don't watch any news other then Faux News and Faux likely did not report this. Hell, they didn't even report Berto resigning.
