The more Larry Craig talks, the less sympathetic I am. Here he is with Matt Lauer:
Larry Craig: I call it gladiator politics. Put the politician in the arena and beat him until he’s dead and let the crowd cheer. And that’s really tragic because we’ve watched this and certainly with the gay community, a fair number of them have become very militant.
Larry Craig, during the Clinton years;
It’s a bad boy Bill Clinton, you’re a naughty boy. The American people already know that Bill Clinton is a bad boy, a naughty boy, I’m going to speak out for the citizens of my state who in the majority think that Bill Clinton is probably even a nasty, bad, naughty boy.
You know, if Larry Craig had not spent his entire career publicly and loudly moralizing and legislating about people’s personal behavior, and if he didn’t belong to the party that has made destroying people a sport, he might have a point about gladiator politics.
And does anyone have a picture of Roberta Muldoon from the movie version of the World According to Garp?

In case you were wondering how screwed up I am and what goes on inside my twisted head, every time I have thought about this incident, this is the image I get when I think of Larry Craig:
You be the judge.
