"Thank you all very much for coming out today,"
"Thank you all very much for coming out today," Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho began his press conference yesterday.
Airport police previously had made numerous arrests in the men's restroom of the Northstar Crossing in the Lindbergh Terminal in connection with sexual activity.
My first thought of hearing about this was "Surprise surprise, yet another "family values" anti-gay crusader turns out to be not only gay, but engaging in practices that no self respecting gay person ever would."

Over five months, the Statesman examined rumors about Craig dating to his college days and his 1982 pre-emptive denial that he had sex with underage congressional pages."
More of Craigs known and largely suppressed sexual history @ Dailykos.
"To me, it's pretty obvious that every conservative anti-gay extremist is gay. If you're not gay, you don't sit around obsessing over gay sex. If you sit around obsessing about gay sex, then you're gay. It's that simple."

I know this is a HUGE deal. It has large political ramifications AND its exactly the kind of story the Corporate Media loves so it will play and play and play and play.
Which is exactly why I am already sick of it.
Initially I was pissed because they somehow kept a lid on it. The arrest stayed a secret for 2 1/2 months.
Then as I began to realize that this was going to be the news focus for the coming weeks to months I stopped caring.
Anyone care about the housing market dying? Or the stock market tanking? Or that mortage loan sharks getting bail out? Anyone remember Katrina? Walter Reed? Rove resigning? Gonzales? Afghanistan? Remember those miners?
Screw it... HERE is the REAL story to watch!!
