He Really Loves Spuds

C000858.jpgIdaho Republican Senator Larry Craig is in all sorts of political hot water — enough to drown a couple of Vegas male prostitutes and top off a gin. Up for reelection next year, after three terms in the Senate, his campaign is in jeopardy after he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of lewd conduct in a men’s room at a Minneapolis airport. The arrest happened in June and, early this month, Craig paid a $500 fine, avoided a 10-day jail sentence, and the issue sort of disappeared. It’s hard to say why, as August is winding down, that someone decided to really make this a story — maybe in a slow news week, the media decided to catch up on some old scuttlebutt it missed, and went after Craig — who has a history of hating the gays and was a big supporter of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign (and Craig’s presumed/alleged/supposed gayness is political cooties to Romney’s presidential bid).

At any rate, the Associated Press, reporting on the story, is apparently way too goddamn classy to come right out and say what happened. AP writes that Craig’s sexuality has been in question since the 1980s, it writes that allegations he has engaged in gay sex have never been substantiated, and then it writes that his arrest “changes the dynamic.”

And, presumably, what the AP means by “changes the dynamic,” is that Craig’s political career is completely ruined because the man attempted to pull out his little Senator and have one of the bathroom’s constituents do a little oral gerrymandering on the man’s cock.

How’s that for classy?

And, apparently, all Republican Senators are now having sex in bathrooms.

Gerrymander-To divide a geographic area into voting districts in such a way as to give an unfair advantage to one party in an election.

Doesn't seem like something I'd want done anywhere near my cock, to be perfectly honest with you.

It's not the senator's desire to engage in anonymous sodomy that bothers me; it's his willingness to harass me while I'm trying to defecate. Please, Senator, this is the only ME time I get.

"And, presumably, what the AP means by “changes the dynamic,” is that Craig’s political career is completely ruined because the man attempted to pull out his little Senator and have one of the bathroom’s constituents do a little oral gerrymandering on the man’s cock."

THAT is why I read this blog.
