Wait...people are DEFENDING Sen. Larry Craig?

Yeah, that's the guy who can't keep his feet or his "wide stance" to himself in public restrooms. Believe it or not, some bloggers in Virginia are actually defending him instead of doing their party a favor by condemning him and demanding the moral superiority they all claim they possess during election season, but cannot follow through with after the votes are cast.

Just to be clear, here is a snapshot of Craig's 4 biggest mistakes:
Mistake No. 1: June 11, Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) entered a bathroom stall in the Minneapolis airport and tapped his foot in a "signal often used by persons communicating a desire to engage in sexual conduct." This bathroom in particular was a well known place for men to solicit sex from other men, and the signals in which to do so were known in intimate circles (and all over the web). The reason the police were present was because this was not a secret, and they were hoping to crack down on those engaging in indecent behavior. Believe me, in my opinion, there is absolutely nothing wrong with a man having sex with a man or a woman having sex with a woman, but there is something distinctly wrong with ANYONE having sex with ANYONE ELSE in a public bathroom. That's called lewd conduct, and we have laws against it for a reason, regardless of party affiliation.

Mistake No. 2:
What Senator Larry Craig (R-Idaho) did next is absolutely inconceivable and very telling of the way a power hungry misogynist in politics handles day to day business. Senator Larry Craig (R-Idaho), after being caught soliciting sex from the stranger in the stall next to him in a public bathroom, handed the arresting officer his business card and asked, "What do you think about that?" I mean, WOW. Talk about power hungry and attempt to bribery, eh? If you can read that and not find it despicable, I don't think you can be helped, as you have been so taken by party hackery, you simply have crossed to the insane side of politics.

Mistake No. 3:
Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) then decided to tell the police that his foot touched the undercover officer's foot in the next stall because he has "a wide stance when going to the bathroom".

Oh. My. GOD. Seriously? I mean, SERIOUSLY? Wow. Just...wow. That's like a line out of a comedy movie. A GOOD comedy movie, too. Ouch. Bad, bad move, Larry.

Mistake No. 4:
Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) then proceeded to plead guilty on Aug. 8 to disorderly conduct, and told nobody -- not even a lawyer or his wife -- before the news broke Monday and Craig's spokesman chalked it up to a "he said/he said misunderstanding."

Um, that is absolutely not a misunderstanding. That's called hoping for a cover-up or a pardon of sorts. PERIOD.
I posted it before, and I will post it again today. You simply cannot ignore the actions of Larry Craig; sorry. This is only the beginning of the sex scandals that will make their public debut in the coming months. Good luck at the polls; I suspect certain people will need it more than others.

A fembers of the ODBA are defending him by claiming he didn't actually do anything that was arrest worthy and hey; he isn't Clinton or Kennedy, so his actions don't matter.

Look quick, it's bound to be removed.

Why would he plead guilty to disorderly conduct if he didn't do anything wrong? I just don't see the logic in that, whether or not he 'regrets' it now...

I've seen some of the ODBAers attempting to spin this to defend Craig. I think their tactic is to hope they can distract their readers' attention from the embarassment of Craig's scandal by dredging up Bill Clinton's actions from - what ten years ago?

But if the shoe were on the other foot, wouldn't they be the first to point out that two wrongs don't make a right?

Their biggest problem, however, in trying to exonerate their guy by discrediting Clinton or Kennedy is that Democrats generally don't loudly condemn other peoples' lifestyles or attempt to tell them how to live or what to do in the privacy of their own bedrooms.

Anyway, those bloggers' double standard is showing big time.
