Why I Love the Republicans
Okay, now that I have that out of my system...
Larry Craig, tight-assed Republican homophobe Senator from Idaho, was arrested in a Minneapolis airport men's room for soliciting sex from an undercover officer.
He pleaded guilty, but describes the incident as a "misunderstanding." Apparently, what sounded like "suck my dick" to the officer was really, "Hey, Buddy...can I borrow a pen?"
Or maybe he was really saying, "I'm a homophobic prick" or "give my cunt a lick" Whoops...no. Wrong restroom.
Is there anything more delightful and invigorating than when a huge public hypocrite gets handed his ass in public? And if it involves sex in any way, it's even better. But it's the hypocrisy that makes it so much fun, not the sex itself. Would it be anywhere near this delicious if it were Hugh Hefner soliciting sex? Nah. It would just be more of the same. Like Rush Limbaugh soliciting stupid callers or Michael Jackson soliciting 7 year old boys. Tedious.
The part that sticks to your ribs like Lori's excellent stew is the endless parade of "family values" Republicans caught with their hands in someone else's pants. In fact, lately it seems that the surest way to turn up gay is to try to put a stop to it in other people.
No matter what ever happens for the rest of my life, I can console myself by thinking, "At least I'm not Larry Craig."
Hey, Lori? Can I borrow a pen? Heh.
