Ok, so I hope ya’ll aren’t offended by dead baby jokes. If so, apologies!
So, I guess Larry Craig is now going to retain his Senate seat… maybe? If he can get his guilty plea reversed? Alrighty then. This whole case is just getting so strange, I’m not sure what to think anymore.
Do I think Craig should be forced out of the Senate? Well, no. This is, after all, a misdemeanor crime that has absolutely nothing to do with his job performance. And if the Republican leadership is ok with David Vitter buying sex from women, they should be able to put aside whatever Craig likes to do with men in restrooms.
On the other hand, it’s hard to feel very sympathetic for Craig, just given his overwhelming hypocrisy and deceptiveness on the whole issue. So in the end, what do I think? I’m not really sure…
In other news, Bill Nye the Science Guy got booed in Waco for suggesting that the moon reflects the light of the sun, rather than producing its own light. Apparently this contradicts a passage in Genesis, which suggests that the moon is a light source in and of itself. For shame, Bill Nye! For shame.
