Republicans seem to be rather eager to throw Larry Craig under the bus for trying to get a hummer in a public restroom, which is only entirely appropriate. But they haven’t been so eager to distance themselves from Senator David Vitter, who seemed to enjoy soliciting prostitutes.
Surely some will claim it’s because Craig is gay. That might have something to do with it; I mean, we’re used to politicians and prostitutes, gay sex in public restrooms not so much. But I think it probably has more to do with the fact that Idaho has a Republican Governor, and Louisiana has a Democrat Governor. It’s funny how that works, isn’t it? I think if Idaho were run by a Democrat, Republicans would quickly become OK with whatever Senator Craig wants to insert into his mouth.
