Larry Craig Can Come Tap His Foot …

in my bathroom any time he wants. I’ll promise I won’t try to accuse him of soliciting gay sex (or give him any either, in case he might, you know, actually swing that way). Countertop’s makes me feel sheepish that I didn’t have more faith.

    All I know is that, if tapping your foot in a bathroom stall is grounds for arrest, I’m screwed. The only time I truly sit still is when I’m sleeping, and I’m not even certain I stop fidgeting then either. Granted, I’m not sure which would truly be more disturbing to me: having some strange guy offer sex because I was fidgeting in a stall, or being arrested.

    I asked, in comments in other blogs, where the support for Sen Craig was at the time.
    To deafening silence, I might add.

    He didn’t need to add to his pro-2A resume at that time, and it took yet another overt act on our behalf for folks to finally wake up and realize that he’s still a friend of ours.

    I’m still not happy with Craig over the whole restroom incident, but nor am I happy with the police practice that nabbed him. He shouldn’t have plead guilty. But none of that ever changed the fact that the Senator is a great friend of the second amendment.

    I retract what I said after the incredibly ham-handed reaction (that he should resign on grounds of mismanaging this incident).

    Good on Senator Craig.

    I had no problem with Craig, even if he was soliciting sex, for tapping his foot. My problem with him was how much of a stalwart could he be at defending his constituents’ if he wouldn’t defend himself?

    It seems the answer is that he is better at his duty to others than to himself. I applaud him. Though at the time I did doubt his proclivity to do said duty because of his failure to stand for himself.

    I thought (but doen’t know) the reason he plead guilty was to “make it go away”. The same way people do not fight speeding tickets they don’t deserve. It is more hassle to fight the court than to pay the fine.

    Craig wanted to end the issue before it got into the big newspapers. Of course, it was all over the internet by that time, so pleading out had the opposite effect.

    If anyone knows otherwise, let us know.
