Why Larry Why?

This is gone from a humorous story about a hypocritical Senator that no one has ever heard of from a state that is has a low population to a story about a hypocritical Senator who wants to redo the past.

I guess the keyword here in this whole fiasco was "intend", as in I "intend to resign". Which means I want to stall out things as much as possible until the last possible gasp. I do not know for sure if it is again a conflict of his own personal life, or is it just someone trying to cling and not go out kicking and screaming. Of course, if he did not feel he was guilty of anything, he would not have signed off on a guilty plea for the misdemeanor of disorderly conduct. If you aren't guilty, then don't sign off on nothing.

I think Senator Spector is using this as a ploy to pull some power away from the family value Conservatives in his own party. If he stands up for Craig and he goes away anyway, no big deal. If he stands up for Craig and something worse comes out, including the possible comfirmation of homosexual activities from a Senator who has voted time and time against any kind of gay or lesbian rights laws, it weakens the conservative wing of his won party, a spot I bet there is part of Spector that he is annoyed he is associated with in the first place.

It was an interesting moment on Hardball tonight when Chris Matthews had the two sides of the story on debating, Senator Craig's attorney and a the Family Research Council, a Republican think tank. How often is it that a Conservative Senator and a Conservative think tank are actually not agreeing on an issue. And that is where the hilarity ensues.

Very nasty bad boy is a comment by Craig's that he made about someone else. I guess what goes around comes around to get you when you are a hypocritical Senator and now he has to eat those very words that refer to his own behavior. Resign, go away, get help and get out of the news as you are just one of nine other Republicains up on sex charges. This is the kind of news that make the coming election an easy choice and need for change from the nasty bad boy republicans. Your convention is in the same city that will make it a constant reminder of you.

"Republican think tank" Isn't that a contradiction in terms? :)

The whole thing has been an education for me. I never knew all of those secret hand signals and foot movements. America has learned valuable insight into the personal habits of a small portion of our population, and I always appreciate stuff like that.
It's those things that people won't talk about, and you wonder how it is learned or passed along.

Generally, it takes a crime (or perceived crime) to bring these things into the forefront.

As for Craig, there are plenty of other people who would like to have his job, so he should just step down and get on with his life rather than put up the good fight, because even if he wins, he loses.

Someone needs to tell him that real life, unlike video games, does not come with a "do over" option.
