Senator Larry Craig (R-ID) Press Conference
Here’s the Larry Craig press conference today, wherein he explains that although he plead guilty to a crime, he definitely did not commit that crime, and most importantly, HE IS NOT GAY. It’s an interesting statment, to say the least, but that’s what happens when you fight to demonize or disenfranchise the very thing you secretly are (or ARE NOT). If homosexuals could live openly and happily as homosexuals, there’d be a lot less action at the Minneapolis airport. I guess.
I’m all for exposing GOP anti-gay hypocrisy, and appreciate the two or three per year pace we’ve been on of late. But I guess I just don’t know that what Larry Craig did in that restroom was what I would consider a “crime”.
Pay attention to the very last part of the clip. Somebody shouts out, “So what if you were gay?”, which I think cuts to the heart of the matter.
Also pay attention to the very beginning of his opening statement. This guy’s a heckler’s dream.
