Peddling his ass or giving it away?

Sorry, but I have to climb on the Larry Craig bandwagon (oh, did I really say that? Ew, sorry again...)

I have a question. What are the police doing in the airport bathrooms looking for cruisers? I mean, come on, that's so 1950 and we're supposed to be a gay-friendly city. Don't we have better things to do with our Homeland Security budget? Aren't there bicyclists to beat up? (Gotta keep the blog on topic, dontchaknow)

I don't care if he's gay, that isn't a sin as far as I'm concerned, but if he's trolling for bathroom sex and voting for "Family Values" anti-gay legislation then you are a hypocritical piece of shit, sorry. You deserve to have your trysts trotted out in front of everyone through the media. I love the smell of Schadenfreude in the morning.

What is it with closeted, gay Republicans? Is the illicitness of the act such a turn on? Are you guys really getting your jollies like this? I'm fat and not happy about it, but I can accept it and I'm dealing with it. Why can't you? Why do you cultivate votes form that intolerant swamp of voters?

Speaking of intolerant, here's the Idaho Values Alliance saying what a wonderful guy Larry Craig is for his vote against Stem Cell Research, or, in their words, "S. 5, which would have forced taxpayers to fund life-destroying resource on human embryos." But that's not what's so interesting; here's what is truly amazing -- look at the first of the "Bonus Bytes":
One of the tragic characteristics of the homosexual lifestyle is its emphasis on anonymous sex and multiple sexual partners. It is a little-acknowledged secret that many active homosexuals will have more than 1,000 sex partners over the course of a lifetime (the average among heterosexuals is seven – still six more than we were designed for). This sordid fact of homosexual life surfaced yesterday in an AP article yesterday that reports on the number of arrests police have made for indecent exposure and public sex acts in the restrooms at Atlanta’s airport, the busiest in the world. The increased restroom patrols, begun to apprehend luggage thieves, instead uncovered a rash of sex crimes. Airport restrooms have become so popular that men looking for anonymous sexual trysts with other men have advertised their airport availability on Craigslist. One such ad was from a man saying he was stuck at the airport for three hours and was looking for “discreet, quick action.” (AP: Arrests Up in Atlanta Airport Restrooms)


So, he's cheating on his wife and now people are screaming for him to retire. What about Vitter? He cheated on his wife with a whore, yet there's no cry for his head? What, you just apologize and then it's over? Or is there something a little deeper running here?

Update: looks like the good people of the IVA have decided to pull the plug on ol' Larry. Talk about fair weather friends.

Larry is my senator, and I must say, I'm enjoying this to the fullest. Not because I'm hostile to gays - quite the opposite.

I'm loving this because Craig has long been considered one of the wise old men of the Idaho Republican Party. He's always served as an example of religious decorum - while voting for every mean-spirited piece of legislation to come down the pike.

This little episode tossed a grenade into the outhouse of one of the reddest, most reactionary states in the Union.

And I find it very delicious.

I love how this stuff unfolds -- get caught, deny, deny, deny, story snowballs, deny, get crushed by story, new evidence comes out, deny, more evidence comes out, teary confession, retirement.

It seems to me that the out-of-the-closet types often settle down with long-term partners. It's only closeted gay Republicans who seek the amorous affections of countless strangers in airport restrooms. When it comes to having upwards of 1000 casual gay sex partners, these Republicans know what they're talking about!

Ride your Bleriot down to Crosby Farms sometime. In the back parking lot, at any hour of the day, you will find half a dozen respectable-looking men in conservative sedans and pickup trucks, just sitting in their vehicles, for no apparent reason. If you believe the St Paul PD, the place is an attraction for those who seek anonymous homosexual encounters. I always wonder how many of these men go home to their wives and are otherwise "straight" and even hostile toward homosexuality and openly homosexual people.
