Larry Craig like Luca Brazzi sleeps with the fishes...

The GOP leadership wasted no time in dispatching Sen Larry Craig. The three term Senator resigned yesterday after finding that all support, moral or political had dried up from his fellow Republicans. The White House and Sen Mitch McConnell the minority leader distanced themselves from him faster than you can say "gay republican". Sen McConnell went so far as to call his behavior "disgusting".

What is particularly interesting is that David Vitter is still in the Senate. Here is a guy who admitted to having sex with prostitutes - ie a clear felony. Craig on the other hand pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge for public lewdness. Why the double standard?

I think it ultimately comes down to the type of sex. Had Craig got caught soliciting heterosexual sex he would still be in the Senate. This is really the anti-gay streak in the GOP coming out rather than a sudden desire to act either ethically or morally.

its not just sex with Larry Craig...its the rank hypocrisy. The guy has been one of the most conservative when it comes to gay rights, gay marriage and marital fidelity.....he was very hard on Clinton during Monica gate?

who are you by the way?

Regarding his guilt....I dont know if he is really guilty or not. I heard the interrogation tape and it seemed like he was making up a story. Also as someone who has been peeing in public restrooms for over 35 years I cannot imagine going to a stall and spreading my legs so wide that it actually touches the foot of someone else in an adjoining stall. That is just strange....
