Hypocrisy in a toilet stall....

It is hard not to have some pity for Sen. Craig of Idaho, having to seek sex in an airport toilet. Ordinarily, his sexual activities and preferences (which apparently involve a "wide stance")should be of interest only to him and his wife.

That having been said, Craig is one of those hypocritical right-wingers who appeal to the worst instincts of homophobic Americans and who, I suspect, voted to impeach Bill Clinton over his hanky-panky.

Poetic justice? Hooked on one's own petard?

Did Phil really use the word "petard" on a public interest-oriented blog? Does this get us blocked by Net Nanny?

mainstream said...

I'll save all of you otherreaders a trip to dictionary.com

There were several definitions, I think this is the right one:

"hoist by or with one's own petard" - hurt, ruined, or destroyed by the very device or plot one had intended for another.

I believe it is a pike or spear of some kind. Purely Shakespearean PG.

I see he is now having second thoughts about his plea. Shoulda had a lawyer.

craig said...

Actually Phil, it is a medeival bomb. Somewhat of a crude grenade.
But excellent use of the phrase. Always looking for an opportune moment to use that one and it rarely comes up. Hats off to you.

I am not gay! Am not! Not!

Found it. Here is the link to the video Jay Leno ran last night on Craig talking about what a "naughty, naughty boy" Clinton was and how he should be impeached for Monica.

It is at Crooksandliars dot com if th e link expires.

Phil Cardarella said...

OK, so it turns out Craig was jealous of Monika?

Lucky the impeachment vote wasn't close or ...

Seriously, GOPers & Dems alike, no matter what kind of sleezy sex you may prefer, GET A ROOM. No one wants to watch, except the East German judge -- who is only going to give you a "3" no matter what!

Patriotic American said...

The best part of the press conference was that Craig began by thanking the press for "coming out" to cover it. Honest, I'm not making that up.

Porchpundit said...

I heard the same thing Patriotic, I could not believe it when he said it.

Phil Cardarella said...

Seriously: Anyone who knows anyone in Idaho, get them to send Craig letters of SUPPORT, urging him to stand & fight these baseless charges. Maybe we can keep this going until Idaho turns blue.

Porchpundit said...

At the very least Phil, we can hope that the Rs will have to fund a primary in a state where they have not had to spend a dime since 1974. Gee this is fun to watch!

Patriotic American said...

One interesting angle on all this, some GOP leaders are calling on Craig to resign yet none has ever called on David Vitter (R) of Louisiana to do the same. Earlier this year Vitter admitted to having visited prostitues as well. Of course, they were female prostitutes. The fine line of morality continues to blur for our friends on the right.

When I logged into the hotel, I was surprised that I had 1000 habbo credits which is unbelievable. I logged back in 5 minutes later to discover that all my habbo gold has been stolen. It gives you a virtual environment where you can use your imagination to create your own small cartoony world with your own habbo coins and interact with different people. For decorations you actually pay real monry to buy habbo gold in the range of $0.20, it may sound ridiculous. To use Hotel navigator you need to install cheap habbo credits of macromedia hockave player. There are two types of rooms, public and guest room.

After a job level, you get to pick ro zeny or skills associated with your job. Merchant is a class that can buy ragnarok zeny and necessary things at discounts. To get the agility and some iro zeny needed, you need to tweak your stats properly from the beginning. Then after you gain your first new and useful ragnarok online zeny or get your first new job. Throw a few cheap zeny and some spells and skills into the mix and you have RO battle system.
