Sitting U.S. Senator, a Republican, would rather be on his knees?

"There they go again, Mommy," Ronnie Raygun might have said, although maybe not in view of his 11th Commandment, "Thou shalt not speak ill of a Republican."

This story from CNN of a sitting United States Senator, Larry Craig, allegedly attempting to solicit sex from strangers in an airport bathroom is one of the most shocking yet.

I mean we've all become accustomed to the Republican Party, conservatives, party of the religious right, party of denying equal rights to gays, and the party of "family values" having one leader after another either convicted of crimes, engaging in moral turpitude, and/or being so stupid in the handling of their personal lives that they should all be on parole under heavy supervision, but this takes the cake.

How a person of this stature could be so full of hatred for gays, while failing to recognize or acknowledge that he himself is gay, is and always will be a mystery to me. Everyone is entitled to live their life as they please, I have no problem with that, but this rises to a whole new level of hypocrisy

I pity the man, but the disgrace, shame, and level of hypocrisy revealed by his actions of seeking bathroom sex should be reported to the Ethics Committee of the Senate based upon his criminal conviction.

It's up to his constituents to decide if he is too duplicitous to remain in the Senate.
