Loving it! Republican U.S. Senator Larry Craig caught doing the deed in an airport mens room. Think Bush will pardon him?


When Craig was arrested, police at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport were conducting a sting operation to investigate allegations of lewd conduct at the airport's main terminal.

According to the police reports, a man, later identified as Craig, kept watching the undercover police officer through a crack in the stall. Craig then entered the next-door stall and placed his luggage against the opening under the stall door.

"My experience has shown that individuals engaging in lewd conduct use their bags to block the view from the front of their stall," said the officer, Sgt. Dave Karsnia, in the report. "The presence of others did not seem to deter Craig as he moved his right foot so that it touched the side of my left foot which was within my stall area."

The report said Craig swiped his hand beneath the stall divider several times.

Leave it to self-loathing, destructive right wingers to villianize faggotry however they can! Evidently gays are only good for quick handjobs in toilets and don't deserve equal protection under the law.

Let's run down the voting record of Larry "I Am Not Gay" Craig:

- Voted YES on constitutional ban of same-sex marriage. (Jun 2006)

- Voted NO on adding sexual orientation to definition of hate crimes. (Jun 2000 and 2002)

- Voted YES on prohibiting same-sex marriage. (Sep 1996)

- Voted NO on prohibiting job discrimination by sexual orientation. (Sep 1996)
The bizarre thing about the whole case is that it WAS entrapment. Craig tapped his foot for crying out loud, hardly an action that threatens society. Another victim-less crime for the police to waste taxpayer money on while real crimes are being perpetrated. To make matters worse, this supposed "sting" operation, featuring cute trade as bait, happened at an airport of all places, a setting where surely more serious security issues abound. It's been depressing to watch talk show hosts demonize cruising and listen to pundits like Tucker Carlson brag about gay bashing someone who supposedly propositioned him in a DC bathroom.

Of course it's impossible to muster a shred of sympathy for Craig, a despicable and vile Benedict Arnold if ever there was one. His portrayal of gays as debased sex fiends has now proven successful in ways I'm sure he'd never imagined. The destruction of his career and exposure of his private life is a just reward for having spent decades making the private lives of gays and lesbians into campaign issues. And in true conservative fashion, the Republicans wasted no time in roasting one of their most loyal soldiers over a bed of hot coals -- Mitt Romney being the first to backstab, despite the aid his presidential campaign received from Craig. The hypocrisy at the center of Craig's tabloid crash-and-burn recalls Gingrich and Henry Hyde during the Clinton impeachment years, hiding mistresses in their past while excoriating a twice-elected president for lying about receiving a blowjob. The difference here is that Craig now bears a big "G" burned into his backside ... in GOP quarters the ultimate scarlet letter. Thus, Craig finds no defenders among his colleagues.

In the end closeted public figures may take away from this scandal the need to live their lives in a more authentic, honest way.

I agree Lex but the really outrageous thing is why gay men have sex in public bathrooms in the first place. The heterosexual world condemed gay sex for so long and made it illegal, thereby driving gay men into the closet and into the dark backrooms and secret places where we could meet. There were no gay church socials or dating services or public community meetings where gay people could meet and socialize like the straight world around them. We were doomed to cruise street corners and public bathrooms and porno movie theaters thereby making us the sexual outlaws that entire generations of gay men became. The entire act of hidden sex acts became eroticized and accepted by us as the normal thing to do. Even in these conscience times we live in where gay is a household word and gay rights are taken for granted by many, where millions march each year since 1969 in gay pride parades where we are seem on television, where we have openly gay and out celebrities to speak for us, there is still no real equality amoung the sexual preferences of gay, lesbian, transgendered and bisexual people. We are still looked upon as criminals and perverted diviants by the straight moral majority and even the average straight folk from middle America. The very idea and nerve of homos to even think that we are equal to the straight world with gay marriages and adoption of children is considered an outrage by most of the straight world. It will be a long time before the world is really an equal place to live. Look how long it has been since racism was the rule of the day and how long since women were treated as equals to men and ask yourself if anything has really changed. Racism in America is still rampant and vile and particularly obvious amoung gay people as well. women still make less than men in the work force and gays are a joke to laugh at by most of the worlds standards. But I say, never give up. Fight your way to the top. Don't take no for an anwser and remember above all else that the creator who made us all made us equal. we all bleed the same, and we all die at the end of each life. But while we're here I say spit in the eye of the haters and fight for your rights. And most importantly vote, write letters and let the rulung bastards know how you feel. It ain't over till it's over and I for one intend to keep up the fight until the end. As for people like larry Craig, yes he is a homophobe and a bigot and yes he is guilty of hating gays and trying to keep them down but he is also a victim of the same culture that taught him to hide his true self and like mixed races from the past has tryed to "pass" just to get along in this world. I pity him, for his life is ruined and the mirror that he must find himself hidden in, will reveal to him and all those that he knows and loves, just what a wasted life such deception brings. Perhaps others who have suffered his fate will see themselves reflected in the drama of all of this and take a turn towards real freedom and happiness. Otherwise the circle turns and nothing changes and we are doomed to repeat the past.

I agree with Lex... even if Larry Craig is not gay and was entrapped, this is a beautiful karmic pay-back for his attacks on gay people and their rights all these years. I kind of hope he ISN'T gay. That will make his downfall all the more torturous!

And no Bobby, even if there seems to be acceptance, there isn't. You can't legislate intelligence. Acceptance and open-mindedness does not come automatically with the human genes.

A woman where I work, apparently hip and young, the other day said something about these 3 very out, very butch dykes who work at the agency, "Why do they have to put it in my face?" She's been married twice and is no paradigm of sexual maturity. I said, "Haven't you ever heard of human rights?" and she shut up.
It really is a hall of mirrors with so many second and third order reflections that out not just someone's possibly gay self but the institutionalized violence of law enforecement, the totally parochial image mill of politicians (the Romney two-cents worth is particularly revealing about self-fear and totaly mercenary ambitions)and what Bobby elaborated on -the sick nature of the overall social order past and present. The result, this burst of outright hysteria.

The scapegoat was taught not to be truthful and honest by the society that isn't truthful and honest.

Idaho has an openly lesbian publicly elected representative who of course has never had public identity conflicts. She would seem to be an example of how much more healthy it is not to weave a life trap for one's self.

Wow. Why are you writing all this politically correct stuff in Politically Incorrect? Shouldn't y'all head over to the Opposition Report or something? This is the forum for less. Less government, less taxes, less big social reform (can't you just leave folks be?)Ironically, that does give you one "more", "MORE FREEDOM!" Oh yes, more money too. If you earned it, you should own it bitch.

Anyway, for those of you who haven't noticed, the economy is booming, we haven't had a major islamo-fascist attack on our soil since 9/11 and my hockey team is 4-0 as of tonight. Stop complaining and go work on your slap shot. It's hockey season!!!
Oh those republicans and their sexual antics!

Another GOP Closet Case Caught with Panties Down
Washington State Representative Richard Curtis, an anti-gay Republican, got more than he bargained for when he engaged hooker Cody Castagna, 26, when they met at the Hollywood Erotic Boutique in Spokane on October 26.
KXLY reported that after being seen seen wearing women's lingerie in the sex video store and having oral sex with another guy, Curtis agreed to meet Castagna for a $1,000 bareback tryst at the Davenport Tower where, police say, they engaged in anal sex before Curtis konked out.

Castagna is then alleged to have taken some cell phone pictures of the politician and stolen his wallet, later trying to extort him lest he be exposed to the public and his wife and kids. Castagna, who has a long criminal record, claims he was only holding the wallet to secure his fee.

After police nabbed Castagna's bag man in a sting, they went back with Curtis to his hotel room to collect evidence. The police report reads: "I asked Curtis what physical evidence would be in the hotel room which would link the suspect to the hotel room. Curtis pointed out a Propel fitness water bottle in the garbage, a condom wrapper in the garbage, and a used condom in the garbage. I photographed the room and items prior to their collection. I also collected the sheets and pillowcases from the bed.
"While I was collecting evidence I saw a plastic sack which contained a light grey length of nylon rope, a plastic doctor's stethoscope, and other items I could not immediately identify. Curtis told me they had nothing to do with the sex act and that the suspect had not handled them. Curtis said he did not want to show me those items in the sack."

Curtis tried out the "I am not gay" line with The Columbian newspaper on Monday. He later told police he was drugged and didn't remember anything that happened.
"Anyone with a bizarre sexual orientation can claim protection under the terms of [the Employment Non-Discrimination Act] ENDA. Any person who is a heterosexual, bisexual, or homosexual under ENDA can also engage in a variety of sexual orientations and bizarre behaviors." - The Traditional Values Coalition

"ENDA -- which would restrict religious freedom and open the door to excessive litigation -- is modeled closely after state employment non-discrimination laws currently being misused by activist judges to impose same-sex marriage and civil union laws on states." - U.S. House of Representatives Republican leader John Boehner (R-OHIO), describing the proposed federal ban on workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation.
Lex has plenty to be thankful for: Good health, good looks and the commen sense to know that the Bush administration is made up of a bunch of greedy turds who hate everyone who is different then them. As for peace, wouldn't it be nice if all the troops came home from this stupid liars war and George Bush was impeached. THEN we'd have some peace.
Darla, it's no surprise you admire Ann Coulter so much. You're pretty much cut from the same cloth. You just like provoking people. That seems to be your only goal. I mean, you are on this message board of mostly progressive people. You know no one agrees with your ... let's be gentle and call them nazi fascist ideas... yet you continue to post them just to see what sort of reaction you get. You are the transvestite Ann Coulter. Happy? I hope you are happy when your Republican "friends" have you on line for the gas chamber. I hope you are right in front of me on line, I want to see you the look on your face as you step in to take a "shower".

"I'm afraid to take mine
out of the box."

"What's this about a glass

"This is not the kind of squeeze doll I grew up playing with!"
--Dick Cheney

"My friends, it will have no effect on me.
I don't crack under pressure."
--John McCain

"I like a woman
with a firm grip."
--Arnold Swartzenegger
One of the enduring mysteries of the Bush Administration is why after 9/11 it never truly beefed up the U.S. military, why it tried to fight the war against Islamic fanaticism on the cheap. Our troops have performed heroically, despite repeated tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Clearly many of them are paying the price of those repeated deployments in unnecessarily strained family issues. Those in the Reserves and National Guard are also paying a price in repeated absences from their civilian jobs.

The Democrats would make the Bush drawdown even more severe. Thankfully John McCain, a former career military man who currently has a son in the Marines and another attending the U.S. Naval Academy, won't make such a catastrophic mistake.
