The Republicans are once again showing Larry Craig some love.
The toilet trolling senator will be allowed to continue work on twenty appropriation bills, a move Craig says proves his invaluability to the Senate and thus justifies his resignation reversal:
Right now we are very much working to keep everything in place, and I’m pleased about the progress. I feel like I’m being effective and I’ll continue to work.
The news also suggests that the GOP’s letting up on their political pressure against Craig, who many hoped would step down after the world heard of his toe-tapping ways.
Now it’s up to the Ethics Committee to decide Craig’s fate. We’re not holding our breath.
