“Larry Craig’s a hypocrite.” That’s what almost every newspaper in America seems to be saying about the toilet cruising Senator. In fact, our sources say “hypocrisy” will be the official word of fall.
Underlying their hurry to disown the senator, of course, is the party’s brutal agenda of trumpeting the gay-marriage issue. To the extent Senator Craig, a stalwart in the family values caucus, might morph into a blatant hypocrite before the voters’ eyes, he reflects on the party’s record in demonizing homosexuality. The rush to cast him out betrays the party’s intolerance, which is on display for the public in all of its ugliness. But it also betrays their political uneasiness as the next election approaches.
Ugly and uneasy? Yup, that about sums it up.
