Larry Craig to Join Idaho Hall of Fame

October 7, 2007 at 6:05 am 5 comments

There are more than a few jokes that can be made about the news that Larry Craig is being inducted into the Idaho Hall of Fame. I am going to let the moment pass, but feel free to leave your own joke in the comment section.

From the New York Times:

Sen. Larry Craig has been chosen for induction into the Idaho Hall of Fame, despite his well-publicized arrest and guilty plea in an airport sex sting, officials said.

The nonprofit Idaho Hall of Fame Association picked Craig in March, months before he pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct after a Minneapolis airport police officer accused him of soliciting sex in the men’s restroom, the organization’s board chairman said.

”Larry Craig has made a great contribution to Idaho over the period of 20-some years. At the time it was considered, this other matter had not come up,” Harry Magnuson told The Spokesman-Review newspaper Saturday.

You know the Republican Party is going to be none too happy about Craig being honored in light of his “great contribution” to the further tarnishing of the party’s image. And, you know that they are going to try their best to have this honor squashed.

Since Craig said “no. no. no.” to resigning his Senate seat, the Republican leadership in the Senate have threatened him with an ethics investigation that will likely provide even more fodder for comedians and bloggers for months to come.

Word has come out (ha) that some Republican senators knew about Craig’s toe-tapping ways just as House Republicans and congressional staffers knew about Mark Foley’s interest in teenaged pages, but kept the issue in the closet (double ha!)

Stay tuned folks. There is much more to come in the ballad of the “not gay” toe-tapping Republican senator.

Much love to Jenniloon for the tip.

    From my particular section of the great state of I-DUH-ho (with great emphasis on the “DUH”) there will be no further comment on the situation at this particular time.

    LOL. I can understand. Maybe you can give a quick call to the HOF and ask them to stand strong and wide for Craig.
