Lamest sex scandal ever.
I just can't get too excited about Larry Craig being arrested for trying to get laid. I also can't exactly get behind the accusations of hypocrisy - sure, he's voted against gay rights, but he's also basically lived (and his career has died) by those unfair and bigoted rules so far. He's married to a woman, and he's going to lose his job because he's gay after all. He was in a position of enough power that he could make a double life work for decades, which isn't a luxury most of us can afford, and it reflects very poorly on his character that he didn't seem to notice or care. This is exactly what often goes very wrong when those who can buy their way into being exceptions make the rules, and I can only hope that Craig's crash and burn will make it clearer.
