Now, I’m not typically one to protest when a scandal takes down a Republican candidate. But I just want it to be clear that Senator Larry Craig from Idaho is being asked to resign because he’s gay.

You can’t actually say, “You should resign because you’re gay” anymore, so everyone talks about ‘lewd’ and illegal behavior, but that’s all code for the things those people do, isn’t it?

What’s tragic about all of this is that, like Foley, Craig has spent a fair amount of his career supporting anti-gay legislation just to prove he’s got no sympathy for the “homosexual agenda.”
