Larry Craig Should Resign over Iraq not Sex

By Circles Robinson

The vast majority of Democratic and Republican Party US Senators have voted hundreds of billions of dollars to murder hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. None resigned from office when the weapons of mass destruction pretext for the carnage proved a bold-faced lie.

Now, one of those senators, Larry Craig (R-ID), has just resigned over being caught allegedly soliciting oral sex in the Minneapolis airport.

Killing so many men, women and children and creating over a million refugees hadn’t posed any moral problems to the Senator, who boasted a 100-percent voting reliability rating from the powerful Christian Coalition.

However, accusations that the deeply religious gay hater was actually gay took the big smile off Sen. Craig’s face and he threw in the towel.

David Brooks wrote in Mexico’s La Jornada newspaper, “The issue isn’t whether Craig is gay or likes sex, the problem is that he is one of his parties leading anti-gay and anti-sex senators, claiming to be a bulwark of the family and conservative values.”

“I apologize for what I have caused. I am deeply sorry,” said Craig in a Boise press conference.

“These are serious times of war and of conflict. The people of Idaho deserve a senator who can devote 100 percent of his time and effort to the critical issues of our state and of our nation," said the Senator.

Craig announced he will step down effective September 30. Governor C.L. Otter, also a Republican, will announce a replacement for the last 16 months of Craig’s term.

It’s too bad the senator doesn’t feel any remorse for his and fellow US Senators real crimes.
