A lot has been written in both the mainstream and LGBTQ media concerning Idaho Republican Senator Larry Craig, and given his choice to remain in the Senate and try to reverse his guilty plea in Minnesota. We watched Matt Lauer's interview with him and his wife the other night and the commentary which followed, including fellow Bilerico contributor Mike Rogers whose website has been instrumental in exposing the hypocrisy of Craig and other examples of hypocrisy among anti-gay politicians.
I could jump in more and engage in the jokes about toe tapping, toilet paper retrieval, or go on and on about the double standards involved, restroom sting operations, and the like. But at some point saturation occurs. The only thing I would like to know, and haven't been able to find, is how wide that Minneapolis restroom stall really is, so I can do my own calculations concerning how wide a sitting wide stance has to be. If any reader has that dimension, please share it with me.
As to commentary about the Lauer-Craig interview and the situation generally, here is what I believe to be a great set of observations by Andrew Sullivan. I couldn't express my feelings any better than he does on Larry Craig's own inconvenient truth.
