Several readers (well, my partner at least) have asked me if I think there is any truth to the rumor that Idaho Senator Larry Craig, target of my recent speculation concerning his becoming John McCain's running mate, is undergoing accelerated training at Cape Canveral for launch to the International Space Station in the next few days.
The reason? The main toilet on the ISS is continuing to fail, and NASA thinks maybe Larry's own experience in the Minneapolis airport last year might just help them resolve this growing mess.
My answer: I seriously doubt it will happen. Sources close to Craig say that one close encounter with the shit hitting the fan was enough. Given that, I'll continue to sit on the story.
