Well, that does it! Despite my best efforts to spin him into being a really top-notch pick as John McCain's running mate, Larry Craig has taken himself completely off of my radar screen. Why the abrupt change of attitude? He and Louisiana Senator David Vitter, along with seven other Republican senators, have reintroduced the Federal Marriage Amendment.

Yep, as Andrew Sullivan puts it, Craig's, own marriage is based on a lie, and prostitute-client Vitter isn't exactly a poster child for "one man, one woman" (at one time) either. The measure doesn't stand a proverbial snowball's chance of getting a 2/3 vote in both Houses (much less perhaps even a hearing in the middle of the summer of an election year), but it's probably lame-duck Larry's last chance to legislatively say "I'm not gay, I've never been gay", and add: "and even if I were I wouldn't want to be in a gay marriage......especially in the Minneapolis airport during the Republican Convention."

But Don, just like our Beloved President's speech before the Israel Knesset, he is the gift that just keeps giving!

Larry Craig and David Vitter protecting the sanctity of marriage is rather like Mick Jagger and Keith Richards promoting abstinence only education.
