Well, it's finally official. Senator Larry Craig has stepped aside but I wasn't able to see if he had a wide stance behind the podium. There was some applause and cheers when he officially stated he was leaving the Senate.
He trotted his wife out again but this time had 2 of his 3 kids with him too as if to say, "See, I'm not gay. I couldn't be gay because I had sex with my wife at least three times and had offspring!!"
Craig and the national Republicans want this all to go away as soon as possible but this kind of hypocrisy will continue until they embrace the reality of sexual diversity and that sexual expression within the confines of the law is normal, natural and healthy.
It seems that the oral majority party, er, I mean the so-called MORAL majority party, the Republicans, are ashamed and afraid of their own sexuality. When you repress sexual urges then they tend to come out in dangerous ways because human sexuality is as necessary as any other bodily function. The problem with Republicans sexual repression is that they claim to be the party of moral superiority (whatever THAT means) and so when they inevitably sexually act out they have obvious hypocrisy and credibility problems.
They need to give up this "moral majority" crap and realize that sex happens and fighting against it is as absurd as trying to push back against a waterfall thinking you'll stop the flow. Give up the moral superiority complex and exploiting the peaceful, accepting religion of Jesus to back up your bigotry, holier-then-thou condemnation of sexual expression. Especially in regards to homosexuality. Hate is not a family value and your families are just as screwed and as dysfunctional as anyone else's.
In other words, get over yourselves and face the fact that you have weaknesses and urges like anyone else and maybe people will stop seeing you as hypocrites.
