Larry Craig Part 3, and I should wrap it up about here

In answer to the question of what the difference between David Vitter’s solicitation of prostitution and Larry Craig’s proposition of bathroom sex is such that Republicans call for the ouster of the latter — as well strip of committee assignments, sort of the signal that they would like him to leave , and plan an Ethics Committee investigation, as though there could possibly be anything to investigate– and move along quickly for the former…

Well, there is the simple electoral calculation that Idaho has a Republican governor and Louisiana has a Democratic governor, their temporary appointees thus falling accordingly.  Then there is the electoral calculations of “THE GAY”, even as the broad swath of Americans are falling into the line that Dan Savage laid down which is us heterosexuals are shifting our attitudes from “Wow, those Gays are weird” to “Wow, those closeted Gays are weird.”

There is the simple matter that Larry Craig violated the second half of the old “whatever consenting adults choose to do in the privacy of [fill in the blank]”, which our dear friend David Vitter avoided by simply laying down money at a brothel.  And Larry Craig’s pay scale is such that he could do better than a public restroom.  (But maybe the money is in quickie-hotels — 15 minutes, top, across the street from airports.)

The one chink in the armor is the issue of hypocrisy, and there it is a little tricky to measure various levels.  David Vitter’s raison d etre fell into line behind “Family Values”.  Larry Craig’s raison d etre did/ does not.  Which is not to say that their voting records do not match up, and beyond which Craig, like Vitter came out strongly for the Impeachment of Bill Clinton.  In the rules I have seen for political “Gay outing”, which lays the hypocrisy angle as the highest reason, Craig falls from the “Ted Haggard” standard to a level just below — perhaps half a level, in consideration of his absolute insistence that he is not one of “The Gay” which stretches back over two decades.
