The worst toilet in Minneapolis

by Capt Fogg

Frankly I had forgotten about Barney Frank, the Democratic Congressman from Massachusetts, until the few remaining Republican apologists willing to attempt the usual accusatory remission of the sins of their fellows, resurrected a twenty year old story about a gay friend of Frank who was found to be running an escort service out of Franks' apartment when he was not home. Upon investigation, the House Ethics Committee found no evidence that Frank had known of or been involved in this activity but he was censured in Congress for having associated with a male prostitute.

Frank is openly gay and usually wins re-election in Massachusetts's fourth congressional district by landslides of various magnitudes, but the comparison with Larry Craig, the man who made a career out of preaching family values, opposing civil rights for gay people and making remarks about "dirty, nasty" Bill Clinton; the man who was caught soliciting gay sex in a men's toilet, just smells worse than any public toilet in any third world country I've ever been in.

It's true that Republicans are tripping over their own wingtips while fleeing Craig's vicinity, but there are holdouts. Glenn McCoy, the political cartoonist whose scurrilous scribblings regularly appear in the New York Times, was quick to reply to the scandal by showing two donkeys, one telling the other, in response to the scandal to "make sure Barney Frank wasn't in the next stall."

Real humor always contains a nucleus of truth, otherwise it's just a smiling villain, ugliness with a foul grin. That's the kind of humor McCoy specializes in; the grotesque, perverted and dishonest humor designed for sewer dwelling troglodytes who would rather dredge something out of a cesspool and smear it on an undeserving victim rather than admit to any failing, any fault, any guilt, any shame or any hypocrisy.

Two things about this Craig saga that make it plain to me the hypocritical jerk deserves everything he gets because he's a liar. One is that he never chose to fight this charge as any man would who just went to a bathroom for the usual reasons. And honestly, has anyone who has ever been in a public restroom and seen some probable toilet paper on the floor decided to actually pick it up?

I also have a feeling there will be people appearing with more stories about Craig - like Clinton's "bimbo explosion."

I agree nolo, I don't care what he does on his own time, but when he blatantly lies to an officer, when he's made a career lecturing about morals and values and about "dirty, nasty" Bill Clinton, he does deserve what he gets. He just doesn't seem to understand that "it's the hypocrisy, stupid"

The Barney Frank story was dredged out of mothballs by some cogs on the FOX ferret wheel, (Hannity did) when, Mark Foley(D-Fl), made headlines. You can bet it will be resorted to again and again as the Repo closet opens ever wider.
Instead of being forced by the Repos to resign from congress the Dems might think about extending a full pardon and invitation to salvegable offenders to join the Demo party - as long as they make a full act of contrition for ever having been a Repo in the first place.
Converts usually exhibit the most fervor. e.g. Reagan, Lieberman.
Just a thought.
