(Above: Larry Craig seen in the middle of a "manwhich." Those vests scream gay).
Larry "Wide Stance" Craig's supporters are just as insane and ridiculous as the Senator himself. They are going to "boycott" the Minneapolis-Saint Paul Airport:
BATTLE GROUND, Wash. -- Supporters of Sen. Larry Craig with the American Land Rights Association are calling for a boycott of the Minneapolis-Saint Paul Airport. The association says the airport should apologize to Craig for what it calls "ambushing" the senator.
GOI: Larry Craig has supporters? Wow. So, Ambushed the Senator? Well, first off how did the police officer in the stall even know it was Senator Larry Craig until after he was arrested? All the officer saw before arresting the guy was the whites of his eyes and his "happy feet." Secondly, it doesn't matter if he was ambushed or not if he pled guilty to a crime!! The police ambush people all the time when they are running stings. What do these people think happens? That the police tip people off that they will be running a sting in that particular men's room between the hours of 9-5PM??? They don't give warning when they bust in to arrest a bail jumper or a drug dealer. The element of surprise is a basic tactic in police work. These people are shameless. They know how the police operate, after all they're the "law and order" crew!! They're all about tough law enforcement until they bust one of their own.
This airport ban is like that stupid ban on "French fries" in the House or Senate (I can't remember which) cafeteria after the French refused to co-operate in this stupid Iraq war. Remember? They wanted to rename them, "Freedom Fries?" Turns out the French were smart and those knee-jerk Republicans were wrong. How typically Republican.
So Fred Thompson is now officially in the race for the White House. He's already made a big mistake by not announcing his candidacy in New Hampshire and avoiding last night's debate there. The head of the New Hampshire Republican party, Fergus Cullen is rightly annoyed and had this to say about Thompson's absence:
"For him to then go on Jay Leno the same night and be trading jokes while other candidates are having a substantive discussion on issues is not going to be missed by New Hampshire voters."
Thompson doesn't get it that you can't get many delegate voters from the Jay Leno studio audience. It isn't wise to piss off, "Live Free or Die" New Hampshire voters.
Anyway, this was the worst kept secret ever. I personally think he waited too long with this absurdly shortened campaign season. I find it highly amusing that Thompson is both a lawyer AND an actor, both careerers that Republicans usually hate. Once again, hypocrisy raises it's ugly head.
He's trying to run as a "D.C. outsider" despite being in the legislature and a lobbyist for many years. His career in the Senate, however, was basically ineffectual and nothing to brag about. I wonder how many people will support him because they thought his character on "Law and Order" was "strong" and "decisive." This isn't a contest for the "Best Actor in a Drama" Emmy award people!!!
Do you know that Nixon called him "Dumb but friendly?" Yeah, you know, Republicans are suckers for a friendly southern accent and a "folksy," backwards demeanor. Not that all southern, folksy people are backwards but you get my drift. Who cares if he's dumb!! He folksy like me!! Yeah, I want someone in office as dumb as me so I can feel smart.
I predict that he might get a bump in the polls at first but will hit a wall once the luster of his "newness" fades. He ran an effective "shadow campaign" but that only works before so long and then you have to jump in and face the crucible like everyone else. I just don't think he has enough meat to satisfy a restless America.
If you want another wanna-be "John Wayne strong man" like Bush then by all means vote for this old windbag. If Thompson is a fresh face then you haven't heard of re-runs. He's a Bush re-run.
Did you see the debate last night on FOX with the Old White Man Party, er, Republican Party "candidates?" If not, well, you didn't miss anything. All they talked about was homosexuality, abortion and who has a bigger war dick. Sounds rather homo-erotic if you ask me, waving all those penis shaped missiles around at each other and all. No wonder they are so obsessed with homosexuality!!
You know who I found the most annoying? Senator Sam Brownback (speaking of gay, there's a gay porn star name for ya!! Brownback!!), spent most of the night just talking about "restoring the family." I just kept wondering, "How does he plan on enforcing that?" What, are we going to have the "family police" now that will pop in on you to make sure you're praying regularly and doing your best impersonation of the repressed, uber-fake 1950's style family???
