RWC, you get the "R-S-P-E-C-T" award for the day, because you took the blame.

Peewee caused all this with his hate speach about alternative lifestyles.....and I called him on it so I guess I'm to blame because liberals can never take credit for their mistakes.

Rather cowardly as usual garr to leave just your blank name. That is about all you ever have to say anyway.

"Because Larry Craig is a pompous, pious liar -- with an entitlement problem. He perfectly embodies the hypocrisy of the Republican party."

I don't imagine it would take too much time to find a Democrat that is a "pompous, pious liar -- with an entitlement problem," do you?

Where should we begin?

PWPeterson began the comments with a reference to "two republicans in a Minneapolis airport bathroom."

It was a rather inglorious beginning, eh?

Yes, we never did have to worry about Barney Frank denying he is gay.

Now what about that congressional office influence in dealing with 33 parking tickets?

Isn't that hypocritical behavior? For even a Democrat?

Oh, there's no such thing as a hypocritical Democrat, is there? No, they're WAY too busy looking to Republicans' hypocrisy to notice their own.

All politicians are human, thus all politicians err.

And some are more human than others. ;-)

"The attempts to censure and expel Frank were led by Republican Larry Craig (whom Frank later criticized for hypocrisy after Craig's own arrest in 2007 for lewd conduct while soliciting gay sex in an airport bathroom). Despite the controversy, Frank won re-election in 1990 with 66 percent of the vote, and has won by larger margins until the 2010 Mid-term elections when Frank won by eleven points.

"Frank is known for his quick wit and rapid-fire speaking style. In one famous quip, he said he was unable to complete his review of the Starr Report detailing President Bill Clinton's relationship with Monica Lewinsky, complaining that it was "too much reading about heterosexual sex"."

"Amid calls for an investigation, Frank asked the House Ethics Committee to investigate his relationship "in order to ensure that the public record is clear." The Committee found no evidence that Frank had known of or been involved in the alleged illegal activity and dismissed all Gobie's more scandalous claims (WA Times had Gobie's story); they recommended a reprimand for Frank using his congressional office to fix 33 of Gobie's parking tickets and for misstatements of fact in a memorandum relating to Gobie's criminal probation record.[30] The House voted 408–18 to reprimand Frank."

A mere response...

"In 1985 (Rep. Barney) Frank was still closeted. That year he hired Steve Gobie, a male prostitute, for sex, and they became "more friends than sexual partners." Frank housed Gobie and hired him with personal funds as an aide, housekeeper and driver and paid for his attorney and court-ordered psychiatrist..."

Bring out whatever news stories you want!

Barney Frank didn't swear he wasn't gay -- nor has he ever held himself out as a religious conservative, tut tutting about the morals of others.

I was merely responding to a question put directly to me.

Why the fuss about Sen. Craig?

Should we bring out news stories about the former Rep. Barney Frank et al?

This adolescent titillation is nonsense.

So are libs only this intolerant of gay men, or only of gay Republican men?

The policeman who arrested Larry Craig said he peered through a crack in a restroom stall door for two minutes and made gestures suggesting to the officer he wanted to engage in "lewd conduct."

Craig's blue eyes were clearly visible through the crack in the door, Sgt. Dave Karsnia wrote in the report he filed.

"Craig would look down at his hands, fidget with his fingers, and then look through the crack into my stall again," Karsnia wrote in the arrest report.

After he was taken for questioning, the police report says, Craig pulled out a Senate business card and asked the officer: "What do you think of that?"

In all, 5 men came forward to confirm that they and Larry Craig "did the gay thing" in men's rooms.

Larry Craig, of course, denied each allegation -- but considering the FACT that he was finally busted by police for that very thing -- most folks took a wide stance on Craig's denials.

So we zipped up and then followed each other to the second restroom in Union Station, where we began the same process. And had a -- I also performed ******* for a very, very short amount of time, as that restroom became busy as well. At that point, we both zipped up and left and went on our separate ways... There's no doubt in my mind that that's who it was."

I like how the libs try to justify their homophobia by bringing up Larry Craig, obviously we all knew what was being implied by PeeWee.......... But it is still a homophobic joke and a true sign of his feelings about alternative lifestyles.

"The American people already know that Bill Clinton is a bad boy, a naughty boy. I'm going to speak out for the citizens of my state who in the majority think that Bill Clinton is probably even a nasty, bad, naughty boy."
