Republican Senator Craig-Idaho-Arrested in Public Restroom

What is it about public restrooms and Republican “social conservatives”?  Craig was/is Romney’s guy in the western region.  I wonder how this will go over with all those evangelicals Romney has been sucking up to? 

 

Roll Call, citing the report, said Sgt. Dave Karsnia made the arrest after an encounter in which he was seated in a stall next to a stall occupied by Craig. Karsnia described Craig tapping his foot, which Karsnia said he “recognized as a signal used by persons wishing to engage in lewd conduct.”

 

 

Roll Call quoted the Aug. 8 police report as saying that Craig had handed the arresting officer a business card that identified him as a member of the Senate.“What do you think about that?” Craig is alleged to have said, according to the report.Last fall, Craig called allegations from a gay-rights activist that he’s had homosexual relationships “completely ridiculous.”Mike Rogers, who bills himself as a gay activist blogger, published the allegations on his Web site, http://www.blogactive.com, in October 2006.

Too Much YouTube??

Its interesting that the posts I felt most strongly about lately in getting going at this new address were mostly YouTube clips of topics I felt were interesting.

 

Darcy Burner is a good example.  She almost made it the last time in WA-08.  Bush is in her district today at a fundraiser for the incumbent and the blogs have gotten together to raise as much or more money than Bush.  Last night they had $75,000.00 pledged and were hoping to make $100,000.00 by tonight.  The idea is to make Bush radioactive; i.e., if he comes to help a Repug, it will guarantee lots of money for the Dem.

UPDATE: The Netroots campaign raised $108,400.00!!

Send Bush a Message

Monday at 3:00PM, PST, watch live Town Hall supporting Darcy Burner (WA-08). See the video below about joining a few friends in sending a message to Bush. 

Darcy Burner (WA-08)

If I lived in her district, I would definitely vote for Darcy Burner.  She speaks like a real person-not a triangulating pol. 

Fox Attacks!!
