The God-Forsaken Rockies

Not so chosen after all. Never mind belief in a supernatural entity keeping tabs on us all, it takes a particular arrogance to think that entity would care about the outcome of any given sporting event let alone backing a particular team. I don't really care about baseball but when the Rockies made it into the World Series, I wanted Boston in 4. Thank you, God Sox!

Hitting the Sauce Juice

Craig who, of course, never solicited sex in the MSP airport restroom, having lost the appeal to withdraw his guilty plea, tries another tack. Along the lines of OJ Simpson's If I Did It approach, Larry now wants us to believe (or rather a MN appeals court judge to swallow) that though he didn't do it, if he were to have done it, he should not have been able to plead guilty to it, because it would not have been a crime, as it would have represented free speech and therefore would have been protected by the Constitution.

Irony, along with hypocrisy, is alive and well in the Republican party. Craig who has acted as a rubber stamp for this administration while they have shred that same document by the use of torture, illegal wire-tapping, denial of habeas and the latest proposal of retroactive immunity for the criminally-inclined telecom corporations, thinks his solicitation of sex in a public bathroom should be a protected legal right.

We also learned that Craig had Mr. Martin (a criminal defense attorney) on retainer not merely before he entered his guilty plea but before he was even arrested.

While I never bought Craig's lie that he didn't consult an attorney before rendering his plea, the fact that he included that apparent lie in his formal (legal) filings with the court is tantamount to lying under oath. I categorize the lie as being apparent only in the sense that Larry hired an attorney to expressly defend him from the onslaught of the Idaho Statesman in efforts to out him as a nasty, naughty gay boy yet apparently was too embarrassed to let him in on his little arrest issue.

So, the saga continues and we can look forward to new allegations and other humiliating reports about the sad, pathetic, senator who refuses to admit he's no longer wanted by his party or his constituents. Maybe someday this will be made into an opera.

A Work Around

Larry LaRocco, while not trading places, has been familiarizing himself with the vocations of various people across the state in an effort to understand how best to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Here's lucky number 11:

Never mind the trolling-in-bathrooms-for-sex secret code, evidently closeted gay republican politicians have a special addendum of their own.

I mean what are the chances that this is merely a coinky dink?

Joey DiFatta, Republican Councilman from Nola evidently withdrew from a state senate campaign when reports of his lewd behavior were about to surface.

In one instance he got caught doing the wide-stance-toe-tapping shuffle in a restroom and in both instances, when asked for his identification, he "produced his commission from the St. Bernard Sheriff's Office identifying him as a captain". [my emphasis]

The attempted power play didn't work for him either. Too bad for these guys that nobody else seems to think they're quite as important as they think themselves to be.

It's Lying Time Again ...

Craig won't leave the senate

He said he'd leave if stuck with his guilty plea

The judge didn't buy his line and we didn't either

It's one more renege, back to DC and lying time [to the tune of It's Cying Time Again]
Get outta the boat, Larry.

I have to agree with Larry and Billy on one thing though, I was disappointed in Judge Porter's decision today.

Not, mind you, that is was wrong - but I was soooo looking forward to the jury's field trip to the men's room to see a demonstration on just how wide one's stance has to be to reach into the next stall. I know if I were the prosecutor, I would have insisted on it.

And the perp walk. We'll never get to see Larry to the wide stance perp walk.

Some days it just doesn't pay to get out of bed.
