Do as I say, not what I do in the washroom with other men.

Looky looky. Another one.

Conservative, Republican Senator Larry Craig has pleaded guilty for committing a lewd act in a mens bathroom stall.

This is what this man is known for:

He supported a federal constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, telling his colleagues that it was "important for us to stand up now and protect traditional marriage, which is under attack by a few unelected judges and litigious activists."

Craig also voted in favour of the Defence of Marriage Act, which denies federal recognition to same-sex marriages and prevents states from being forced to recognize the marriages of gay and lesbian couples legally performed in other states.

Craig has also opposed expanding the federal hate crimes law to cover offenses motivated by anti-gay bias and, voted against a bill that would have outlawed employment discrimination based on sexual orientation, which failed by a single vote in the Senate.

Now why would someone hate themselves so much? Maybe he's frightened that if he groped the wrong person he'd have to marry him. Is he just a man whore? Bitter because he was forced to marry a woman when he wanted a man? Is his life work just a way of trying to convince himself he's not gay?

Who cares. The old bigot will soon be gone. At least we had the opportunity to witness more conservative hypocrisy in action. What a bunch of assheads.

According to Roll Call, the arresting officer alleged that Craig lingered outside a rest room stall where the officer was sitting, then entered the stall next door and blocked the door with his luggage.

According to the arrest report cited by Roll Call, Craig tapped his right foot, which the officer said he recognized "as a signal used by persons wishing to engage in lewd conduct."

The report alleges Craig then touched the officer's foot with his foot and the senator "proceeded to swipe his hand under the stall divider several times," according to Roll Call.

At that point, he put his police identification down by the floor so Craig could see it and informed the senator that he was under arrest, before any sexual contact took place.

Some misunderstanding. Senator Craig even knows all the intricacies of bathroom stall sex, including the signals. I am surprised he wasn't wearing an armband signalling which position he likes or even have a bag of hankies to throw around. Unfortuantely for Mr Craig, the officer didn't have the common decency to even provide a reach around to make it all worthwhile.


Oh and if you are wondering, here is the tally so far! Jeez guys get a room!

Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, is under fire for his relationship with a contractor who more than doubled the size of Stevens' home.

Sen. David Vitter, R-La., has acknowledged that his phone number appeared in the records of a Washington-area business that reportedly was a prostitution front.

In 2006, a furor erupted when it became known that Mark Foley, then a Florida Republican congressman, had been sending sexually explicit messages to male congressional pages. In addition, some in the Republican congressional leadership knew about it and did nothing.

Oh and of Course I have to add Ted haggard, special religious advisor to George W. Bush, caught with a crack-head gay male prostitute and doing drugs. Talk about hardcore. Not a senator but played a role in his government.

Anyone else see a pattern here? If they were younger I'd gladly sit in on their cock-us meeting. Hey, nothing wrong with being a voyeur! Recommend this Post

Harpers fails Newfoundland victims of Chantal

No surprise here. Harper shows up for a photo op, tells everyone he's got them covered and then no money flows.

Catherine Newhook says she's disappointed with the politicians who visited her this month after tropical storm Chantal hit Newfoundland and Labrador.

After waiting for days, Newhook finally called Monday to inquire about assistance.

Adjusters visited the next day and the Newhooks were told damage to the house would be covered, as would rock and crushed stone for their driveway. But the family was devastated to learn the program won't pay for asphalt.

"Really, I think they should do a whole lot more," says Newhook, who estimates they suffered thousands of dollars damage.

She's now questioning why Harper visited at all.

No shit Catherine, I am still wondering why he is even our Prime Minister.

Here's a tip for the next group to get f**ked over by one of Harper's photo-ops. DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO THEM WHEN THEY SHOW UP. Don't make eye contact and don't say hi. They are like Jehovah's Witnesses, once they get in the door its all over.

Just turn your backs to him like he has already done to pretty damn near everyone in this country.

In the next election vote ABC.

Just the Tip of the Iceberg in Truro

On August 3, 2007, Truro Mayor (aka Bible thumping homophobe) refused to raise the Pride Flag, quoting scripture which says it goes against his beliefs, yet strangely he did not ban seafood or those of cloven hooves.

On Sunday August 12, 2007, Truro Councillor Raymond Tynes was subjected to racist slurs by white youths which apparently was not the first time he has to deal with this sort of thing.

This two stories do not bode well for this community, especially when your elected mayor is lumped into the same group as racist youth. It just looks really, really bad.

As I said about Herouxville, Quebec, it is best to get the hell out of dodge. This is symptomatic of a serious underbelly of hatred brewing and not much you can do about it but leave and watch the town slide into oblivion. As well who wants to deal with such pigs on a day to day basis?

When stories like this make news nationally, and internationally, its a safe bet they will be paying the price through loss of jobs and business. Who wants to locate a company in an area where their employees are subjected to homophobia, racism and general bigotry? Who wants to hire potential employees that will gum up the operations with human rights complaints left and right ? I know I'll be putting up my windows and locking my doors as I drive through that hick town for now on.

To hell with Truro. It'll be a nice picturesque ghost town or retirement town for old bigots. Maybe Suzanne at Big Blue Wave has already bought some waterfront property. Who knows.

Be sure to check back to read the racist, bigoted, and homophobic comments that will surely follow this post.
