If You Wish To Distance Yourself, Assume A Wide Stance

Hey, remember when Larry "I Am Not Gay, I Never Have Been Gay" Craig said he would resign for the betterment of his party? And then he said he'd stick around, and try to see if he could beat his guilty plea?

Well, guess who failed his appeal. And guess who still isn't budging.

While I understand this issue is probably petty by itself, it's a sign of a greater problem: the capacity to accept responsibility for one's own actions is a rare, rare thing in the GOP. About a week after the Craig story first broke, Today did a story on it and other Republican scandals. Who did they have on to talk about them? Why, none other than Tom DeLay, himself currently facing prosecution for graft. And the first thing out of his mouth is about how the Democrats are just as guilty, and that great boogeyman, the Liberal Media (TM), is persuading the people otherwise.

All I'm saying is, I hope Craig's refusal to step down-- and the long-ass list of other scandals and fuck-ups-- gets plastered everywhere in the run-up to election season.
