The Only Thing More Odious Than A Homosexual Hypocrite Is A Homosexual Hypocrite In Denial

Hypocrisy is the homage vice pays to virtue.Francois de La Rochefoucauld

With the Echoing words, “I am not gay, I never have been gay,” the only thing Larry Craig left out was, “I did not ever intend to be gay.” He could have left himself some “wiggle room.”

I think perhaps it is his “intent” to be gay that will eventually lead to his retirement. How such a smug hypocrite can deny his tendencies and stonewall through what appears to the layman as pretty crude behavior with so little outrage at having been “stung” is beyond comprehension. Taking more than two months to consider his guilty plea before signing it, he showed a calculated effort to make it all go away. To overlook the fact that such a culpable Senator could possibly be what he seems is denial at its worst. Forget the fact that his GOP is imploding from his stupidity. He actually seems to believe his lie. He is unable to come to grips with his prevarication and what he seems to hate most about himself because he has fought against homosexuality his entire conservative, political career. The American people can forgive a lot including homosexuality. They have a much harder time with liars, hypocrites and assholes in denial.

If you need to give him the benefit of the doubt, just say he’s stupid. In any case the people of Idaho deserve better. Who needs a stupid senator?

There are three things in the world that deserve no mercy, hypocrisy, fraud, and tyranny.
—Frederick William Robertson

My theory is that after some debate Craig initially concluded or was advised that the mere accusation of hanky panky in the men's room would spell his downfall as a classically conservative Western Republican; thus, just fuck it, confess, and get it over with. Then, with the support of colleagues like Arlen Specter he decided that maybe if he just denies the hell out of it he might still have a shot of saving his career. But not if he admits it and apologizes, because many of his Republican colleagues treat gays (especially those who blow each other in public restrooms) like kryptonite to please their constituencies.

I should also mention that Craig's voice constitutes even more evidence against his claims of heterosexuality.
