Like Senator Craig, I Deny That I Am Gay

Senator Larry Craig of Idaho denies that he is gay despite some evidence to the contrary.

I also deny that I am gay. The difference between myself and Senator Craig is that I’m telling the truth. Another difference is that if I were gay, I’d tell you.

The final difference is that no matter what, I would not use a career in so-called public service to deny other human beings the basic rights of our nation as Senator Craig has done with his career.

  1. Hey! Give Craig the benefit of the doubt; he may just be STUPID!

  2. Do you also deny that you hang out in the men’s room at the airport making lewd gestures at plain-clothed cops? Because I’m pretty sure he’s lying about that too.

    Craig on arrest day: “I’m guilty! Oh wait, I thought you meant was I guilty of NOT doing those things? Boy, this is gonna look bad…”

  3. Jonolan–Yes. He may not be so clever.

    OpEdna—I’ve made the statements I’m going to make about my conduct.

  4. Senator Craig is the kind of public official who is the worst sort of demagogue. He claims to be something he isn’t and I bet he tells crude and ugly jokes about various sorts of Americans. I have no evidence of this-it’s just that I have seen his type before.

    As a lawyer, I always tell my clients-never-never-never-plead guilty to a crime you did not commit. The excuse of “I just wanted to get it over” points to guilt and not innocence or court efficiency.

    Senator Craig is no Cecil Andrus.

  5. there is a conflict in him that rots him to the core. once he comes to terms he will hopefully stand up for the rights of so many people that feel the same as him. He is gay he has always been gay and always will be gay. gay is not a bad word. gay is also not a choice. there are millions of gay people in the world we all have them in our families and our lives and like all people most are good and there are always a few assholes in every group, family,race,religion. i still believe that most people are good.

  6. Rep. Yates—Correct–Cecil Andrus would have never operated in this way.

    Bill—He dislikes himself like Clarence Thomas does. He dislikes what he is and takes it out with his senate voting record on other gays.

  7. Which is worse though? Gay or Stupid?

  8. I’m not certain what your question means.On the face of it, it seems like a not very nice question.

    Comment by Neil Aquino | September 4, 2007

  9. Sorry! Rephrased question follows:

    From a public opinion and political impact point of view, which is worse? Gay or Stupid?

  10. Both are fine with me as long as they are on my side of the aisle.
