Republican Idaho & Public Toilet In Ancient Rome

 

 To give you a sense of how Republican Idaho is, the Senate seat to be given up tomorrow by Larry Craig has been held by a Democrat for a total of just under 8 years since Idaho Statehood in 1890. The last time was in 1946.

Don’t despair though—Idaho did elect for it’s other Senate seat the great liberal Frank Church between 1957 and 1981. Senator Church was a champion of Civil Rights. He lost his seat in the 1980 Reagan landslide which cost Democrats the Senate.

Senator Church was the last Democrat to represent Idaho in the U.S.Senate.

The above picture is of a public toilet back in ancient Rome days. It looks quite open in terms of  making a covert solicitation.

  2. About those toilets,

    By the way there is no toilet paper, but next to the toilet is a bucket of water. There you’ll find a stick with a sponge on the end of it. That will have to suffice. I hope you’re not shy; these facilities will seat 15-30 people. What’s that? A stall?…Uh…no, don’t plan on any sort of privacy. — Mark E. Moore in “Life in the Big City: The Cultural Setting of Paul’s Evangelistic Efforts”

    A sponge on a stick, I’m sure covert solicitation was the least of their concerns.

  4. Back then in rome Craig would have had a feild day. it was very common for the council to have boys at there disposal. today if craig would have just said i like a good dick now and than he would not have to step down.

  5. That’s true. A Roman Senator could have done what he wanted.
