Who's More Morally Superior?

Ever since it came to light that Idaho's Bathroom Bandito was literally caught with his pants down, a raging debate has begun as to who's morally superior to whom. First, if you somehow missed the news, Larry Craig is a third term senator from Idaho. The Republican Romeo of the Public Bathrooms, as he is now known, was arrested back in June of this year for soliciting gay sex from a man who just happened to be an undercover policeman, Sgt. Dave Karsnia, in a Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport public men's room.

Senator Craig is a bible thumping right wing demagogue, married with three adopted children and nine grandchildren. His five term career in the House of Representatives and three term career in the U.S. Senate could be best described as an ultra conservative, family values, anti-gay crusader right out of the morally superior handbook. He has consistently voted against homosexual marriages, homosexual civil unions and openly homosexual recruits in the military. Even those willing to go to Iraq and die for their country can't be OPENLY gay.

Craig has basically skated through his nearly 27 year career of public service in a thoroughly anonymous fashion. He is probably best known for his appearance on Meet the Press on January 24, 1999 when responding to host Tim Russert's question of "
Larry Craig, would you want the last word from the Senate be an acquittal of the president and no censure?" Craig replied with this bizarre answer, "Well, I don't know where the Senate's going to be on that issue of an up or down vote on impeachment, but I will tell you that the Senate certainly can bring about a censure resolution and it's a slap on the wrist. It's a, "Bad boy, Bill Clinton. You're a naughty boy." The American people already know that Bill Clinton is a bad boy, a naughty boy. I'm going to speak out for the citizens of my state, who in the majority think that Bill Clinton is probably even a nasty, bad, naughty boy. The question issue now is simply this: Did he lie under oath? Did he perjure himself and did he obstruct justice? And that's where we're trying to go now in this truth-seeking process. Wow!!!

Craig then immediately crawled back into his hole of anonymity only surfacing earlier this week in his new role as the man who liked to moan on a public throne. Craig then plead guilty as charged and then, and only when, Roll Call Newspaper make the story public, did Craig strut out before the cameras and microphones with his poor wife in tow to proclaim what a morally superior heterosexual he is. Yeah right, Craig is better suited to be the Queen of England than the King of the High Road.

Larry Craig, LA Senator David Vitter, former FL Congressman Mark Foley, FL State Senator Bob Allen, along with the Duke Cunninghams, Tom DeLays and Newt Gingriches of this world, all like to thump their chests and then kneel at the feet of the morally superior right wing, family values crowd and thank Jesus for showing them the light and making them such good, upstanding men of high moral fiber. What they should have done was apologize before the American people for being such lying, hypocritical, immoral weasels.

I have a specific two word response to those specific sacks of manure and anybody else for that matter who feels they are morally superior to anybody. No, not those two words this time, but these two words. SHUT UP. No political party, religious sect, organization or any specific individual is morally superior to anybody. Learn to live your life the best you can and then mind your own business and allow everyone else to do the same. I pride myself on not using religion or personal pomposity to feel morally superior to anybody. I have to assume Jesus didn't preach moral superiority prior to propositioning other men in public bathrooms or soliciting sex from underage boys. I would have to think neither should his followers......
