Posted on 09/06/2007 10:48:43 AM PDT by Calpernia
WASHINGTON -- It now looks like Sen. Larry Craig is going to leave office after all.
His top spokesman said Thursday that Craig has just about dropped any idea of trying to complete his term, and that he is focused on helping Idaho send a new senator to Washington within a few weeks.
Craig's situation came up in Wednesday night's Republican presidential debate.
Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas and Rep. Duncan Hunter of California both called for his reignation.
"What I think is good about it is that he's taking responsibility in the sense of resigning from office, and I think he ought to stick with that," Brownback said.
Adding that he wanted the Republican party to "get to the bottom of this," Brownback said, "we shouldn't hide people. We shouldn't walk away from family values for fear that instances like this happen within our party."

Is “likey to quit” the same as “intent to resign”.
Sounds like parsing to me.
heh..let's make a deal.
What is with this Craig guy? in and out and in and out.
No thanks to the rat infesed hairdo of the Rino from Pennsylvania.
I think it is more like his “intent” to go to a certain bathroom at the airport.
That’s how he got into trouble in the first place!.................
The clue wagon must’ve made another delivery.
Just like a woman, can’t make up her mind. Nancy boy!
Yeah, why can’t he just be straight with us?

..that would prolly do it.
He ought to quit stalling and take a stance. He really needs to decide which side of the divide he’s on.
Don’t let the stall door hit you on the way out! (credit to someone else on here who wrote that in another thread)
'Sex Sting'? I thought it was a 'Sex Stink', having taken place, you know where?!
I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Arlen got a significant number of messages telling him to STFU and stop supporting the pervert.
As an aside, it would probably be good if the Senator from Kansas never gets involved in a homosexual scandal. :^)
please post this picture...
“He’s in, he’s out.
What is with this Craig guy? in and out and in and out.”
Larry Craig is now the flip flop champion taking the title over from John F. Kerry.
Larry. Go move to the Castro district in SF.
He was thinking of using a page from the Dem playbook: Shamelessness wins. Bill Clinton, Barney Frank, Gerry Studds, etc., just insist you did nothing wrong and fight to the end. In your face defiance. You’ll outlast your enemies.
I guess he couldn’t find sufficient allies, here or in his district.
Nothing left for it but to make like Britain’s John Profumo and spend the rest of one’s life toiling obscurely for charity.
Don’t go away mad, Larry, just go away.
Craig should establish a business that sells arrogance and ego. With an unlimited supply of these commodities, he would soon be a billionaire.
As my dad would say, it's time for him to "poop or get off the pot."
Man, did he blow this job!
Mr Craig, please just go away, and take a few hundred of your fellow pervs in both houses with you.

And you think I'm sexy
Come on, Sugar, let me know
If you really need me
Just reach out and touch me
Come on, Honey, tell me so ..."
I predict that within 30 days Craig will call a news conference to announce that he is a “gay American”, makes no apology for it, and that it was the mean, hurtful republicans and conservatives that kept him in the closet and the bathroom stalls.
This guy isn’t going down without a struggle and he’ll be grasping for whatever headlines he can get on the way down in an effort to remain relevant and employed somewhere.
"Just about"? Oh, brother, here we go again. More clintonian weasel-wording and tergiversating.
“Larry. Go move to the Castro district in SF”
and join the Log Cabin Republicans
It would astound me if no investigative reporter, especially in the homosexual media, did not publish a detailed article on this affair and soon. But it would also not surprise me if Craig embellished or changed his account to fit any new revelations. I believe even his family will eventually grow weary of his continuing flip-flops. As Sargeant Karsnia so aptly put it, "embarassing, embarassing."
Ever watch a bee trapped under a drinking glass? How about a rat with a paw caught on a sticky trap?
I've got news for you...
The Log Cabin Republicans don't want him! Apparently, they don't like restroom perverts either.
Assuming that his wide stance might point a finger at his guilt, he's tapping new talent to get him off.
You are so right. I think we just found one of his butt munches in the U.S. Senate, there are bound to be more, say does barney frank miss him too?
Immature Toilet Humor Ping!
If you are wondering how you got onto this list, it's because you said something funny on a previous Craig thread that cracked me up.
To be added to this ping list just make some stupid bathroom humor innuendo that has nothing to do with Larry Craig.
Craig really blew it. He threw his life down the toilet. The only way he can resurrect his career is to suck it up, swallow his pride, get on his knees and ask for forgiveness.
I was talking to my buddy Dick, who is an expert on this particulary section of the penal code. He’s with the law firm of Johnson, Weiner, and Wang LLC BTW.
He agrees that Craig is in a deep hole. There is no way for him to wipe his record clean.
The GOP is just better off washing their hands of the whole mess.
I asked the same question about Mark Foley...
A lot of people are saying that the prosecutor doesn’t really have a good case against Craig.
I mean, where’s the beef?
Craig’s career seems to be just floating with this paper trail on top of him.
He keeps tap dancing around the issue.
I heard he was planning to take a wide stance on global issues, do some diplomatic work and try to successfully negotiate the release of the chocolate hostages.
Good one. See pic above HG. Please add “Specializing in Rear End Collisions”.
I've wondered what the cop working the sting did to get this assignment? Think about it - he was assigned to go sit in an filthy, stinky airport bathroom all day and let gays hit on him.
Wonder if we will ever see that one on Dirty Jobs...
