As part of the honor, they are naming a stall in the airport men’s room after him.

If I were a citizen of Idaho, I would send some very nasty e-mails to this organization.

Ted Haggard’s boyfriend has now stated that Sen. Craig had “come to see him” in Denver......

Not looking good for “Old Wide-——stance”....

How in hell do these miscreants become SENATORS?

He may be inducted into Idaho’s Hall of Fame, but as for me, I think he should go to the front of the line of inductees in America’s Hall of Shame.

Many sports figures have discovered that the Senator's preferred stand provides a distinctive advantage in competition and overall health. Exercise physiologists believe the now famous "wide stance" may prove to be the new position in the upcoming olympics.

“Larry Craig has made a great contribution to Idaho over the period of 20-some years...”

Craig is a black mark and embarassment for the great State of Idaho. It is time for the people to get vocal and put a stop to this travesty.

I guess we better stop cracking on the dems for re-electing their good-for-nothing drunks, druggies and bridge runner-offers ... when here Idaho is inducting this shame of a man to a hall of fame. I am embarassed for him, since he doesn’t have the good sense to be embarassed for himself.

Those are some wide stances! How in hell does Senator Craid do that with his pants down around his ankles? Hmmm?

My waist is 38, and I know there's no way my "stance" could be at wide as the Sinator claims his is!

Sorry — I should have included at least one of the many Google Links to “Mike Jones and Craig” -— covering the male prostitute that dragged Ted Haggard out of the Closet — and his claim to having Senator Craig as a “client”....

Craig to Stay in US Senate

Senator Larry Craig (R-Idaho) vowed he will serve out his term in office despite losing a court attempt to rescind his guilty plea in a men’s room sex sting. Craig said a letter from Representative Barney Frank (D-Mass.) convinced him disavow his earlier promise to resign.

“Getting such warm encouragement from a fellow member of congress made me realize that it would be foolish for me to prematurely eject myself from the senate when there are still so many opportunities to be of service,” Craig explained.

“I just told him he was being too hard on himself,” Frank said, confirming his receptivity to Senator Craig’s continuation in office. “Even though we’re of different parties, I’ve persuaded him that we can come together on at least this one issue.”

alongside Craig, including Gov. Butch Otter, Lt. Gov. Jim Risch,

Unbelievable?, What about real heroes like Helen Chenoweth, Vern Ravenscroft, Pete T. Cenarrusa etc.

Why would Jim Risch be in the "hall of fame" before them, and so many more? It justs shows how phoney the award is.

"Those are some wide stances! How in hell does Senator Craid do that with his pants down around his ankles? Hmmm?"

Glad to see I'm not the only one who has asked this question. You wouldn't believe the flak I took when I dared suggest that Craig's "wide stance" claim was impossible and for the very reason you suggest. According to Craig, his pant waist was at mid-thigh and he spread his knees to "keep them from touching the floor." There is no way on Earth that Craig's "wide stance" excuse could hold, not unless he has an 80-inch waist.

BTW, all bathroom stalls at the MSP Airport (both terminals) are extra-wide. I checked.

Is the Hall going to unveil a statue with a wide stance?

Better yet, a wide stance tap routine. They could put it right next to a statue of Arlen Specter chasing his magic bullet with a Scottish law book tucked under his arm.

You remember Specter, right? He's the guy who went on national TV last month and practically demanded that Craig withdraw his plea and have a circus trial.
