Larry Craig can dish it out, but he can't take it

Soon-to-resign Senator Larry Craig of Idaho recently pleaded guilty when he was caught propositioning an undercover male cop in the airport in Minneapolis.

Larry Craig has long campaigned on a holier-than-thou platform.

One example of Craig's sense of moral superiority was reported by Jonathan Alter in Newsweek, September 10, 2007, "In 1998, Larry Craig refused to attend Clinton's State of the Union address, calling the embattled president a 'nasty, bad, naughty boy.'"

Now Craig has pleaded guilty to being a naughty boy, but still insists that he is morally superior to the many friends he has apparently made in public restrooms.

Perhaps Craig is suffering from compartmentalization, where one part of the brain seems to be cut off from the rest of the brain, and appears to be following a different set of rules.

Or maybe he's just a particularly bold hypocrite.
