Playing 'Taps' for Larry Craig's Political Career

It’s being reported that Idaho Senator Larry Craig might resign either today or before the weekend is out. Definitely not for being gay though.

Detective Noel Nelson, who arrested Craig, certainly seems to know about Congress. From the arrest transcript:

Detective: Okay, sir. We deal with people that lie to us everyday.

Sen. Craig: I’m sure you do.

Detective: I’m sure you do too sir.

I really feel bad… for the detective. How’d you like that job?

“Okay Noel, we’ve got your assignment for today.”

“Busting up that counterfeit ring downtown? Investigating yesterday’s bank heist?”

“Uh, no… you’re going to be sitting in a stall at the airport bathroom waiting for men to hit on you.”

“Oh…”

This just has to be one of those jobs that the “new guy” gets.

I understand the release of the transcript, but I really don’t think it was necessary for police to release the surveillance footage. Why the need to further embarrass the senator?

Fred Thompson Finally Announces…

…the time of the announcement on when his official announcement will be.

We’re getting there. Next is the announcement later today at 4 p.m. concerning when the official announcement will be. Then we’ll get to the official announcement next week, barring any other teaser announcements over Labor Day weekend.

Update: Thompson’s political director just announced on a conference call with supporters that Thompson will announce next Thursday night on a webcast. Where that can be viewed will be announced in a press release that is coming at a yet-to-be-announced time.

PornBush

From the “Artists with way too much free time, not to mention porn mags” department comes this:

US Republicans are none too pleased with Brit artist Jonathan Yeo, who’s just completed a fetching portrait of George Bush constructed from grumble mag clippings.

The work was unveiled yesterday at London’s Lazarides gallery, which explains the motivation behind the thought-provoking piece: “Yeo was commissioned to undertake a portrait of US President George W Bush, but was later told his services were not required. He decided to continue the commission on his own…”

Republicans were outraged by this exercise in distaste, at least until they heard Larry Craig’s foot tapping in the next stall.

This “portrait” style would be much more appropriate for a Bill Clinton bust — literally.

Hillary Courting 'Trouble'?

In the wake of the shady looking Norman Hsu/Hillary Clinton fundraising story, I just read that the late Leona Helmsley, a loyal New York Democrat (“The Queen of Mean” even gave money to “The King of Malaise” Jimmy Carter), left her dog, Trouble, a trust fund of around $12 million.

Question: At what point will the pooch end up somehow, some way, being a major donor to the Hillary for President campaign? If Trouble were a Chinese Crested, this would be a no-brainer, but she’s not, so the answer to that question really depends on what’s in the dog’s FBI file.

Dogs have always loved the Clintons, so look for Trouble to give a big donation to Hillary

Birds of a Feather…

Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, who has come back from the dead so much that he has a cameo in Rob Zombie’s remake of “Halloween,” has essentially endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, and Barack Obama for vice-president.

This should help bring home the remaining 1% of the Hollywood leftist wacko commie-hugging voters who remain undecided:

Ailing Cuban leader Fidel Castro is tipping Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to team up and win the U.S. presidential election…

…”The word today is that an apparently unbeatable ticket could be Hillary for president and Obama as her running mate,” he wrote in an editorial column on U.S. presidents published on Tuesday by Cuba’s Communist Party newspaper, Granma.

Is anybody here old enough to remember a day when getting a tip from a communist dictator could actually be harmful to your campaign? Now it can help shore up certain voting blocs in America.

This isn’t an endorsement per se, but close. Castro wouldn’t so advise Hillary if he thought she was going to be a threat to him she’s elected — and if he remains on the north side of the grass for the forseeable future. If Fidel isn’t dead by January 2009 he might even be looking forward to a night in the Lincoln Bedroom. Hillary still has no word yet on who Kim Jong Il, Hugo Chavez and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will endorse. Fingers crossed!

The story also quotes Castro as saying that his favorite U.S. president to deal with was Jimmy Carter, but we already knew that. Jimmah still has a ball gag and leather hood he got as a gift from Castro back in ’78 which bears the inscription, “Thanks for being my bitch — Fiddy”

Update:

Somebody should send Castro one of these — the Hillary nutcracker. Order yours today:
