Did He Really Say That?

Time once again for “insert your own joke here.” Today’s episode comes to us from Senator Larry “the tap heard ’round the world” Craig’s interview with Matt Lauer.

From page 2 of the interview:

Matt Lauer: They had a laundry list of accusations. There was a guy back when you were president of your college fraternity who said you came onto him; that there was a rumor you were discharged from the National Guard because you were gay. And that there was a guy who says you cruised him, whatever that means– a store in Boise.

Larry Craig: I was president of a fraternity. I had to make tough choices sometimes about leadership roles. There was a young man who was bounced from our fraternity for getting involved in drugs. I believe that was the gentleman. He was not very happy with Larry Craig and the leadership role that I had to play.

Matt Lauer: So– vendetta? That was a little bit of–

Larry Craig: It– it’s very possible that that was a vendetta.

Matt Lauer: How about the National Guard?

Larry Craig: The National Guard– I have a medical discharge based on my feet.

Based on this revelation, Larry Craig has overtaken Ted Kennedy on the “I can’t believe he said that without blushing” meter — at least for today.
