GROSS... WONKETTE FOUND SOMEONE WHO ADMITS HE HAD SEX WITH LARRY CRAIG
The picture is David Phillips who, in 1987, had a pretty revolting sexual encounter with Idaho Republican homophobe Larry Craig who, as you already know, is not gay and has never been gay. (And Bush doesn't torture-- nor, by his definition, did the Spanish Inquisition.) Anyway, read Wonkette's account.
Yesterday it came out that even before Craig was entrapped and arrested in a public toilet for trying to have sex with a cute undercover cop, he had hired a law firm (and a p.r. flack) to either sue all his ex-sex partners who were spilling the beans on him or to sue the media outlets that were beginning to investigate the reports. I guess he could have consulted them before he plead guilty to playing footsie with the cute cop, although by the time of the incident he no longer had them on retainer. He had already paid them $37,350, although I'm not certain what they did for all that money (which came out of campaign contributions).
On the weekend of November 9, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, horribly outmatched this year by their Democratic counterparts, is having a "Desperation Weekend" at Sea Island, Georgia with many of the far right's biggest financial sugar daddies. The NRSC encourages as many GOP senators to come as possible-- except one. They specifically asked Larry Craig not to show up and embarrass them further. He RSVP-ed that he'd be there.
UPDATE: THEY ARE THE BOYS
A few days ago Lucas and I put together an innocent little music clip for the Until December song "we Are the Boys" for Crooks & Liars and now people are talking about making it the theme song for the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis next year.
