Ever wonder how politicians got stereotyped as disingenuous preachers who can’t live up to the standards they create for others? Take this little example:
A group of Senate Republicans proposed a constitutional amendment this week — called the Marriage Protection Amendment — that would define marriage as consisting "only of the union of a man and a woman."
And whose name sticks out like a sore thumb among the sponsors of this crucial piece of policymaking? That would be Idaho Sen. Larry Craig — he who was arrestedlast summer in a public airport bathroom on disorderly conduct charges after he was found allegedly trolling for gay sex.
(Actually, there are two sore thumbs in the bunch. Another sponsor is Louisiana Sen. David Vitter, who was entangled in a prostitution scandallast year. Vitter was never charged with any wrongdoing, but admitted to "a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible.")
If this amendment had been in place, of course, neither episode would have happened.
