Senator Craig

I was listening to talk radio on a drive today, and one of the hosts was wandering aloud about what the Senator Craig scandal supposedly meant. These were a lot of the obvious questions such as "Why is it okay for Democrats to be gay but not Republicans?"

Suffice it to say that this line of reasoning misses the real meaning entirely. In reality, it is all about Iraq. Just look at the timing of the last big scandals. Before the 2006 elections, there was the Mark Foley scandal. When the Democrats were launching their spring offensive against funding for the troops in Iraq, there was the Alberto Gonzales scandal. Now we're a week or so away from General Petraeus' report on the surge in Iraq and another vote on war funding, and now yet another Republican scandal is all over the media.
