Larry Craig A Political Cartoonists Dream



Larry Craig, A Political Cartoonist's Dream

Idaho's senior Republican senator Larry Craig was arrested in June for lewd conduct in a Minnesota men's airport restroom--and he pled guilty. All was fine and good for two and a half months, until the story broke. While the headlines and the GOP are reeling, the real fun is on the op/ed page.

The cartoon litmus test shows Craig's days are numbered - but by the grace of the cartoonists, Craig will not go quietly into the night. With fellow Republicans calling for his resignation, what's an embattled senator to do other than scream as loudly as possible that he is not gay? In editorial cartoons, Craig is living out the cartoonist's dream: a right wing politician involved in a gay sex scandal, with a cover up to boot. That's definitely worth a few potty jokes.
