Senator Larry Craig (R-ID) has faced plenty of ridicule for the past 15 months following accusations that he solicited sex from a toilet stall in a Minneapolis airport.
The passage of time, a presidential campaign, and the perennially unfolding Lindsay Lohan saga should have made this scandal disappear long ago. But Craig's shame is still making headlines, thanks to the efforts of one very powerful individual…
Lawyers for U.S. Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho asked a Minnesota Court on Wednesday to void the guilty plea he made following his arrest last year in a men's toilet sex-sting operation…
Craig was arrested at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport on June 11, 2007, after an undercover police officer said the lawmaker kept looking through a crack in the door, sat down in a stall next to him and used hand and foot signals to indicate he was soliciting sex.
Why is Craig still dragging this out in court? His Senate career in its final months and it's not like there's a lawmaking "seniors tour" he could be banned from. If anything, he should take a page from fellow celebrity convict O.J. "If I Did It" Simpson and write a book where he explains what it might be like if he actually was scoring anonymous toilet sex with business travelers.
It could be like a Penthouse Forum for closeted gay federal lawmakers.
Don't laugh. According to former Rep. Jim Kolbe (R-AZ), that's a bigger demographic than you think.

While the Jon Stewart and the Daily Show correspondents recharge their batteries following two weeks of ass-kicking convention coverage, let's use this week to take a look back on the cream of their convention coverage.
The DS correspondents bring it hard core to the DNC and show why they're The Best Fucking News Team Ever.
John, Jason, Aasif and Rob report live from Larry Craig's infamous bathroom/sexatorium in Minneapolis.
Jon chooses the media analysis of Wyatt Cenac over Samantha Bee's, even though she's "Still the One."

Sarah Palin is just a small town gal, which means that when she's president in 10 months, America will start to look a lot more like a small town.

If you're one of the 38.9 million people who forgot to turn your televisions off after the Giants-Redskins game on Thursday, then you probably found yourself captivated by the calming white noise that was John McCain's acceptance speech.
But, here's a little moment you might have missed. It seems to be some kind of glitch with the video projection behind McCain's head. I myself didn't catch it the first time around (although, I will admit that I was drifting in and out of sleep).
Pay very close attention to the screen at about 11 seconds in…
Funny. I feel like I should have noticed a thing like that.

So, wait a minute. We couldn't score the credentials to get into the Xcel Energy Center to participate in the Republican National Convention, but Triumph the Insult Comic Dog could?
I feel neutered, somehow…
However, I will say that Triumph's political analysis was appropriately sober and thoughtful.
Well, for the circumstances.
