Senator Craig isn’t alone

Idaho Republican Senator Larry Craig continues to wage his lonely and courageous effort to clear himself from charge his “wide stance” toilet habits led to the unjust accusation he was actually engaged in soliciting sex from a man in the next stall (who turned out to be an undercover police officer staked out in a restroom with a reputation as a meeting place for such liaisons). I know it looks bad. But there are enough other stories about to show how easy it is to mistakenly judge restroom visits. One of my favorite blogs, Brain Police, reminds us of just such a case, as reported by the BBC:

    This is a running bit on the sitcom show “little britain”. Funny stuff, though there’s a bit of toilet humor on the show.

    Sorry. Not a sitcom, but a sketch comedy.
