The Daily Paper sent a nice Christmas greeting to Larry “Thumper” Craig in Sunday’s print edition and promoted web site oral history recordings of cutting remarks from gay blades detailing sexual encounters with Idaho’s most famous senator.
The story offered what Dee and other news anchors like to solemnly warn us are “graphic details.” The Dan Popkey story falls clearly into the “TMI” category–TOO MUCH INFORMATION. While most of the text was just more of the same old stuff, the part about who did what to whom during a massage session with a gay man probably didn’t do much for Sunday morning breakfast conversation. It included a description of position and action between the men.
Why Craig doesn’t simply go away is beyond us. Future politicians can take a lesson from this political saga: DO NOT TELL LIES–especially to the media!
Craig has brought Idaho more national publicity than the Fiesta Bowl and all the “top 10” magazine lists combined. Any bets on the number of “supportive” letters to the editor at the Daily Paper?
