Sen. Larry Craig's behavior was certainly revolting. Grouping strangers for sexual favors in the men's room, is, well, at best tacky. Thinking you can get away with it because you are a U. S. Senator makes you want to send all of them back to preschool. But thanks to Larry there are some things we can more clearly see, so let's take a moment to thank him.


That was long enough.


Larry's actions spoke more truly than any of his campaign speeches or Congressional opinings ever did. That hand under the privacy barrier told us a lot about the world of which Larry has so long been a part. We know that world variously as Bush Co. of NeoConland.


When I first started trying to understand this clutch of greed infested freeloaders in the 90s I asked myself one question. What does the world look like to these people? If you know then their actions made perfect sense.


They sure didn't feel guilty about lying; they were caught often enough in flagrante delicto. That is especially true in this case. They do not feel guilty about lying to start the War In Iraq; they do not feel guilty about having intentionally ignored the threat to new Orleans to evade Federal costs and then enrich their friends. Probably they have never felt guilty about anything.


Craig, Bush Co. and their cronies remind me of children who think when they got away with it cold.


Anyone who has raised children has seen this pattern. I had five and was also a brownie leader and cub scout den mother. But children generally act guilty. No guilt here, why was that? And why the arrogance?
