An Overwrought Defense

Idaho Republican congressman Mike Simpson thinks that Senator Larry Craig's senate colleagues have treated him unkindly: "I hope I never stub my toe and they throw me under the bus. It kind of makes you wonder what party you want to be a member of."

Of course, it might be expected that a friend will defend a colleague from his home state. However, if Rep. Simpson really cannot discern the difference between pleading guilty to a crime as a result of an apparent solicitation of sexual activity in a public bathroom and stubbing one's toe, then one wonders how he can possibly have an aptitude for making the nation's laws.
