August 28

Nothing happened today unless you consider the impending demise of yet another Republican Senator, this one from Idaho. His compatriots appear to be on him like a wolf that just came upon a dead deer. When there is no meat left, they are headed for the bones.

It seems that the good Senator may have come on a little strong to a police officer back in June. Then, just to make it go away, he pled guilty guilty to a disorderly conduct charge on Aug. 8, with the court dismissing a charge of gross misdemeanor interference to privacy. It seems he was peeking into a stall and then went into an adjacent stall and played footsies with the officer.

Senator Craig has been one of Mitt Romney's strongest Senate supporter in his run for the Presidency. He is the second of Romney's little band to resign from a post due to cloudy sexual innuendo. Sound's like Mitt has not done a very good job vetting his groupies.

On a lighter note, on this date in 1968, Chicago police started and then quelled a riot outside the Democratic Convention. On the streets of Chicago, antiwar protesters massed in the downtown area, determined to force the Democrats to nominate Senator Eugene McCarthy. Mayor Richard Daley responded by unleashing the Chicago police force. Thousands of policemen stormed into the crowd, swinging their clubs and firing tear gas. Stunned Americans watched on TV as the police battered and beat protesters, reporters, and anyone else in the way. The protesters began to chant, "The whole world is watching. The whole world is watching."

I read the Senator Craig article with interest today as well.
Mitt is really batting a thousand, isn't he?
