Larry Craig bids goodbye to Ted Stevens:
Among the farewells was one from another Republican departing under the cloud of scandal, Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho, who pleaded guilty in a men’s airport sex scandal but has denied doing anything wrong.
“Uncle Ted, I’m going to miss you,” Craig said. “This Senate will miss you, your state will miss you and America will miss you.”
America will miss neither of these guys. They can’t leave Washington fast enough. It’s disappointing that their GOP colleagues didn’t force the issue long ago. They would be in a stronger position today if they had.
