People, including some in his own party, are demanding that United States Senator Larry Craig resign his seat in Congress. The reason is that what? He is gay? He is convicted of a petty misdemeanor based on his conduct in an airport restroom? Is that it?

Craig should do what Clinton should have done. He should have said that sex life is a private matter, and get out of people’s drawers! Get out of my underwear! If the people of Idaho want to fire me, that is their right. End of story for the present.

If I am a hypocrite about sex, is that a high crime? No; let my constituents decide my political fate. I will take the ultimate test, which is, how does my peccadillo render me unable to serve my country and people?
