Stick (it) in there, Larry 

Today was a major step in the legal effort to clear my name. The court has not issued a ruling on my motion to withdraw my guilty plea. For now, I will continue my work in the United States Senate for Idaho.

Yea Larry, go go go! Larry Craig is fighting for the seat in the Senate he previously "intended" to resign from.

I believe the hand and foot signals he used should be considered protected speech - if they're not, one may as well claim we can ban all flirtatious signaling, including verbal. It was his choice of venue and audience that was clearly offensive. It's fitting to discipline anyone who solicits anything from the guy in the stall over.

Craig's misdeed was minor; an argument could be made that mental health counseling is the most appropriate response to the misdemeanor. Seeking to socialize with a guy who almost certainly placed himself wherefore precisely to avoid any kind of social activities is a clear indication of a seriously maladjusted personality.

I do sympathize a bit with Craig, he's from a different era - but being that he's chosen to be outrageously public about being in the closet, I'm all for him keeping his seat and basking in hypocrisy. Good luck, Larry and thank-you for the peak into the extreme right-wing's ingrained comfort with even the most monstrous and obvious dishonesty.

I can't say I'm proud of Republicans. They seem to ignore what they claim to stand for.
