Sometimes news is so fantastic it leaves even seasoned journalists short of breath. It seems that’s what happened when Bruce Tomaso saw this headline: “Sen. Craig to join Idaho Hall of Fame.”
After double-checking to make sure I hadn’t logged on to The Onion by mistake, I read the story, from USA Today.
Seems the senator was chosen for the Potato State’s Hall of Fame back in March, before his infamous, toe-tapping encounter with an undercover cop in an airport men’s room.
“Larry Craig has made a great contribution to Idaho over the period of 20-some years. At the time it was considered, this other matter had not come up,” said Harry Magnuson, chairman of the hall of fame’s board.
I honestly don’t know what to say here.
