Ben Stein, on Larry Craig

The whole story of Senator Larry Craig, the Republican of Idaho who announced his resignation yesterday, is a nightmare of out-of-control police and weak politicians...

Shame on the GOP leadership, and utter disgrace to the airport police and their thug behavior.

These are security people in airports. Hello! An airport? Don't they have anything better to do?

Sandip Roy, on Larry Craig

To paraphrase Mark Anthony –

And we must pause till it comes back to us.
