This story just keeps getting stranger. Now Jenny Sanford, the wife of Governor Mark Sanford, has released a press statement. My first question is… why? I don’t recall a wife ever releasing a statement the day the husband cries in front of the camera. Elizabeth Edwards, if I’m not mistaken, stayed away from the cameras. Vitter’s wife said nothing. Craig’s wife said nothing. I don’t think we have seen Ensign’s wife since his announcement. My second question is… who helped her with this statement? It seems overly aggressive. She seems to be going out of her way to say that she had done everything she could to help this clod and he still strayed. The release is very much an “in your face” type of statement.
Senator Larry Craig is now trying the last act of a disparate man. He is trying to be seen with wife in front of the camera. I’m not sure if this helps or hurts his case. There really isn’t any excuse. If you thought that you were framed then hire a lawyer. I panicked is his excuse. Please. What a load of horse feathers. The best part of the interview is that he is trying to blame the media. It is their fault. It isn’t his fault for bumping boots with a police officer. It isn’t his fault for not telling his wife, his staff or his lawyer about it. It wasn’t his fault for pleading guilty. It was the media’s fault for covering the story. I would like a Kilo of whatever he is smoking for next weekend!
Update: Lauer’s interview style was terrible. There were no probing (pun intended) questions. It was a waste of time.
Most Republicans understand that Larry Craig is an anchor and he is pulling the Republican Party down with him. As far as I’m concerned Larry Craig and Mark Foley belong in the same sentence.
Sen. Larry E. Craig (R-Idaho) vowed to serve out the remainder of his term yesterday despite losing his bid to withdraw his guilty plea for disorderly conduct in an airport men’s restroom.
Craig, who said earlier that he would resign if unable to withdraw his plea, said he is considering appealing yesterday’s decision by a Minnesota judge. The judge ruled that some of the senator’s legal arguments were “illogical.” (more…)
