Return of the Prodigal Tosser

It was terribly exciting on Capitol Hill yesterday, because much to the delight of all his Republican colleagues, Larry Craig came back! Hooray! The lavatories at Union Station were positively abuzz! Dana Milbank was on the scene with a hilarious report, one which gives the impression of nervous GOP stalwarts fleeing in terror from the toxic Idahoan (and wire photographers doing the opposite).

One thing is certain from Milbank's account, that Arlen Specter really, really needs to get himself a slang dictionary [emphasis mine]:

Even Craig's few defenders were having trouble finding words. "You don't toss off, er, over, a friend of that duration," reasoned Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.), who suggested that others feel the same way in private. "There's been a lot of favorable talk about Larry in the cloakroom," Specter said.


Um, hello? Arlen? You're not helping! I believe that the phrasing you were groping for was that you didn't want to blow him off.

But speaking of being helpful, the Associated Press decided that their clients surely needed context, so they provided photographs (from every angle!) of the scene of Larry's mortifying crime, now Minneapolis' top tourist attraction:

"It's become a tourist attraction," said Evans. (AP Photo/Andy King)

Hej! Can we please have a write up on Condi and Tzipi's latest meet up in Jerusalem? Thanks!

It's like his hand is almost coming (heh) out of the screen at hairdressers everywhere!

And I can feel the sexual energy emanating from that royal blue tile. Oh, if those walls could talk... my, oh my.

Love you, Princess!

I think that the royal blue tile is part of the sting... obviously so titillating.

Poor Larry didn't stand a chance.

Arlen Specter is either very, very obtusely Freudian, or unbelievably bitchy to a level of cattiness heretofore usually reserved by hairdressers and girls named "Heather" (and possibly "Veronica").

If he ever calls Craig a "Master debator," we'll know the truth.

Thank you for not resisting, Princess.

When can we start selling t-shirts? "My husband went to the MSP men's room, and all I got was this lousy chlamydia."
