Larry Craig: In the Eyes of the Court, Still a Choad-Gobbling Stall Monster



Poor Larry! His latest attempt to "appeal" his own voluntarily-given guilty plea has come to naught:

A court just ruled that Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, can't withdraw his guilty plea in the criminal case that derailed his political career.

Members of a state appeals court said this morning that Craig, who was arrested in 2007 during a sex sting at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, failed to convince them that the law was too broad or that the trial judge abused his discretion.

Here's the entire 10-page ruling.

The Associated Press says Craig can still appeal his case to the state's highest court.



Please keep appealing, Larry! You'll always be appealing to us!

Former Florida Representative and racially-frightened blow-job offerer Bob Allen was also denied his appeal.

There's such a thing as grace under pressure. And neither of these two men seem to have heard of it.

"We see no abuse of discretion in the denial of appellant's postconviction petition to withdraw his guilty plea."

IANAL but I believe this translates to "getthefugouddahere.'

Yes, poor darling. But the best thing is that Yahoo News reported the story by publishing a photo of Larry with a Sarah Palin button on. You can see it at My Cats Are Democrats, at http://mycatsaredemocrats.blogspot.com/.
