People I Hate

By Wyatt Earp | August 30, 2007

It’s another lovely Thursday in Philadelphia, And while the Philly Police Department is mopping up the blood of another homicide scene, I figured we should christen this week’s edition of PIH.

Senator Larry Craig (R – ID)

Wow, it this guy a tool of the highest order, or what? Craig responded to his bathroom-related disorderly conduct arrest this week by saying – get this – he did nothing “inappropriate.” He’s right. I mean, who among us can honestly say they never entered a public bathroom, made suggestive gestures to the person in the next stall, and were then arrested for disorderly conduct?

Craig’s blue eyes were clearly visible through the crack in the door, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport police Sgt. Dave Karsnia wrote in the report he filed.

“Craig would look down at his hands, ‘fidget’ with his fingers, and then look through the crack into my stall again,” Karsnia wrote in documents accompanying the arrest report. Craig said the officer misinterpreted his actions.

After he was taken for questioning, the police report says, Craig pulled out a Senate business card and asked the officer: “What do you think of that?” (H/TCNN)

Would you like to know what I think, Senator? I think that you are a piece of garbage who tried to bully your way out of a compromising position. I think you are a sexual deviant; not because you are gay – and don’t insult us by saying that you are not – but because you would use a public bathroom as your own personal boudoir. You sir, sicken me, and I am ashamed that you represent the state of Idaho, my political party, and the United States of America.

Major League Baseball

Yeah, I am impugning an entire organization. First, the entire league looks the other way when Barry “Roids” Bonds breaks Hank Aaron’s home run record, and now this nonsense:

NEW YORK – Major League Baseball’s style police were patrolling Yankee Stadium, and Red Sox manager Terry Francona was pulled over.

During the second inning of Wednesday night’s game against the New York Yankees, Francona was called out of the dugout so an MLB security official could make sure he was wearing his uniform top under his usual pullover jacket. (H/T – )

Can you imagine? And they did the uniform check in the middle of the game! Does anyone remember when baseball was so beloved that it was deemed “The National Pastime?”

Me neither.

PA State Senator Vince Fumo (D)

When you get the chance, ask RT how she feels about this toad. Fumo’s corruption trial is scheduled for February. In the meantime, he maintains his innocence, and refuses to step down. Typical of dirty politicians.

A federal judge ruled yesterday that State Sen. Vincent J. Fumo, who faces 139 charges of federal fraud and obstruction of justice, can keep Richard A. Sprague as his lawyer.

139 charges. Are you kidding me? And yet, Fumo still refuses to resign.

Fumo has said that he is innocent and that the indictment is politically inspired by Republicans at the Justice Department. He resigned from several key government posts after his indictment but remains one of the state’s most influential senators. (H/T - The Philadelphia Inquirer)

He’s right! It’s that damned Karl Rove again, out to besmirch another squeaky clean politician! Is anyone else tired of this argument? This is the same thing Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and Jesse Jackson claimed about the Philly City Hall wiretap “scandal.” “It was a conspiracy by George Bush,” they said, and America’s worst mayor, John Street, rode the wave of pity to re-election.

By the way, a federal appeals court just upheld the sentences of Street’s corrupt cohorts, who were arrested immediately after the wiretaps were set up.
