In this day and age, we really can’t be too certain what might cause a religious Republican who claims to not drink alcohol to drink. Surely the conservative Mormon Idaho Senator, Mike Crapo, never would have been boozing it up had gay marriage not been so victorious around the US this year, right?
After all, we’re still trying to figure out if Dan Savage’s marriage caused Track Palin’s divorce (Dan denies it, but those homersexuals are known to lie). Who would put it past Dan, mischievous little anti-elf that he is, to use his homosexual wiles to entice a religious right Mormon Republican senator into sin?
Nationally around 10,000 people die each year on the road from drunk drivers. Crapo has apologized for being an idiot and driving under the influence but shouldn’t he be apologizing for being a typical conservative hypocrite? Then again, the GOP is the party that openly embraced Newt Gingrich and gave a round of applause for prostitute-loving David Vitter.
What part of the Book of Mormon says drinking until you are drunk is OK followed by driving? I’m admittedly not an expert so someone’s going to have to point out that part of the book.
“I made a mistake for which I apologize to my family, my Idaho constituents and any others who have put their trust in me,” he said. “I accept total responsibility and will deal with whatever penalty comes my way in this matter. I will also undertake measures to ensure that this circumstance is never repeated.”
Crapo (pronounced KRAY-poh) was released around 5 a.m. Sunday on an unsecured $1,000 bond. His court date is set for Jan. 4.
Crapo has served in the Senate since 1998, where he has built a reputation as a staunch social and fiscal conservative. He is currently in his third term and won’t have to run again until 2016.
Everyone knows Congress has perks and benefits well above most voters. How many of us would have problems with their employment if they were busted for DUI? How is it that the congressional lifestyle is so protected? It’s doubtful that the hypocrite Crapo will resign considering Senator Larry “Wide Stance” Craig‘s history. What’s up with Idaho being so obsessed with voting for GOP hypocrites?
