The Larry Craig Interrogation Tapes, Ready for Your Consumption

Wonkette has audio of the Larry Craig interrogation from immediately after he was arrested in the Minnesota airport bathroom. Worst. Interrogator. Ever. I’m no expert in police work, but I’m guessing yelling “Disappointed! Disappointed!” at your suspect over and over isn’t in the manual.

Speaking of Craig, “well-placed” Republican sources are telling CNN that he will resign soon, possibly as early as today. If Craig hasn’t actually made his decision yet, that’ll certainly be a kick in the pants. FYI, Friday afternoon before a long weekend is a great time for a news dump — people getting an early start on the holiday, and that’s basically everyone, will miss the news.

Update: Salon has a truly excellent article called “Why bathroom sex is hot: Larry Craig is the latest politician to get caught with his pants down. So what is the eternal allure of sex in a stall, and does it make you gay?” Highly worth a read if the events of the last few days have left you scratching your head. Of even if they haven’t. Good piece of writing.

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
