Craig & Tap-Tap Jokes Return

Larry Craig of Idaho left the US Senate in 2008. His impact is still being felt -- both as a lobbyist and as a defendant in a lawsuit. The details are well developed in the McClatchy article below. What isn't so clear is how this re-surfacing of Larry Craig's highly embarrassing public bathroom episode will serve him. Is it the money? Is it some type of obscure and "official" Senate duty (which may help MANY other elected officials who feel it is warranted to use donor dollars for legal expenses. For me, it's just odd that just when we thought it was "safe" to come out of the water-closet, we're all back there again. The "tap, tap" jokes. The "wide stance" stuff. The black-eyed-potato comments/Dennis Mansfield. More here. (AP file photo: Larry Craig, with Gov. Butch Otter standing by him, announces his resignation on Sept. 1, 2007)

Question: Will we still be talking about this embarrassing incident 10 years from now?
