It never rains but it pours for the Republicans?

Oh dear, the Republicans across the pond are not having a pleasant few weeks. First Rove quits, then the Attorney General, and now one of their Senators, Larry Craig, has apparently pleaded guilty to lewd conduct in a mens toilet in Minnesota airport.

The US blogosphere has it seems gone crazy with linking to this story, and the viewing rate of a video from 1982 where the same senator issues a denial about a sex and drugs scandal involving Government pages (I think that means interns) is now doing the rounds too.

Some how, the Republicans don't seem down and out...

You would think a man who married his cousin (now divorced) Rudy Giuliani would have no chance for President...

Guess again

...a sex and drugs scandal involving Government pages

Oh, Dizzy, therein lies an old, old joke:
Q: Why don't Congressmen use bookmarks?

A: They just bend over their pages.

I know you are into your gadgets but for a minute I thought you had written about a sex scandal with government pagers. Now I know the Iphone is meant to be pretty good - but I didn't think pagers could do that!
