I'm sure it's been asked elsewhere, but why did the Sen. Larry Craig arrest take two months to surface in the news? It occurred in June -- why the long delay? Was someone(s) covering it up for Craig?

I'll postulate another theory. It's very likely Craig's arrest in June was kept very quiet by the powers that be, but when it came time for Gonzales to resign, high-up Republicans knew they needed to find some diversion to fill up the media space. It didn't take long for them to find this juicy scandal just waiting to be leaked. Craig has likely been a longtime headache to many in the party, with his history of sexual run-ins and denials, and needless to say it didn't help his cause that his reported-on encounters were non-heterosexual in nature. (Prostitutes, affairs, etc., are seemingly OK in the GOP, but not gay sex). Also, the governor in Idaho is Republican, making a replacement safe for the party. So perhaps the Craig story was a strategic leak to benefit Gonzales. It's possible.

But on another note, it's getting to where if you're adamantly against gay rights/marriage and you're a Republican, then there's a 99.9% chance that you're gay! Those Republicans definitely not gay and are against all things gay should be furious!!
