Maybe he has an evil twin

I'm beginning to believe there was a Star Trek teleporter accident somewhere between Boise and Minneapolis and an Evil Twin Senator Larry Craig was created. First he swiped his hand three times under the neighboring guy's stall wall, then he claimed he was reaching for a piece of paper (with his palm up), then he pled guilty to disorderly conduct, then he said he shouldn't have pleaded guilty, then he was going to resign from the Senate because his case would be too much of a distraction, and now tonight he says he might fight it out.

Who has ever seen someone unable to escape his ambition in the face of all evidence of his coming destruction? To risk what's left of his family, his reputation, and his honor for the perks and fame (infamy) of being a US Senator? To damage his party, his professed beliefs, everything he built in his career in an attempt to falsely clear his name?

Charles Foster Kane: Don't worry about me, Gettys! Don't worry about me! I'm Charles Foster Kane! I'm no cheap, crooked politician, trying to save himself from the consequences of his crimes!

Gettys! I'm going to send you to Sing Sing! Sing Sing, Gettys! Sing Sing!
