Those who live in glass houses.... shouldn't have been throwing rocks in the past

It's been one of those days where the comedy writers don't have to do anything but turn on CNN,FOX or MSNBC and let the material write itself.

Senator Larry Craig most likely watched his political career come to an end today.

After his rather strange press conference to address his recent plea of guilty to charges stemming from a sex sting in a Minneapolis Airport bathroom.

The more he talked and protested his fate, the worse his already bad situation seemed to get.

He was the fodder for every news show on all the news networks all day today and he became the gift of material for the nightly talk shows like Leno, Letterman et al.

His only saving grace is the fact that Jon Stewart was on vacation, for this would have been a gift from the satirical Gods for Stewart and his Daily Show crew.

The problem for Craig isn't so much his very public problems (though they do seem to be bad enough) but more his past deeds and words while in the House of Representatives and the Senate, where he now seems to be the poster boy for hypocrisy.
