Last we heard, Republican congressman Larry Craig was being isolated, even by those in his own party, over that unfortunate bathroom incident. That appears to no longer be the case.
For two days in a row, CNSNews.com has sought Craig's opinion on issues of the day in its "On the Spot" segment:
- A May 1 article by Josiah Ryan quotes Craig expressing a view diverging from the current right-wing attacks on ethanol. Craig blames liberals for the current controversy over whether biofuels are causing food shortages, adding, "Ethanol today has brought the price of gas down by 20 cents. ... [O]ur country is better off today because we are producing ethanol."
- A May 2 article by Ryan makes the startling discovery that Republicans, including Craig, believe that the controversy over Rev. Jeremiah Wright is a legitimate campaign issue. Quoth Craig: "But is it fair? In the political world a politician's relationship with anyone else has some value."
