Hats Off to Larry


Typically August is a slow month for news…

BOISE, Idaho—Idaho Republican Sen. Larry Craig will resign from the Senate amid a furor over his arrest and guilty plea in a police sex sting in an airport men's room, Republican officials said Friday.

Craig will announce at a news conference in Boise Saturday morning that he will resign effective Sept. 30, four state GOP officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Our old friend C.L. "Butch" Otter, the governor of Idaho, has the right to choose Craig's replacement. The smart money is on Jim Risch, the man who served as acting governor last year but stood aside to let Otter win the GOP nomination.
