In the New York Times, Daniel Kurztman catalogues 2007’s most laughable US political antics. My favourite paragraph:
Best Fodder for the Late-Night Comedians: Senator Larry Craig (R-estroom) gave â€œnew meaning to the word caucusingâ€ (David Letterman) when he was caught playing footsie in the menâ€™s room with his infamous â€œwide stance.â€ Craig announced his resignation, then later reversed his decision after â€œtalking it over with guy in stall number 3â€ (Conan Oâ€™Brien), angering his Republican colleagues, some of whom â€œstopped having sex with himâ€ (Jimmy Kimmel). The staunchly anti-gay lawmaker denied being a hypocrite, saying, â€œHey, I wasnâ€™t trying to marry the cop in the bathroomâ€ (Oâ€™Brien). Later, he was inducted into the Idaho Hall of Fame â€” not the entire hall, â€œjust the menâ€™s roomâ€ (Jay Leno).
