    I am not saying Craig didn't lie, nor that he didn't plead guilty, nor that the cop wasn't truthful, nor that he hasn't been living a decades-long lie.

    But for a 27-year Congressman - the second-longest serving in Idaho history -  to be run out of Congress in one week's time over a minor misdemeanor in a men's room?

    I don't like Lary Craig. I disagree with him on pretty much every issue. But I think the guy was dumped on this week ... big time ... by the national GOP.

    From Wikipedia: "Swiftboating is American political jargon that is used (primarily) as a strong pejorative description of some kind of attack that the speaker considers unfair—for example, an ad hominem attack or a smear campaign."

    Coming this fall: DemocracySpace, a nonpartisan blog for community activists and public officials.
