He's quite the hypocrite

Self-proclaimed teetotaler has strange definition of teatotaling:

 U.S. Sen. Michael Crapo, a nominally sober and "squeaky clean" Mormon busted for a DUI on Sunday, is apparently no shrinking violet when it comes to hitting the sauce. According to a police report unearthed by the Washington Post, the Republican senator from Idaho told his arresting officer he'd "consumed several shots of vodka" before setting off in his car and making a left turn on a red light. Crapo "said he drank the vodka hours earlier, and hadn’t had anything to drink since," but he still blew a blood alcohol level of 0.11.

It's not exactly the biggest scandal ever -- this makes him about the oh...millionth politician to have a DUI (may be conservative in guessing there) -- but the fact he claims to not drink adds a bit to it.

Hmm... Just before Christmas, and the senator is caught driving drunk in Arlington VA when he's got a wife and five kids back in Idaho...?

...seems like there may be more to this story than we're getting so far.

OK call me Mr. Cynical, but I'm predicting Crapo may have "something" in common with his fellow Idahoan the former Senator Larry Craig..

If you catch my drift. And I think that you do.

weird, followed some links from the Crapo article and stumbled on this---

A woman sentenced to LIFE IN PRISON for letting a 13 year old boy touch her boobs? WTF? isn't this just a little bit harsh?

but was the vodka lemonade flavored?

Ah, well, Crapo was happy to promote a "squeaky clean" image of himself, whether it was true or not.

Hypocrisy is always okay if you're a Repug.

Ha, ha, thanks again, Idaho, for sending another winner to the Senate.
