Dirty politics all around

by Chris Matthews, on Tuesday’s broadcast

Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, the cultural warrior of the right stands naked tonight exposed as both a sexual deviant and a world-class hypocrite.  A crusader against gay marriage, gay civil unions and gays in the military, he faces his country, his party and his people as having solicited sex in an airport men’s bathroom.

Sen. Craig is also not just a representative of a conservative state but he’s a strong voice for the conservative presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Craig appeared in a video for his role as a Mitt Romney campaign leader. The campaign yanked that video off their Web site after Craig stepped down from his campaign role. Is Craig a problem for Romney?
