Idaho? No, he da ho.

Republican Senator busted for a failed gay tryst in an airport bathroom? That's low hanging fruit, but I'll take a shot.

Larry Craig (Green-Rainbow - ID) was arrested in June when he tried to go undercover with an undercover cop who was on a gay tryst detail in the Minneapolis airport. (Who did he piss off to get that assignment? Might've been because he's so handsome, at right.)

According to the police report, the Senator knew all the hand and foot signals (waving and tapping, respectively) that are "used by persons wishing to engage in lewd conduct."

"I was able to see Craig's blue eyes as he looked into my stall," Officer Friendly reports, along with the delightful nugget that later Craig said he is "unable to take his gold wedding ring off his left ring finger."

When the officer flashed his police ID, it apparently wasn't the package Sen. Craig was looking for, and he exclaimed "No!"

Later, when being brought in for questioning, the not-so-happy senator gave the officer a business card identifying him as a U.S. Senator and said "What do you think about that?"

Don't know about you, but I think he's f'd.

All of this was a delightful prelude to yesterday's Craig news conference in Idaho, where he uttered the now famous line: "I'm not gay. I've never been gay."

Funny -- he left open the possibility of being gay in the future.

Maybe it was just a stall tactic.

'Reach-around,' indeed.

Do you know the name of the cop? I'm wondering if he's Minneapolis musician Mark Mallman's younger brother.
