Senator Larry Craig “What Mr. Craig did in that men's room isn't an offense. He didn't have sex in a public place. He didn't expose himself. His toe tapping, hand signals and ‘wide stance’ were at most a form of flirtation. As George Will has rightly argued, if deviancy can be defined down to ‘signaling an interest in sex,’ then deviancy is what ‘goes on in 10,000 bars every Saturday night in our country.’ It's free speech even if the toes and fingers do the talking.” -Frank Rich, New York Times , September 23, 2007
