    First off, let me say this, because I know there is going to be a gang of liberals attacking me because this is a Republican. If the charges leveled at Mike Crapo are true, I condemned them and feel he has brought shame not only to his family and his community, but to the office in which he holds. Now there, to satisfy all you partisan Democrats out there, I criticized a Republican.

    Now, allow me to make a larger and more significant point. Who cares? This is not newsworthy. obama is salivating as he prepares to raise taxes on every American come January 1st. We should be discussing issues such as that. Politicians getting drunk on duty is more of the dog bites man news variety. Nothing unusual at all in this story. How Americans will cope with the largest tax increase in American history is something we ought to be talking about. Oh, btw, obama also plans to raise the cost of milk to $6 a gallon. That's worth talking about too, considering he already has gas way over $3 a gallon.

    Neo, you and I both know that if the GOP wanted to lower taxes for 98% of us all they would have to do is vote on the package the Senate sent them last summer. It's that simple. Put the bill up for a yes or no vote. Boehner won't do it. The GOP is willing to throw 98% of Americans under the bus in order to give unneeded tax cuts to the richest Americans. The only reason that taxes will go up is because the GOP is protecting the billionaires. As to Crapo, I agree this is a personal failing and other than making fun of his name (as I did with unfortunately named democrat Anthony Wiener) I'm not dumping on him.

    Neo, let me be the first to commend you on your bi-partisanship. On the tax thing, you are right. It is the story. And kids, just to let you know, get used to gas with your Cheerios...cause it's cheaper and will get you "going" in the morning! LOL

    You are priceless, Neo.

    Here you are claiming credit for criticizing a Republican, and in the next breath saying what you criticized him for was of no importance. And then you fall back to type with Noun-Verb- Blame Obama.

    If you didn't exist I'd have to invent you.

    @DARSB

    You have a great imagination and sense of humor, but you really think you could top Neo on the absurdly funny scale?

    When someone fails on a personal level such as this I hope they get advice similar to one of the first lessons of Alcoholics Anonymous.

    "We claim spiritual progress rather than spiritual perfection.”

    @Godlesspanther- Sorry to crapo on your joke because I enjoyed it, but it would have been even more clever if you had kept the shot and mug in the same order as "shot and a beer."

    He had a shot and a mug and then a mugshot.

    But like I said. It was clever enough and Crapo has it coming. After all, if a drunk drives after said drunk drank drinks, said drunk deserves a dig or two.

    LOL! You better believe it. I have no respect for "anyone" who gets behind wheel after drinking. I had 2 good friends killed by a drunk driver.

    The Mormon Church will forgive, the City of Alexandria will prosecute, and the radicals on Politix will rant. In the end he has to live with the legal, moral, personal, and professional consequences of his actions.

    Let me just say a few things:
    1st >>> Bahaha (idiot)
    2nd >>> Never think you are above your teachings/preachings or the law
    Last >>> UMMM, Bahaha (again)

    Careful some moron you know may have baptized you and you might end up in Mormon heaven, which would be hell for most people...

    the 'rest of us" are getting DUIs left and right also...it is a national tragedy. Seems far too many people feel they don't have to obey this law.

    @woodtick57 Very true. I guess I hold our nations leadership to higher standard. I, a lowly subject, obey the law, Why can't congress?

    @FollowTheMoney it would be nice to see people lead by example. Parents to their kids on this DUI issue would be a great one to start with.

    He is human just like the rest of us. If you think you're perfect you'd better watch out, someone will be nailing you to a cross.

    YES republican/democrat. there i said it twice. When in the last 40 years have we ever been able to expect a principled politician.

    I think just about every member of congress claims to belong to one religion or another. And I'm sure they all say it's wrong to lie, cheat and steal, yet that's what they do for a living. Yep, I can say hypocrite... ;-] To all of them.

    who cares about him being mormon its more that he holds an office. funny though i don't recall if the guy drunk and on ambien was arrested when caught and said he ha to go vote.

    @jessejaymes What I really meant was, oh well now he will probably have to resign due to the fact that he was caught doing things that mostly only Democrats do.

    @Romney2012 Mostly only Democrats? In my 66 years I'd say it's just about even. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. When you claim the moral high ground through religion and you get caught doing what you claim you don't do then you should have to resign. Either party.

    What is it about these Idaho Republican senators? First it's Larry Craig getting it done in bathroom stalls. Now it's Mike Crapo going for a drive after having a few too many. What ever happened to family values and personal responsibility?

    Ok, right wingers start on the count of 4, 3, 2, 1......Let he among you without sin cast the first stone. We forgive all hypocrite right wingers and hold none accountable unless you of course happen to be anyone other than an extremist right winger. Second verse, same as the first.

    @texas_cutie75 Again I think maybe we have a difference in terminology. I would say every single right winger I ever met is about as uptight as a stepped on rattlesnake. Some conservatives are pretty good people but I never met a right winger worth knowing. There is a huge difference between a conservative (of which i consider myself one on most issues) and a right wing (of which I would rather be dead than be like.)

    It's the people who preach the loudest "That's bad. That's wrong. Immoral!" who tend to not only do what they are preaching against but do so irresponsibly.

    @marine1

    How so? There is no rule about not drinking when you are a Senator. There is if you are. Mormon.

    Seems it is only the religious part that has the hypocricy...as usual...

    @woodtick57 when you run for public office and use your religious values to enhance your credibility, if you get caught violating those religious values you betray the trust in a way the is both religious and political. Indeed religious failing are between man and god, it is only political failings that are issue to be punished at the ballot box...

    there are probably a good percentage of Mormon drinkers. I know a few, what they preach is far different from their actions. Nobody is perfect....wink wink.

    At least he didn't get arrested for touching little boys and girls or at least yet republicans have a thannng for that

    I know Patrick Kennedy got a ride home from the capitol police after crashing his car near the capitol building thinking he was late for a vote while high on prescription drugs.

    No preferential treatment there.... no calls for resignation, punishment, etc
