You Craiging?

Thanks, Sen. Larry Craig. I've been thinking for a while about the need for a neat little word to describe someone who publicly engages in very homophobic behavior while secretly engaging in very homosexual behavior. A lot has been written on his toe-tapping misadventures already, so I'm enjoying all the new, uh, twists. Like this:

[Matt Foreman, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force] did express some empathy with Craig in regard to the reaction of his GOP Senate colleagues. They have called for an ethics committee review of his case, which they did not do in response to revelations that Sen. David Vitter, R-La., was on the contact list of a Washington-area escort service.

"The double standard is shocking," Foreman said. "We'll throw the closet queer under the bus, but if you see a female prostitute, that's just fine."
