Just when Mitt Romney thought he was safe from the bad press generated by his association with Idaho Senator Larry Craig, the wide-stanced senator sat down with Matt Lauer this weekend to talk about his scandal. The Associated Press reports that Craig calls Romney out for his quick post-scandal abandonment. It’s no “you’re no Barry Goldwater,” but it’s pretty good.
Let’s hear it:
“I’d worked hard for him here in the state. . . I was a co-chair of his campaign on Capitol Hill. And he not only threw me under his campaign bus, he backed up and ran over me again.”
Tell it to Seamus, Larry.
