Congressman Bill Sali is always ready to Stand Up for everything that's right and good about this country, and one of the best things about the USA is that most people don't ever think about sex. That's not the case for the socialists at the Idaho Socialist Statesman, though. Today, they're spending all their web resources vainly trying to get people to believe that Senator Larry Craig wanted to have sex with a man, and making the good people of Idaho think about prostitution and how it can be found on the Internet.
The saddest part of the paper's gutter-mindedness was how they tried to tear down a young woman entrapped by the police on trumped-up prostitution charges in an online story. Here's the young woman in question:
I ask you, does this woman look like a prostitute? She looks like someone who, if she met the right preacher of the right kind of church would be shouting out "Oh, God, yes, Jesus" at the top of her lungs given the right encouragement. The police claim that her Craigslist ad (I guess it's some sort of E-Bay for one city) is really an invitation for "johns", but I can't see it -- there aren't any dollar signs, and since prostitution means sex for money, no money means no prostitution. Plus, she has one of those "MySpace" pages, where it doesn't mention prostitution at all; in fact, it says she's a student.
I really hope that Congressman Sali continues Standing Up to the filth that the Statesman publishes. Tomorrow, he's going to spend some time answering questions online at a non-socialist paper's website; maybe if the Boise paper would straighten up their act, he'd do the same thing for them.
