[Vision2020] Another reason why Craig is a hypocrite

I agree with what you say below and I realize now that I should have
indicated this in my post to Roger, and in other posts.
I don't think that anything that Craig did, or attempted to do was, especially egregious. I
don't think that he should have resigned. I don't think that he should be vilified. I have
pity for him and the way his career ended.
As some have noted, nearly all of the condemnations and calls for resignation came from
radical conservatives, though others are stuck with the blame. All I wanted was for him to
be honest with himself and others, and not to pass discriminatory laws against people that
he doesn't mind have sex with.
And I agree that there are more important things to worry about than Craig.

While this quote from Craig is laudable, and should be applied from the top
to the bottom for all those in public service, Craig's misconduct in this
case is minor, in my opinion, though there does appear to be a degree of
hypocrisy in the way Craig "lied" to the police officer who witnessed
his "misconduct," assuming the officer was not fabricating details. I
won't expound further, in part because the Craig scandal is a distraction
from far, far more serious offences and wrongdoing in government, that are
going unpunished and mostly unexplored in mainstream media.
If Craig being forced to resign is justified for his misconduct, we could
make a list of taxpayer supported public servants involved in the Iraq war
and the prosecution of the war on terror, guilty of far, far more grievous
offences, who deserve far more attention and exposure in the media than the
Craig case received, and who certainly should be removed from office.
When are impeachment proceedings going to start against Bush?
Yeah, I know, Nanci Pelosi when assuming speaker of the house said
impeachment is "off the table." This is incredible! Of course the
Republican die hard supporters in the US Congress would never let
impeachment go anywhere. But they should at least try. At least Kucinich
has went public with his attempts to impeach Cheney
