“The American people already know that Bill Clinton is a bad boy – a naughty boy. I’m going to speak out for the citizens of my state, who in the majority think that Bill Clinton is probably even a nasty, bad, naughty boy.”
– Senator Larry Craig, 1999, to NBC News.
Matthews’ expression at the end says it all. God, this is a terribly awkward thing to say – especially one straight man about another. It sounds more like he wants to spank him than censure him. But instead of spanking the bad (probably even nasty!) naughty boy, he later voted guilty on both impeachment charges before the Senate.
“Thanks for coming out today.”
– Senator Larry Craig, to the news pool, in opening his press conference yesterday.
