That Larry Craig really goes both ways. First, the Idaho senator is washed up, tapped out, spent. Then he's stalling for time, hanging tough, scrapping. Now he's throwing in the paper towel again. One group that definitely thinks he should have stuck it out is cartoonists. When the tawdry news first broke (does this scandal have a name? Tap-it Dome?), Jack Ohman of the Oregonian hit the hands-down trifecta, and he did it without gratuitous toilet humor (not that there's anything wrong with that). He first tweaked Craig's hypocrisy, then he put the whole affair in retrospective perspective. Finally, he peeked ahead to possible future electile dysfunction. By the way, note how perfectly Ohman renders the Capitol. I'll let you in on a trade secret -- Ohman does the best edifice in the business.
