Larry Craig resigns

Senator Larry Craig (R-Idaho) resigned today. Idaho is a ruby-red state and Craig will be replaced by a Republican, so his departure will have no direct impact on the balance of the U.S. Senate. But Craig's scandal, coming on the heels of so many others, cannot help but depress the social conservative base of the Republican Party, a party already troubled by plummeting fund raising numbers.

The WaPo has much more on this scandal: I'm going to go watch some college football.
