Music Matching Politics

Why is it that whenever I see anything involving Senator Larry Craig in the news, the song “Punky’s Whips” by Frank Zappa starts playing in my head?

Between his legal issues and the travails of Ted Haggard and Mark Foley, it makes me wonder how many of the virulent homophobes who have done so much to poison public discourse and deny people their basic human rights through the years are really taking their own self-loathing and externalizing it, projecting it upon people like themselves who have instead found the courage to be honest and proud about who they are. Just a thought . . .

Andrew Sullivan has a very thoughtful piece about it here.
