Playing footsies in the bathroom:get out; Corruption scandal: eh.

When Sen. Larry Craig was caught in a men’s stall touching an undercover cop’s foot, Republicans ran over each to say he should resign and that he was a disgrace. But whether Rep. John Doolittle, who has had a much written about and investigated career, should run for re-election?

Rep. David Dreier, R-San Dimas: “It’s up to him. … He’s a good-hardworking member. … We’ll continue to have conversations. He’s going through a difficult time. I have great respect for him as a public servant.”

Rep. Gary Miller, R-Diamond Bar: “I support what John wants to do. John has to make that decision, whether he runs or whether he retires. That’s a decision solely in his camp and whatever he chooses to do I support. I like him personally.
“We’re colleagues. You don’t generally turn against your colleagues. These are individuals you work with and I’ve always had a very good personal relationship with John Doolittle. I know nothing about what he’s being accused of.”

Of coure, those comments were better than Rep. Elton Gallegly, R-Simi Valley, who really went out on the limb: “I think he should absolutely make the right decision.”
