Senator Craig loses his appeal

In other news in the political arena, we learn that Senator Larry Craig has lost his appeal over his conduct in the airport restroom. You might recall that:
He quietly pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor and paid a fine, but changed his mind after word of his arrest became public that August. Craig insisted he was innocent and said he was not gay. His attorney argued that the police officer misconstrued Craig's foot-tapping, hand movements and other conduct.
Yeah, right. Misconstrued. That's a good word.
"I am extremely disappointed by the action of the Minnesota Court of Appeals," Craig said in a statement. "I disagree with their conclusion and remain steadfast in my belief that nothing criminal or improper occurred at the Minneapolis airport." He said he and his attorneys were reviewing into the possibility of further appeals.
To which I might ask: Okay, Senator, if you did nothing criminal or improper, why did you plead guilty?

He's guilty, by his own word.
