US Senator and cattle rancher Larry Craig who was arrested in a Minneapolis Airport bathroom for propositioning an undercover police officer for gay sex has come out against Smokey the Bear. Only Elsie and Elmer can prevent forest fires has become Craig's new slogan.
Craig has been fighting Federal land managers to allow him to graze his cattle on land that was ravaged by fires recently. Craig claims that his cattle would have prevented the fires by consuming the combustible grasses on the forest floor.
Craig, speaking from the bunk house of his Beast on Beast's Back Mountain Ranch went on to say:" And I'm not gay!"
