Larry Craig, From Pop-Culture to Holiday Icon

Last week, his name became a verb in the pop-culture lexicon when actor William Shatner was "Larry Craiged" on ABC's Boston Legal show. This week, Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho), aka The Senator Who Won't Leave, is the subject of a lobbying firm's holiday card.

This year's card from the bipartisan Federal Strategy Group founded by Jason Roe and Mike McKay - "Decking The Halls of Power Since 1999" - features two men in Washington power suits passing a giant candy cane under a men's bathroom stall, undoubtedly the international symbol for "Ho Ho Ho."

The photo featured on Federal Strategy Group's holiday card.

The card began arriving today in Capitol Hill offices. It was quickly downloaded into a PDF format and is now going "viral" on the email circuit.

As for Craig, he'll still be a senator come the new year. He has decided to complete his entire term, which ends in January 2009. Of course, if he wants to completely renege on his pledge to leave the Senate, which he made in the wake of his arrest and guilty plea in connection with a men's bathroom sex sting, he has a few months to make up his mind: until late March, the deadline for filing re-election papers with the Idaho secretary of state.
