Job requires travel to Minnesota

As an accepted graduate student at American University's School of Public Affairs, I have been placed on a Listserv from which I get announcements about job openings, internship opportunities, and available housing.

This morning, I nearly fell off my chair laughing when I checked my e-mail. In fairness, the person who sent it indicated that he was just passing the information along for a friend.

Here's what I found in my in-box this morning (that sounded dirty):

Craig Accepting Applications for Summer Interns

Deadline Quickly Approaching

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Idaho Senator Larry Craig is currently seeking intern applications for the summer term, which runs from May to August. The application deadline is March 15, however if more time is needed for the application process, please contact Senator Craig's office for an extension. Craig offers paid internships within the Washington, D.C., office. Preference is given to Idaho applicants attending Idaho schools who are in their junior or senior years of college (including graduating seniors).

'"Interns have the chance to be an essential part of a working congressional office," said Craig. "They participate in the legislative process as well as ensure that constituent services run smoothly. For those interested in politics, it is an incredible opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at how our government functions while serving the people of Idaho."

This is for real! Just in case you missed it, meet Senator Larry Craig (R-Idaho).

I don't think I will be applying for this one...because he is retiring in January and I will need a job after that. And I am not a Republican. His sexuality is irrelevant, but his message on the topic has been -- shall we say -- inconsistent. And long-running.
