TGIF anecdote

Many years ago, two up-and-coming Democrat politicos, Candidate A and Candidate B, faced off with a third, lesser-known candidate, Candidate C, for a safe Democrat congressional seat in Oklahoma.* Candidate A had a reputation for being a crook (which was later proven by a conviction for funneling nearly $300,000 into a congressional campaign), and Candidate B was rumored to be gay (which persists to this day). The story is that sometime late in the campaign the 3 candidates participated in a debate. It seems that the day before the debate, a new poll had come out showing Candidate C trailing the other two men for the seat. During the debate, and in an act of evident frustration, Candidate C motioned to the other two candidates sitting behind him and said, "I can't believe that I'm running against a crook and homosexual, and I'm losing!" To which Candidate A raised his hand and loudly stated, "I'm the crook!"
