A new YouTube video looks to Broadway to shed a little light on GOP Sen. Larry Craig's emphatic denials of homosexuality.

Cutting together Craig's statement in an Aug. 28 news conference with music and lyrics from the puppet-heavy Broadway hit Avenue Q, the video throws a little furry sympathy the senator's way via the show's topical number "If You Were Gay."

"If you were gay, that'd be ok," a puppet croons,"further insisting that "If you were gay, I'd shout hooray."

The puppet later promises to stand "beside you every day to tell you its were just born that way!" and gently explains "its in your DNA."
