Some times I have evil thoughts, part CXIII

Louisiana Senator David Vitter has made a career out of being a strait-laced, no-nonsense family man. Back in 2000, his wife was asked to comment on Bob Livingston, the former Speaker who resigned after his marital infidelity was revealed. Mrs. Vitter's comment was remarkably clear and to the point:

"I'm a lot more like Lorena Bobbitt than Hillary," she said. "If he does something like that, I'm walking away with one thing, and it's not alimony, trust me."

Senator Vitter has been outed as a customer of the infamous DC Madam.

Would it be against the law to send steak knives to Mrs. Vitter, c/o the senator's office?

Guess we better be careful when referring to him as a "member" of Congress?

WOW! Send all the knives to her. But until he is charged, indited, and found guilty, why bother? Since most elected critters say one thing and do another, and the GOP (Gods own perverts) seem to be the worst of the bunch.

Why is the republican party claiming to be the party of family morals? Does anyone think that maybe they should drop that stupid line of talk, or should they just clean up.

The democratic party has a long list of dirty linen themselves, but they really don't make the claims about moral values.

When all the phone numbers are figured out, most likely it will be about 50/50 of both parties.

Why are these people re-elected all the time, given air time on the MSM after they are out of office?

It looks as though Vitter may have compromised the future of his caucus.

Strange how these 'revelations' only name Republicans, but when you try to widen the investigation the MSM decides that 'privacy' is more important, or that it is 'old news'.

This is a hit job of the first order. Cherchez les femmes.

It's like I remember reading a few years ago: When Republicans betray their conservative ideals they lose their office and embarass themselves and their families. However when Democrats betray their liberal ideals they get filthy rich, increase their power and their kids get a good education.

Not New Orleans, hermie, Washington DC. And you know there are very prominent Dems on that list.

I believe Vitter has his wife's forgiveness. Walls have ears, you know. Besides, I'm sure Hillary is a lot more like Lorena than Hillary, too. You don't hear of Bill raping anyone anymore, do you?

Well, I have to say, he should consider resigning. Even though I know it would hurt our majority, but one of the parties has to set the example. We cannot tout family values during the day and go to whorehouses at night while the wife and kiddies are home waiting. It is.Just.Plain.Wrong. Vidder made a commitment before God that he would be faithful to his wife. If he cannot honor his oath to her, he certainly will not be loyal to me. I know the LA mayor is unfaithful many times over, but the democrats will embrace that. We should do better. ww

Sorry WildWillie, but that'... (Below threshold)

Sorry WildWillie, but that's just idiotic. People slip up, it does not automatically make them hypocrites. The man confessed and apologized to his wife back when this happened.

We all of us fail to live up to an ideal, that does not mean a failure to abandon that ideal renders one a hypocrite. The only person who can be entirely free of slipping up is one who holds to no ideal or standard of behavior - which is why a Democrat found in bed with boy or girl, dead or alive in either case, is usually put on page B37, while the Republican is on the front page.

Why is the Republican typically the only one accused of hypocrisy? Because we (including their MSM supporters) expect Democrats to engage in such acts because they proudly hold to no standard of behavior or morality.

I think it actually speaks well of the GOP that we continue to hold on to and advocate these standards even though we know they're difficult to uphold and that we would mess up occasionally (even regularly) - we are human after all.

Robert the Original:

I'm told that quite a few of the numbers track back to lobby companies.

Unthinkable it is that some members of congress are not the ultimate beneficiaries.

So then we consider how corrupt this is. How "in bed" with a lobbyist must one be for this subject to even be brought up? Would you suggest this with a close friend? "Bob, send the wife to the movies, I'm sending over a couple hookers".

"Hello Senator Ed? Come out to the barbeque, we'll have some girls there and we can talk about that bridge to nowhere, pants are optional." Fairly familiar I'd say, and brothers in skullduggery.

So you think about it some more and you realize that the guy who called directly is the guy who doesn't have a lobbyist at the ready.

And so he is probably one of the more honest of the hypocrites.

nogo war,

I'd say Vitter's wife won't leave him.

She's not in Hillary's position of trying to run as a politician on her own, so it doesn't matter if the general public sees her as a doormat to a philanderer.

If this is anything like the marriage of Vitter's predecessor, Bob Livingston, then the marriage is a political one more than a traditional one.

She's basically along for the ride like a Carmela Soprano, getting the benefits of being the wife of a powerful man and being a queen bee.

While it's low to impugn the reputation of the betrayed wife, political marriages are a long tradition in this country and in states like Louisiana in particular.

If she's in a political marriage, she'll stick around for the benefits no matter how Vitter embarrasses her publicly.

If she's a true wife and not a political one, then her sticking around would depend on how this had been handled within the home before it went public.

No, she didn't mean it like Vitter didn't mean it when he spoke about family values. They are just useful political ploys.

Here is what Vitter's said about Clinton:

"But that doesn't answer the question of whether President Clinton should be impeached and removed from office because he is morally unfit to govern."

We should expect his resignation any minute now.

Now the liberal trolls on this thread will tout resignation out of sheer hate. Martin Knight: Yes I agree. People make mistakes. For sure I have made a few. But this is not a mistake. He did not go to a whorehouse once on a whim. He solicited quite often. That is not a mistake, that is a pattern of bad behavior and a great sign of bad character. I like to think that republicans are better then that. In fact, I am sure we are. He should not be supported. Forgiven, yes. ww

"We need a U.S. Senator who will stand up for Louisiana values, not Massachusetts's values. I am the only Senate Candidate to coauthor the Federal Marriage Amendment; the only one fighting for its passage." D. Vitter 2004

I guess breaking the law and cheating on your wife strengths your marriage. Doesn't say too much for LA Republican Christian Conservative values.

Barney, democrats would look a little less hypocritical in condemning Vitter, if they were not continually condoning immoral behavior among their own.

Vitter did a bad thing, but he doesn't need to resign. If he breaks major laws or obstructs justice or takes bribes or does something that violates his office...THEN he should resign.

Federal officers are elected to do their jobs. If Lincoln had an affair, but saved the Republic and freed the slaves...well, he shouldn't have been forced to resign. And even though Vitter is much less illustrious (and I am no fan of his), I see no reason why he should resign.

I'm a woman and I used to be a wife. Steak knives would probably be a very welcome household gift just now.

It is most faggy to criticize Republicans that fail. We are all fallible and prone to sin and mistakes. I don't want Jesus as Senator (as He does not want it). I want someone who knows he needs Jesus because of his sinful nature. The democrats, and Barney, sin and sin and sin and don't know they need Jesus, and that's the difference. I sin and sin and sin, but I know that I need Jesus. That alone is the difference, not whether we sin.

nehemiah, that is total BS. By your standards we can commit any crime and cry to Jesus for redemption.

You may have sinned, but I have not.

Vitter committed a crime based on our laws. Jesus might have loved the prostitutes, but that is not the behavior we expect from our Senators.

Rome -- Vatican officials today announced that American Senator David Vitter (R, LA) remained unforgiven for any and all sins he committed as a client of a Washington escort service "unless he asked forgiveness of Roman Catholic Jesus, not Southern Baptist Jesus -- or any of those other Jesuses -- right up top and including Anglican Jesus.

"We have a lock on forgiveness," said one official. "That's how it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be."

Boy won't you be surprised when you end up in hell for all those sins of yours.

nehemiah, I believe the question is grammar.

Take for example: "It is faggotous to criticize Republicans that fail."

nehemiah, I guess Vitter will use this passage to justify his behavior:

"And it shall come to pass after the end of seventy years, that the Lord will visit Tyre, and she shall turn to her hire, and shall commit fornication with all the kingdoms of the world upon the face of the earth. And her merchandise and her hire shall be holiness to the Lord: it shall not be treasured nor laid up; for her merchandise shall be for them that dwell before the Lord, to eat sufficiently, and for durable clothing" (Isaiah 23:17-18).

I guess you can justify just about anything.

maybe if republican women actually performed oral sex on their men, then their husbands would find no reason to go to whores. But since people like Dildo O'reilly and vittner married frigid frumps who can't perform in the sack, i don't blame them for doing what they had to do.

That sounds like the stories surrounding deceased former Baton Rouge TV personality Vernon Roget.

When the "Baton Rouge Madam" was busted about 10 years ago, stories came out of some of the people in her black book including him.

He was reputed to have been wearing a diaper and being spanked by her girls.

That didn't go over well at home, especially considering he was married to one of the TV anchors in town.

Steve Crickmore:

I just posted this comment and link on Wizbangblue but I think it is relevant here as well...I'm not an expert on the bible belt, but I think Rick Perlstein is on to something when he says Vitter's transgression is part of deeply Southern culture of sin and temptation. Somehow it does make the 'sin' more human, or "all to human," as Perlstein says..Of course, the downside is, if we forgive Vitter we have to forgive Clinton.
