Vitter's Statement is Stupid

My Way News - Senator's Number on Escort Service List: "'This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible,' Vitter said in the statement. 'Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God and my wife in confession and marriage counseling. Out of respect for my family, I will keep my discussion of the matter there - with God and them. But I certainly offer my deep and sincere apologies to all I have disappointed and let down in any way.'"

What we know for sure is that Vitter likes naked women to rub around on him or for someone to suck his toes, as was the case for the honorable Dick Morris. While I am certain I understand the need to put out such a ridiculous pile as this statement, I wish it were entirely unnecessary. I wish people could just say that they enjoy a romp occasionally whether it is socially acceptable or not. Again, I really do understand that this was the piece of garbage that had to rain from his office, but I like my little dreamworld better, where honesty trumps feel-good apologies. I mean, have you ever, in your life, read anything this hollow?
There are going to be others that have to "apologize" for this nonsense. What we should be saying is that we don't care whether the men call the escort service and we don't care that women work for them as long as it is done freely, without force or cercion. The problem, of course, is that our law, much like the religion that Vitter references, does not see the two as equal. Men, under most laws, are immune to punishment on the matter, while women are carted off to jail for what is, in essence the very same offense. We should see with the number of men and the rank of many of them that this is a part of our lives whether we like it or not. I suppose I will sit alone with this take.

Actually, by Louisiana standards, Vitter is quite ethical. In terms of ethics, I think Louisiana thanks God for Arkansas in the same way Connecticut thanks God for New Jersey.

It is only a scandal when republicans do it. When democrats do it, it is a vast right wing conspiracy.

Somebody needs to immediately ask Hillary Clinton's opinion on the subject of Vitter...or better yet ask Bubba.

Anyway, I am contacting conservative bloggers around the country since I am one as well. I hope this email is not an intrusion.

I would like it very much if you would go to and vote for me for best political blog and best overall blog as well, IF AND ONLY IF you feel my blog is of a high quality. I really think I have a legitimate shot at winning. If you are open to spreading the word, that would be cool as well.

Thank you.
