I love this quote: "Louisiana Republican Sen. David Vitter...admitted recently he was the customer of a call-girl service."
Now, for those keeping score at home (because I don't, on republicans or democrats) how many politicians have admitted they paid for (cough) services in the last few years? While there is a lot of hand wringing over morality by the Republican party, it's strange when you add together call girls + foot tapping, eg, public behavior at odds with their political platform. Thoughts?
Among the many downsides to earmarking, and one that we rarely talk about on the House floor, is the practice of circular fundraising. Campaign donations are given to Members, Members secure earmarks benefiting their contributors, and contributors, in turn, are able to give Members more donations. This cycle is repeated over and over and over. Unfortunately, this is a bipartisan practice.
I like to reflect on the words of Rev. J.R. "Bob" Dobbs. "I don't practice what I preach because I'm not the kind of person I'm preaching to"
Also Rasputin noted that because of Jesus' sacrifice it would be ingracious not to sin.
Too bad monogamy went out the window in Washington. I didn't realize there was morality in the party. (or at the party for that matter).
No party has a monopoly on virtue/character.
