Politics of Scandal

Republicans seem to be rather eager to throw Larry Craig under the bus for trying to get a hummer in a public restroom, which is only entirely appropriate.   But they haven’t been so eager to distance themselves from Senator David Vitter, who seemed to enjoy soliciting prostitutes.

Surely some will claim it’s because Craig is gay.  That might have something to do with it; I mean, we’re used to politicians and prostitutes, gay sex in public restrooms not so much.   But I think it probably has more to do with the fact that Idaho has a Republican Governor, and Louisiana has a Democrat Governor.  It’s funny how that works, isn’t it?   I think if Idaho were run by a Democrat, Republicans would quickly become OK with whatever Senator Craig wants to insert into his mouth.

  1. He plead guilty. He either broke the law or was railroaded by the law. Neither of those is acceptable from MY LAWMAKER.
    I don’t care about his sex life, if he disagreed with the laws HE should have tried to fix them. That is why I hired him.
    Yes he is my Senator.

  2. In the hierarchy of sex scandals, in ascending order of severity, I’d start with: 1) cheating on spouse, 2) pathetic sex chats with underage pages in chatroom, 3) cheating on spouse with prostitute, 4) cheating on spouse in restroom with stranger, 5) knowing that significant other is running prostitution out of house, 6) alleged rape, and 7) hearing that husband, chronic philanderer, might’ve raped someone and having others with nothing to gain from it backing it coming forward, and staying married in a sham marriage for power.

    But then again, I kinda make it up as I go.
