Schadenfreude Follow-Up

Of course it was a given that more juicy stories would come out of the release of phone records from D.C. Madam Jeane Palfrey, and somehow one knew that the more strait-laced, Republican, and outwardly pious a politician was, the more likely his phone number was on the list. That's why it's hardly a surprise to learn that Senator Vitter (R-La.) has confessed to "a very serious sin" in his past. Vitter bills himself as "a conservative who opposes radically redefining marriage, the most important social institution in human history," so naturally he would prefer to handle marriage the tradiational way -- by cheating on his wife with call girls.

Funny, isn't it, that so many of the Republican defenders of marriage are on their second or third wives or caught up in extramarital sex scandals. Oh, I know there have been equally guilty Democrats, but it's more fun when the Republicans get gored on their own stakes.
