The Morals of the Right

The story of right wing extremist Louisiana Senator David Vitter story is outside Skeeterville, but is is a perfect example of what is wrong with the conservatives in America.

Vitter likes hookers. We know that because he patronized them. However, he likes to talk about OTHER PEOPLE's morality.

If you want to talk about morality, you need to act morally. Vitter fails that test completely.

The quote of the day comes from Vitter (courtesy Politicalwire.com):

"I think Livingston's stepping down makes a very powerful argument that Clinton should resign as well and move beyond this mess."-- Then-Rep. David Vitter (R-LA), quoted by Think Progress, after replacing Rep. Bob Livingston (R-LA) who "abruptly resigned after disclosures of numerous affairs" in 1998.

Vitter is right. It is time for Vitter to resign.

I've noticed these idiots don't resign anymore, they just wait for people to forget their "sins".
