A person’s sexual proclivities are a private matter and rarely relevant to his or her professional abilities–unless that person pushes his values on others and doesn’t practice what he preaches. That’s the position of Republican Louisiana Senator David Vitter, just the latest “clean-as-a-whistle champion of family values” to get caught with his hand in the . . . (let me rephrase that) . . . to have his phone number found in the D.C. Madame’s little black book. Vitter, who who “opposes radically redefining marriage, the most important social institution in human history,” acknowledged his call-girl relations as a “very serious sin in [his] past.” This is bad news for Rudy Giuliani–another born-again moral hypocrite–because Vitter was liaison to the south.
Next stop, pastoral counseling and rehab* for sex addiction? That’s what the playbook calls for.
