How Convenient: Cheatin' Louisiana Sen. Vitter Forgets Threats to Marriage

GOP hypocrisy update, courtesy of Talking Points Memo:
David Vitter (R-LA), the champion of social conservatism whose career became mired in the D.C. Madam prostitution scandal of 2007, has a new fundraising letter that warns of the liberal/socialist threats on a whole range of issues -- though one particular item is mysteriously missing.

The letter warns of the threat posed by Democrats on such issues as abortion, union card-check, the dreaded Fairness Doctrine to eliminate conservative talk-radio, and big liberal spending.

This sentence sums it up: "The left-wing blob of trial lawyers, union bosses, environmental zealots, abortion activists, socialists and gun grabbers along with the Washington Democrat establishment have already trained their sights on me."

But there is one issue that we're used to seeing from conservatives like Vitter, which doesn't show up at all: Protecting the sanctity of marriage.

Irrelevant to this blog item, but here's a great argument for an armed populace in the Tulsa World today:

Tulsa victim hit by hatchet, shoots suspect

As one of the commenters put it, "Greatest.....story.....evar!"

More relevant:

The same thing happened with Bill "Book of Virtues" Bennett several years ago.

Bennett righteously railed against practically every sin under the sun, but conveniently left out gambling. He was found to have dropped around 8 million dollars himself in high stakes gambling.

These guys may be massive hypocrites, but they aren't totally stupid!
