“Diaper Boy” for Gov?

GOP Louisiana Sen. David Vitter is running for governor.  You’ll recall that Vitter was implicated in the DC Madam prostitution scandal, and he confessed, with his wifey beside him looking miserable, that “mistakes were made.”

But that wasn’t the end of it.  When his patronage of DC prostitutes became public, his hometown hookers in New Orleans spoke out, and said that he preferred to let the good times roll while wearing a diaper.  Yes, people, a U. S. senator, now running for governor, managed to creep out the prostitutes in New Orleans.

Oh, and here’s a further fun fact for you — Vitter has done a campaign ad featuring him changing one of his children’s diapers.

A Gentle Reminder That Perversion Is Bipartisan

Whatever happens to Keith Olbermann (and I think we all know his upcoming stint on ESPN will end badly), I will always remember fondly that when Sen. David Vitter (R-SC) was caught up in his prostitution scandal back in 2007, Olbermann would quickly and quietly mutter “diaper” when referring to the Palmetto Perv.

Vitter was named in the DC Madame scandal, but then it emerged that just as members of Congress have homes both in DC and their states, Vitter had ho’s both in DC and back home.  And he managed to stand out among his brothel’s clientele in New Orleans because he liked to let his good times roll while wearing a diaper.  Yes, he managed to shock NOLA prostitutes in how he preferred to be “Pampered.”

And if you think things couldn’t get weirder, let me add that when Vitter was running for Senate, one of his ads showed him changing one of his kids’ diapers.

I bring this up because last night MSNBC’s Melissa Harris Perry was talking about Vitter’s bill banning a federal bailout for Detroit (no one is proposing such a bailout, but that never stops the party from the alternate universe), and she referenced his “unlawful and, shall we say, infantile infidelity.”

More subtle than Keith, but much appreciated anyway.

So make your Weiner jokes, GOP, but don’t forget that members of both parties can be equally bizarre and creepy when it comes to their members.

GOP — “Job Creators” for Prostitutes

From “Strip clubs, prostitutes don’t expect much of a business boom from Democratic convention,” Callie Moran, Capitol Hill Blue:

While the sex and pornography business thrived in Tampa during last week’s Republican convention, strip clubs and escort services in Charlotte don’t expect much of an increase during the Democratic confab in their city.

“Democrats aren’t so upright about sex so they don’t have to sneak around and pay for it,” Connie Allerton, a sexual therapist, tells Capitol Hill Blue.  ”If a Democratic delegate wants sex, he or she will just  seek it with another delegate.”

A telephone survey of escort services in the Charlotte area finds no plans to bring in “extra talent” to serve the Democrats when they come to town this week.

“Honey, it’s business as usual,” says Danielle, who answered the phone at Uptown Cabaret in Charlotte.

In Tampa, escort services brought in “talent” from Miami and New Orleans to handle increased business and some services told Capitol Hill Blue they were booked solid during the convention.

But a spokesman for Charlotte VIP Escorts said they had “plenty of openings” for the week.

“Looks like a normal week,” said a woman who answered the phone but refused to give her name.

So much for the GOP “family values” hypocrites when the media aren’t watching.


While Secret Service agents may not have broken Columbian law by hiring hookers (Columbia has “zones of tolerance” for prostitution), they did violate their own Secret Service rules.  Also, for married agents, hiring hookers violates the terms of their top-secret security clearances.

The interesting (and weird) thing is that what got them into trouble is that their hotel had a policy requiring “visitors” to leave by 7 A. M.  The brouhaha began when the hotel manager went to an agent’s room because a prostitute was still there past 7.  The police were called because the agent refused to open the door.

Dumb behavior, followed by dumber behavior.
