Donnie jumped on me over at AoF for not having weighed in yet on the Vitter indiscretion, so I thought I’d share this via C&L.
You’ll remember the Senator’s statement: “This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible. Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God and my wife in confession and marriage counseling. Out of respect for my family, I will keep my discussion of the matter there — with God and them.”
He better be on his hands and knees groveling to his wife because she certainly has some strong opinions on the matter:
“In 2000, Vitter was included in a Newhouse News Service story about the strain of congressional careers on families. His wife, Wendy, was asked by the Newhouse News reporter: If her husband was as unfaithful as former President Bill Clinton, would she be as forgiving as Hillary Clinton?
“I’m a lot more like Lorena Bobbitt than Hillary,” Wendy Vitter told Newhouse News. “If he does something like that, I’m walking away with one thing, and it’s not alimony, trust me.”
LOL. For a guy who believes abstinence only is the best for of sex eduction (not to mention all the other draconian hypocritical measures Donnie points out he supports) he may be Senator Vasectomy before too long.
