  •  This story hasn't got nearly the press it would (7+ / 0-)

    if Ensign had been a Democrat.  Then again there isn't Democrats really pushing the story like Republican politicians would be.  

    Spitzer is caught in a call-girl ring and resigns, Vitter is cought in diapers with prostitutes and will probably be re-elected.  Why the double standard?  Or is it that Republicans simply don't have any standards? You'd think they'd have forced Vitter out knowing they'd replace him in ruby red Louisiana.  I mean if he runs and is re-elected what does that say about the party?

    •  i wonder (0+ / 0-)

      if Spitzer looks at Mark Sanford, Ensign and whoever else has gotten caught in the last year and stayed in government and thought, damn what did I do the worst that could have happened is I would have been voted out of office.

      •  I'd love to see Obama give Spitzer a watchdog (2+ / 0-)

        role, but it will likely never happen or be politically feasible.  Spitzer was on to the Banksters, but didn't keep his nose clean, so when they went looking for dirt on him they found it.
