The Vitter Scandal: Why Does GOP Go There?!

I was honestly trying to be nice regarding the sex scandal surrounding Senator David Vitter (R LA). Even after it was revealed that Vitter was a cosigner of the defense of marriage act (attendant with the standard hot air about the sanctity of marriage and how evil homo's are) and his wife was quoted in 2000 threatening to cut off his equipment if she were ever given the Hillary treatment, I was seriously trying to stay nice and just let him resign in shame... BUT then I read a story titled GOP official says Vitter should resign. (H/t therawstory)

The headline drew my interest so I clicked through to read the story and, to my absolute astonishment I read the following:
In the wake of U.S. Sen. David Vitter’s apology after his phone number turned up in an escort service's call list, a member of the Republican State Central Committee called for him to resign.

Vincent Bruno of Kenner said today that Vitter should resign “for his own good, the good of the party and the good of his family.” If he doesn’t resign, Vitter should “join the Democratic Party where they think that kind of behavior is OK.”
If I didn't know better I would have to think the Bruno is just trying to lob softballs to the Democrats. Bruno must be a Democratic plant in the leadership of the Louisiana GOP, and he's using Vitter in order to sic Democrats onto the sordid history of Republican hypocricy in regards to family values.

Ok then... Let me defend the Democratic party by going down the path which Bruno wanted to take. Let us simply consider the party Bruno is a leader in. The GOP is the party of Newt Gingrich, who carried on an extramarital affair even as he led the impeachment proceedings against Bill Clinton. Dan Burton was another impeachment leader, despite fathering an illegitimate baby. Henry Hyde also rabble roused for impeachment, before being exposed for having an affair that broke up a family when discovered.

Rudy Giuliani, the current front runner for the GOP nomination has been married 3 times, had multiple affairs while married, and is on film cross dressing while having Donald Trump feel him up! I mean seriously Mr. Bruno... why even go there?

<----The Front Runner For The GOP's Nomination For President Rudy Giuliani. The GOP Also Includes Vincent Bruno Of Louisiana.

Do I really need to continue? Mark Foley, Ted Haggard, Dan Livingston, Tom Delay... I mean even Strom Thurmond, the poster boy for pre civil rights segregation was diddling the 'colored' help when he was a young'n.

I'm sorry Bruno... you're really going to have to do better than claiming that some GOP Senator ought to be a Democrat because of his hooker troubles. If anything, with Bruno's attitude about wholesome goodness maybe he is the one who should switch parties.
