Omnibus Spending Bill Showcases Republican Hypocrisy-- Take David Diapers Vitter


A whore and a porn star vie for Louisiana Senate seat

Stalwarts of the Grand Obstructionist Party were celebrating that 158 Republicans in the House (all but 16 of them) voted against the Omnibus Appropriations Bill, defeat of which would have shut down the government Friday night. And they're really excited that the Senate obstructionists have it tied up with a de facto filibuster. In both Houses the right-wing drama queens are shedding crocodile tears that the bill is too laden with pork for them to burden their beloved constituents with. As Yesterday's Hill pointed out, even the most bitter opponents-- they single out Louisiana whore-monger David Diaper Vitter-- have stuffed it with earmarks.
Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) and other Republicans are drawing criticism for sponsoring hundreds of millions of earmarks in the $410 billion omnibus that they themselves have blasted as fiscally irresponsible.

Vitter is the most obvious target because he holds himself a fiscal conservative, a position that often serves him well. In the midst of a heated debate over earmarks, however, Vitter finds himself ducking charges of hypocrisy.

The criticisms undercut the GOP’s weekend effort to frame omnibus as a Democratic Christmas tree.

“Even though Vitter has been styling himself as a fiscal conservative he has been more willing to team up with [Democratic Sen. Mary] Landrieu [La.] and belly up to the bar and take more than his fair share of earmarks,” said Steve Ellis, the vice president of Taxpayers for Common Sense, a group that tracks earmarks.

..."In a lot of ways he’s trying have his cake and eat it too,” said Ellis. “He talks about being fiscal conservative and then brags back home what he was able to deliver to the state.”

John Alyosius Farrell, Tip O’Neill’s biographer, singled Vitter out for ridicule on the Thomas Jefferson Street blog.

“The self-righteousness among Republicans on the issue of government spending is rank and overwhelming. The GOP is acting as if federal spending is a Democratic monopoly.”

Vitter has become well-known for the awkward way his serial affairs with prostitutes in New Orleans and Washington, DC came to the attention of the public. Some of the whores revealed intimate details about his perversions, like how he loves running around in a diaper, soiling it and then getting spanked for being a "bad boy." In fact his shenanigans have attracted primary opposition from some far right religious circles, including Family Research Council fanatic Tony Perkins, as well as from sharp-witted Baton Rouge porn star Stormy Daniels.

But Vitter is far more of a danger to Lousianans because of his financial misbehavior than because he's always chasing women. In fact when he's playing spanky in his diapers at least he's not in bed with lobbyists and special interests. Vitter has amassed vast sums of "donations" from corporations eager to buy his votes for their special interests. Lobbyists have given him $196,354, but that doesn't even begin to tell the story. He always supports Big Insurance and HMOs and opposes health care reforms. Those industries have bribed him with well over a million dollars since 2000. Oil & Gas pumped in another $529,385 and Real Estate $521,373. Investment firms and banksters have given him $854,706. It all adds up-- to one of the most corrupted voting records of anyone in the Senate. But Vitter is counting on an ill-educated electorate stewing in its own bigotry and prejudices, brainwashed by Vitter's loyal allies, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter. Bill O'Reilly and... more Limbaugh... endless Limbaugh, the face of today's Republican Party.

Gotta hand it to that little guy. He's got balls to be able to sit there, knowing that whenever people look at him they think dirty diapers.

And the hypocrisy, well, it's like after Basic Instinct we'd see paparazzi photos of Sharon Stone in a bikini. I mean, that guy can be caught with a home-made money printing machine while trying to sell weapons to North Korea and when he gets caught they'll say, "Wait, aren't you the guy with the dirty diapers?"

NICE little CNN video clip with Diapers Vitters connections to the Dead DC Madam and Stormy/LA politics. She looks smart enough.

Stormy was in the extra 17 minutes on the unrated "40 year old virgin" DVD.

Thanks Howie for The David Vitters Song.

I can't imagine what makes him think he can weather this, but it couldn't happen to a more deserving clown.
