According to Republicans Prostitution Must be OK

Have you noticed the virtual (by comparison to the Larry Craig fiasco) silence from Republicans on Senator David Vitter breaking the law? Vitter's phone number was found on the records of the D.C. Madam.

So why aren't the Republicans calling for Vitter to step down? There are many similarities between Craig and Vitter. Like Craig, a self-righteous Republican has committed the "sin" he rails against (going to a prostitute instead of gay sex in a public rest room). So he is a hypocrite. And both actions are against the law.

On the other hand, there are differences. Vitter did not plead guilty to the police, although he did basically admit to seeing the prostitute. And I guess the other difference is that Vitter claims that the transgressions happened before he was in Congress. But, really, the big difference to the Republicans is probably where Vitter stuck his dick, not when.

I guess the Republicans are okay with prostitution as long as it is of the heterosexual variety.

Explaining the Rise of Christianity

Here Comes Looney Bird Fred Thompson!

Even before Fred Thompson formally entered the 2008 White House race (which will supposedly happen Thursday, Spet 6, 2007), he aired his first television advertisement on Wednesday during a presidential debate he is skipping.

The lazy bastard won't join the debate, but will show a filmed (actor that he is) commercial entitled "Debate" during the debate. If this sad fucker actually wins the Republican nomination it'll be truly unfortunate... but it won't be all that surprising.

Faith Poll Results

I'd like to thank the folks who clicked over to The Serenity of Reason's religion/faith poll. I wanted to tak a moment to post the results of the poll (as of September 4, 2007).

You can see that we had 12 folks take the poll and that we are predominantly atheists and agnostics.

And to the one lone christian respondent, thanks for joining us.

In other news, Larry Craig has resigned (good riddance to that hypocrite) even though his children believe he is not gay (of course, they are an unbiased source). For an interesting read, try the transcript of his conversation with the officer that arrested him.

And maybe GWB is starting to feel the pressure from the Senate Democrats pushing to start withdrawing troops from Iraq.

All of this even though the GAO says that Iraq has failed to meet 11 of 18 benchmarks.
