Professional Porn Star Out, Amateur Porn Star Still In

What a shame. I was really looking forward to a debate between these two. Many of you likely didn’t take Stormy Daniels seriously, but I thought her press release announcing the end of her campaign shows her to be at least as thoughtful and intellectual as David Vitter. We need more dark horse candidates from non-traditional backgrounds (that’s all code for ‘porn stars’) running against Republicans, especially those who have had problems with keeping their Family Values credentials intact.

I wrote about this yesterday too, in the context of the ongoing fascination with Eric Massa. Outright hypocrisy from such traditional family stalwarts as Mark Sanford, John Ensign and David Vitter is just never going to be dealt with as harshly in the GOP caucus. For some reason, they seem to think that the public will give them a pass no matter what they do. Sadly, they appear to be completely correct thus far. Vitter’s number was found on a list from a notorious DC brothel, he confessed to the crime, it was disclosed that he actually like to dress up in diapers and be babied, and… he’s still a respected senator from Louisiana. Now, for $200, which respected New York governor was in almost the exact situation and found himself run out of town on a rail? If you answered Eliot Spitzer, the check is in the mail.

As I wrote, I don’t know what it would take to get the media to dig into these stories. With the public fawning over every single detail of the John & Kate gossip, why wouldn’t they go ga-ga for similarly juicy tidbits about David Vitter? I suppose we have come to expect this sort of behavior from politicians but that still doesn’t explain Vitter’s complete side-step of any consequences from his party. I guess this proves which camp walks the walk when it comes to tolerating indiscretions.

If the loss of Stormy Daniels has got you down, not to worry. We still have plenty of porn-politics to come, especially in NY. Kristin Davis, the madam who supplied Spitzer with women, is also running as a libertarian, with a platform of legalizing drugs and prostitution. It’s an interesting day in America when the porn stars sound more reasonable than the other candidates.
