My Name Is Vitter

Last week, while we were on vacation, Senator David Vitter came out of hiding and apologized to his supporters for his indiscretion in visiting with one the "D.C. Madam's" call girls.

That's not enough.

We could care less if Vitter consorted with prostitutes. (It is illegal, however, and should subject him to criminal prosecution.)

The problem is his hypocrisy. Indeed, with full knowledge that he was out there sinning away, Vitter made a public spectacle of attacking the morality of other individuals.

Like the feature character in the NBC television series "My Name Is Earl," Senator Vitter needs to go and individually apologize to each and every person whose morality he attacked. Only then does he begin to deserve the atonement Republicans already seem all too anxious to give him.
