From the Christian Post:
A conservative Christian group sent Louisiana Senator David Vitter, who in 2007 confessed to using the services of a high-profile prostitution ring, a letter Monday calling on him to follow former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner’s lead and resign.
Several Democratic leaders, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, had called for Weiner’s resignation.
Unlike Weiner, Vitter, who admitted to “serious sin” in 2007 after his number was disclosed by the alleged prostitution ring “D.C. Madam,” never faced the same pressure from fellow Republicans to resign following his scandal.
In the letter, Joe Glover, the president of the Family Policy Network, based in Forest, Va., said Republicans are “committing outright hypocrisy” as long as Vitter stays in office, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reported.
“There are a lot of people that I think are committing outright hypocrisy and are forced to do so as long as he (Vitter) remains in office,” said Glover.
“I don’t think the senator should put those folks in the untenable position of having to pragmatically defend his presence in the Senate.”
Family Policy Network plans to publish an article on its website tomorrow that reads, “So what did Republican leaders do about Senator Vitter? They let him off the hook.”
On the day Weiner said he was stepping down, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly was asked about his views on Vitter’s case.
“I don’t think Vitter should be there. Absolutely not,” O’Reilly responded.
Over the weekend, Andrew Breitbart, a conservative blogger whose work helped bring down Weiner, also commented on Vitter, saying he was “not a fan.”
“I tend to think all these guys who behave this way put themselves in a position to be blackmailed,” said Breitbart told a Netroots Nation activist.
I don’t know why everyone is so worried about the blackmail and ridicule factor when it comes to
Diaper David Vitter. I, for one, have nothing but respect for the guy, and I’m shocked by the reaction.

My eyes are scarred by the chest hair baby. Ewwww. 😯
Now, Republicans…Vitter is what I expect.
you wound me, m’liss. i tried so hard to make that chest hair look authentic. 😥
You did! It was too authentic. Vitter is just nasty. Him in a sexual context will always be cause for blowing chunks.
P.S. Rockin title. 😀
he needs some babyscaping. he really is nasty. that’s why he had to pay women to diaper him and otherwise service him.
p.s. thanks! 😀
Ya know, what kind of twisted fuckery crusts a brain over so that being diapered is a turn on?????? It’s too gross. Too gross!
maybe it’s not a turn-on. maybe he’s too damned lazy to get up and go to the bathroom. or maybe he gets so enthusiastic that he sprays all over the place, and the hookers demand that he wears a diaper. see how i always give him the benefit of the doubt?
Bllllleeechhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. You made it grosser. 😯
i told frank before that making him laugh meant my work here was done. i was wrong. i made it grosser. now my work here is done. 😉
You know, I’ve wondered about that, too, but I really didn’t want to ask.
I know about diapers … I see nothing sexy about them, by any stretch of the imagination. I don’t see how any even-remotely-well-adjusted person could find diapering to be a turn-on.
it’s not the diapers themselves, i don’t think. not to make everyone nauseous, but the diaper is probably part of a larger scenario, where didy dave is treated as though he’s a helpless little baby. i guess the vulnerability as well as the total lack of control or responsibility is the thrill. i think didy dave likes to be dominated. it looked to me as though the wife is the one who wears the pants in the family. good thing one of them does.
Oh geez, I hate it when a diaper is left on for that long. It’s really nasty to change.
and just like too many people in congress, that diaper is loaded!
With all the efforts to screw people with Medicare, it’s hard to believe who Vitter and Weiner may have screwed matter…
it doesn’t matter at all, but as long as the rethugs are going to play this stupid game, then dems had better play it, too.
I’m laughing so hard at the images, I can barely type this!
i have to admit that i recycled (and in most cases, hopefully, improved) a bunch of old stuff i have. i’m glad that the nonsense made you laugh, frank. my work here is done. 🙂
“Butt paste”? Where in the name of all that’s holy (and all that isn’t) did you find a product like “butt paste”? Lord, it brings back bad high school memories of pranks involving toilet seats and crazy glue! 😀
Ah, yes, another round of “don’t do as I do, do as I say”. Do a hatchet job on the Dem, but let the GOPer slide. No wonder I gave up on the GOP many years ago.
“Butt paste”! I’m gonna be snickering for the rest of the week, probably at the wrong times. If the wife backhands me, YOU get the dentist’s bill! 😉
it’s been a while, but i think i had googled diaper rash ointment or something close to that. i had never heard of butt paste before that, but as soon as i saw that, i knew i had what i was looking for. here’s a funny little tidbit–i did a search in photobucket in order to find the butt paste image (because i’m so unorganized, and i had forgotten where i saved it on my computer), and i got their standard message:
Photobucket DOES NOT host sexually explicit content
they consider butt to be sexually explicit. i got that same message when i tried to use ‘dick cheney’ as a tag so i could find pictures more easily. they don’t allow the name dick to be used. it’s so stupid.
“Photobucket DOES NOT host sexually explicit content”
Not if they can help it. I once found porn in an account there. It managed to stay there for a week. I eventually got around to reporting it.
they deleted 2 of my pics. i have no idea how they found them. one was this one. i uploaded it again, and they left it there, so i guess their little spies didn’t see it the second time. however, when i tried to upload the other one again, they deleted it again. this is the first one (scroll down to sedond pic), and this is the second (scroll down to the second one). i still can’t understand what is so offensive in the second one that they went after it twice.
Wow Nonnie you’ve outdone yourself, a whole gallery of photoshop wizardry, Bravo!
but I’m not buying the Wingnuts getting their diapers in a twist years after the fact and Breitbart taking the high moral ground (!!!)… just more distraction and obfuscation from the real evil that’s being perpetrated.
edgylah (yiddisher nom de comment)
i spelled it edgyleh last time, but i was never very religious. 😉
i don’t think most of the wingnuts have their dydies in a wad, but this conservative religious group does, and that means something. if nothing else, it’s ammunition if the rethugs try to use ‘the party of anthony weiner’ to try to denigrate the dems in the next election.
as for breitbart, he’s a lying hypocrite, too. he has never stalked a rethug in order to embarrass him/her into resigning.–nonnieleh (nom de reply)
Breitbart is just a glorified internet troll. I’ve seen his like before, lots of times.
not just an internet troll. he’s a paid operative of faux news and, indirectly, the rethuglican party. he’s one of roger ailes’s foot soldiers. the most disgusting thing is that cnn gives him facetime. i used to watch cnn all the time. now, i never do. when they put erick erickson on the payroll, that was the last straw.
Ewwwwww somebody’s stinky & needs to be changed.
Vitter actually broke the law– so what;s the damned deal?
He should not be allowed to stay in congress.
even if someone changes him, he’s still going to be stinky. i think it’s a no-brainer. even if he wasn’t prosecuted, he admitted to the world that he broke the law.
What I meant by “changed” is out of office- as in “You’re fired”
it would smell better in d.c. immediately.
My favorite part of the news coverage is the old news conference where the totally loyal I’m-by-your-side wife does those facial expressions that only a woman can truly understand. Can any of our raisin women give insight to what they mean? (all I can deduce is she trying to decide on a straight razor or poison)
in the case of mrs. vitter, the look on her face said i cant believe i have to sleep with this multi-chinned asshole just so i can tell people i’m a senator’s wife. i’d better make this devotion act crap look good for the cameras, or he’ll be home a lot more.
I feel nauseated. Yeah – WTF? Vitter gets a pass? Bring it, Family Policy Network – start the buzz and let’s get rid of this creep.
any organization that says it stands for family values that doesn’t get on the bandwagon to get rid of vitter should be disqualified from ever commenting on any other scandal again.
First time at your blog – and the picture startled me. Why does the GOP stand by this a-hole? Because they all think they are above the law and are justified in anything they do. Booner has said, “The number one goal is to make Obama a one term president” , even if that means breaking the law or destroying the country.
I really liked the blog – it did make me laugh.
hello fred. or is it hello jed? maybe i should make it one word, like brangelina. oh wait, that’s not gonna work, is it?
whichever of you it is, welcome to the raisin! 😀 i hope you weren’t too startled to be scared away from visiting in the future.
i was going to listen to your broadcast, but it said in the beginning that it’s for mature audiences, so i was disqualified. 😉 actually, i did listen, and it was very entertaining.
Wow. And it only took them four years to get around to it?
That’s amazing! It’s almost enough to make me think that some of these groups do care about holding Republicans accountable, too.
Not quite, but almost …
By the way, great title and good work on the images. More than a little scary, but good work.
Now, if these groups will turn on other adulterous Republicans with anything like the rancor they find for Democrats, maybe they’ll start to be credible. I mean, even with this, they still host Gingrich, Ensign, etc..
I’m glad to see these groups finally speaking up about Vitter, but it really rings hollow amidst their other waves of silence and vocal support for reprobates on the Right.
i agree that the silence up until now has been deafening. i really wish that, unless a political (or any other profession, for that matter) breaks a law or hurts another person (i don’t mean relationship-wise), their private lives were their own. of course, if they’re getting wined and dined by special interests, that’s something that must be disclosed. if they’re being totally hypocritical, that’s fair game, too. however, if it’s just a matter of a personal screw-up, it should be off-limits.
This just in:
The May 23, 2011 letter Sen. Vitter sent a letter to Secretary Salazar states that he intends to block legislation granting the secretary’s pay raise until the Department of Interior began issuing six permits for new deepwater exploratory wells each month. The Vitter letter states:
Last Friday, I was asked to support legislation in the Senate to grant you a nearly $20,000 salary increase. Given the completely unsatisfactory pace of your department’s issuance of new deepwater exploratory permits in the Gulf, I cannot possibly give my assent.
[W]hen the rate of permits issued for new deepwater exploratory wells reaches pre-moratorium levels (so 6 per month), I will end my efforts to block your salary increase.
The federal bribery statute makes it a crime to offer anything of value to any public official with the intent to influence any official act. Sen. Vitter’s offer may constitute a bribe.
The brilliant and glamorous Melanie Sloan of CREW has filed an ethics complaint against Sen. David “Diaper Boy” Vitters.
CREW, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington has asked the Senate Select Committee on Ethics to investigate Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) for bribery.
The complaint stems from a letter Sen. Vitter sent to Ken Salazar, Secretary of the Department of the Interior, threatening to vote against the secretary’s pay raise unless and until the department begins issuing new deepwater exploratory permits.

Maybe Vitter will get the boot after all???
i’m a little uncomfortable with the bribery angle. i don’t think they can make a case, and it might look to some people as though they’re piling on, no matter how small the offense. it would have been enough to embarrass vitter about the letter. i don’t want him to ever become a sympathetic character. i think it’s more effective for religious groups to pummel him. they’ll open the eyes of conservatives and fundies. crew will only piss them off, and those are the people that have to be convinced.
