Does Mrs Vitter owe Hillary an apology?

I'm a lot more like Lorena Bobbitt than Hillary . If he does something like that, I'm walking away with one thing, and it's not alimony, trust me.

--Wendy Vitter, wife of Senator David Vitter (R-Louisana) (ABC News, 07/10/07)

Vitter Won't Explain D.C. Madam Link

<<snip>>

Standing alongside Vitter was his wife Wendy, who later took the mic and scolded the media for staking out her family.

"To those of you who know me, are you surprised that I have something to say?" Wendy Vitter said, not exactly smiling. A retort she once gave on marital infidelity during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, in which she likened herself to Lorena Bobbitt, has become infamous since the scandal broke.

"David is my best friend. I stand before you to tell you very proudly I'm proud to be Wendy Vitter," she said.

"Not to say this last week wasn't incredibly trying and very sad," she added. "Not for our marriage. Our marriage is stronger every day."

Wendy Vitter then turned the topic to the intense media coverage that will likely follow her husband to Washington. "Now let me speak to you as a mother. And I hope you will understand, it's been terribly hard to have the media parked on our front lawn and following us every day," she said, noting that reporters followed the family to church yesterday. She and the couple's four young children are staying in Louisiana, she said before asking the media to "let us continue our summer and our lives as we have planned."

1. Ya know, as I watched Wendy make her speech, all I could see was a
tough lady probably kicked her hubbys A** when se first found out about this! Yes, I heard what she said today, and I won't say I don't believe her, but she sure didn't look as confortable with David as Hillary looks with Bill!

I had all THOSE thoughts BEFORE I heard about her comment comparing herselt to Bobbitt!

This story isn't dead yet, as I'm sure David wishes it were!

2. Remember Don Sherwood(R) PA?
This reminds me of my former rep. Don Sherwood(R), when he allegedly beat up his "girlfriend", who was half his age. D.C. police and Capitol police both involved, but him and his wife wanted their privacy and seemed to have gotten it, as the story went away. But, HOORAY, we now have a Dem rep., Chris Carney.
