Representative Livingston AND David Vitter? Both politicians from LA. That story is on Nightline tonight!Livingston is of course the Rep. who was to become Speaker of the House when he abruptly resigned due to a sex scandal!

1. have you ever seen the movie The People vs Larry Flynt?
I don't want to make a "folk hero" out of Flynt. Basically, he started out as a guy who just wanted to make money and saw he could do it by selling sex. But, along the way, he did see the hypocrisy of others trying to keep him from making his money. And, he made it a life-long battle to point out that hypocrisy.
I respect him for that. I don't respect him for much of anything else, but I respect him for that.

8. At least he tells the truth about what he does. He does not lie

2. I'm wondering why there haven't been more hypocrites named?
The DC Madam said there were quite a few, didn't she?
