Wendy Vitter deserves the life she is leading.
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 11:43 PM by Bluebear
For her to march up to that podium today and declare her "family values" marital problems a "very private matter"... to play her and her husband as victims of the media and political foes ("they followed us to church!!!11).... and supposedly years AFTER hubby's hiring prostitutes time after time after time to declare the DEMOCRATS as "squashing our values"..... she is no better than he in the pandering hypocrisy department. I have no problem with her forgiving her "best friend" and deciding to keep her marriage intact. But to blame the Democrats for the loss of "values", to try to write into the U.S. CONSTITUION the law that gay couples (including thousands and thousands who do NOT hire hookers) cannot have legal, happy unions... Well, they deserve each other.


=====



In 2006, a political action committee (PAC) called Louisiana Committee for a Republican Majority (LCRM) was formed to begin planning for the 2007 elections. LCRM sent letters and e-mails to Louisiana Republicans (and Democrats who sometimes vote for Republicans) in mid-December to seek funding and support for the PAC. The letter was signed by Wendy Vitter, the wife of U.S. Senator David VitterR, Metairie. The letter explains the opportunity created by term limits and asks for contributions to meet a goal of $2.5 million that will be needed to be successful with the 2007 Republican blitz and to gain big PAC status.

This is our chance to take a stand and reclaim Louisiana from the incompetence and corruption of the old-school Democrat machine, said Mrs. Vitter. For as long as one can remember, they have controlled our state, raised our taxes, squashed our values, and squandered our future. But their days are rapidly coming to an end!

1. i don't feel bad for her at all
she needs to feel shame at not just what her husband did but at the type of hateful hypocritical person she is.

28. No wonder he turned to prostitutes.
She is very strange. Did you see Vitter's campaign ad in which his children eat breakfast, he makes a speech and then Ms. Vitter brings him the baby and says he needs to change the baby? Vitter even used diapers as an unseen prop in his campaign ads. What a strange situation.

13. Vitter blamed gay marriage for Hurricanes Katrina and Rita
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 11:48 PM by Bluebear
In October 2005, at a Lafayette Parish Republican Executive Committee luncheon, Vitter compared gay marriage to hurricanes Katrina and Rita, which came through the same geographical areas. Vitter said "It's the crossroads where Katrina meets Rita. I always knew I was against same-sex unions."

74. The David Duke connection.
Very little mention of this lately. David Vitter had to defeat David Duke to win his first term. David Duke (white supremacist, grand dragon of ku klux klan, for those who don't know) won 19% in a three-way finish that gave Vitter the divided win.

Kind of similar to the way Vitter won his senate seat.

Metairie is VERY conservative. David Vitter positions himself as a "kinder gentler" David Duke. Think about what that means.

12. Look Into the Mind of the Republican Woman...
As long as they are in power and doing alright...infidelity? Hypocrisy? They're down with that.

What galls me is that they wonder why we don't take them seriously.

"Do as we say, not as we do", doesn't engender respect.

Thanks for the welcome, you guys. Much obliged again.

Those Republican women-they scare me. It's like every R is drunk on power or lusting after it, and it leads to these creepy hollow men and those scary women who look like they're going to leap at your throat (the kind of atrophy that finds its acme in such women as Katherine Harris, for example).

I hate to pitch ad hominem, but they don't really even look human anymore.

24. Ms. Vitter now understands Hillary Clinton
Should Hillary become the Democratic candidate, Wendy Vitter's statement will be the perfect deterrent/defense against comments about Hillary's relationship with Bill. When Republicans say Hillary is phony because she sticks with Bill, we can just point to Wendy Vitter. I'd like to see Vitter's seat freed for a Democrat, but if it isn't, Vitter's staying definitely will have an up-side. Republicans can hardly say that Bill Clinton's past indiscretions mean Hillary lacks moral values if the Republicans keep Vitter in the Senate.

Personally, I could care less what Vitter whether Vitter had "sexual relations with that woman." But, I object to his hypocrisy. Same for his wife. I commend her for forgiving her husband. I think she should now apologize for having criticized Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Her pain was so raw.

But for the love of gods, what makes these people believe that using Bill and Hillary Clinton's marriage as chum for the sharks makes Republicans exempt from the same treatment? It was RW conservatives that started this holier-than-thou crap and got the MSM complicit in it -- why cry for mercy now?

No schadenfreude here.

87. She's definitely not happy to be there, and not happy with him.
The most bitter pill for her to swallow here, I think, is that she probably hoped when he first had to own up to this (just to her and to God), that it was over. Forgiveness, let's move on, that's in the past, blah-blah-blah. But NOW, it's erupted all over again, and worse - because it's come out in the public arena, instead of just between them in private. So she really more or less has to forgive him yet again - in public. She probably thought, at least for awhile, that the worst was over, at least it hadn't made the papers yet, at least nobody else knew about it and they could keep a lid on it so no one would know how badly she'd been shamed. Now, she's been PUBLICLY shamed, because EVERYBODY knows about it.

Now, her misery includes knowing that, every time she goes to the grocery store or to the airport or anywhere, people know HER now. People know her face, her hair, a little bit of her style of dress, and her public statements. They know HER, and it's because they know HIM AND WHAT HE'S DONE, AND THE EVEN ICKIER DETAILS in some cases. She knows every look in her direction is one of questioning, pity, scorn, disappointment, shock, judgmentalism, disgust. She knows she's the big car wreck on the freeway that everyone for miles is slowing down to oggle. She has a pretty good idea of what people are thinking when eye contact is made. She knows a great deal of what's being said behid her back, and her husband's back. She knows what a disgrace he is, and how that's overflowed onto her - even though she herself did nothing in this case. And she knows she's stuck with it, and she knows she's stuck with it because she's stuck with him. She was completely under the radar before. Nobody knew who the hell she was and didn't care, either, and nobody would recognize her if she was doing a fan dance in nothing but neon purple body paint in the middle of their dining room table. Now, she's front-page news - just because she's married to a hypocritical schmuck. There's nowhere to hide from the prying eyes and the judgmental views.

It's hard when you've been privately shamed. But those things come and go between husbands and wives, in private, and yes, it can at some point be gotten through and considered over. But it's been dragged up again and she's been shamed in public, and all the shit's been dredged back up for everyone everywhere to see.

All she can do at this point is hope she can wait it out til the short-attention-span-theater gets rolling again, and people forget. It's like the poor dupe who married that ted haggard sleaxebag. Her pain, too, is public, dragged out in the open for everybody to look at, poke at, sneer at. And it wasn't her direct wrongdoing either - it was hubby's but she got dragged down into the sewer with him.

An icky place to be. She should be sympathetic with Hillary. They share that public shaming. And frankly, Hillary handled it with quite a bit of class.

The one thing they can't do is snivel about how this is such a private, personal matter, when he was all over the Monica thing with a knife and fork and a bib tied around his neck. He who lives by the strumpet...

63. My thoughts exactly. She looks drugged.
I hope she comes to her senses and divorces him. That would be great.
Myabe she'll actually WAKE UP and realize what a bunch of horseshit all that "family values" stuff really is.

75. You didn't think this opinion was BEATEN into her?
It's very easy to criticize the wives of corrupt politicians for supporting their hubbies when they fall. "Sure," people say in places like DU, "she's just another whore. She married him for money, power and prestige, and she's keeping up a false front to retain as much of it as she can."

Did it occur to you that perhaps the woman is saying this "under duress?" Given that prostitution is basically slavery anyway, why should Vitter treat his wife any better than his rent-a-slaves? It's not unusual that the wife of a powerful man is threatened to shut her yap and obey - in fact, that's pretty much the way evangelical Christian wives are supposed to behave. (On a tangent, do you think the wives of Islamic suicide bombers are really that enthusiastic about their hubbies and children becoming bomb delivery systems?)

78. Bunch of Crap
NONE of my hooker friends are slaves. They would consider that the most arrogant, patronizing condescension on the planet. You're talking about street hookers and he didn't go to street hookers. I bet my friends make more money than you do.

Mrs. Vitter is 100% responsible for the garbage and the filth that comes out of her own mouth. If I ever read allegations that she is the victim of spousal abuse, I will reconsider my position. I have read nothing like that.

96. She is not "under duress"
If she was so oppressed, as you are insinuating, then she would never have said that she would go all Lorena Bobbitt on her husband if he ever cheated on her. That is not the thing a submissive wife would say.

The only reason that Vitter hasn't been cast aside like Foley is because the GOP can't afford to lose his seat. If the margin wasn't so close, he would have already been asked to resign.

106. Funny, when I saw the size difference, husband to wife, I sensed the beatings going the other way
It fits with his known proclivities.

She probably beats the shit out of him--hence the diapers.

sorry i don't agree, at the end of the day she is being paid beyond any dream i could have to sell her narrow little soul

if the vitters and those like them actually got what they deserved, it wouldn't be so bad, but it really hurts to see good people w. nothing and bad people walk away w. everything

i hope larry flynt comes out w. some pix

As for values - Democrats squashed her values? Did the Democrats diaper her husband at gunpoint and force him to hire hookers?
