The TBoggy sordid details:
[Republican] Louisiana Sen. David Vitter apologized Monday for his telephone number showing up on the old phone records of Pamela Martin and Associates, the alleged prostitution ring run in the nation's capital by Deborah Jeane Palfrey.
My favourite part:
"Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God and my wife in confession and marriage counseling. Out of respect for my family, I will keep my discussion of the matter there --with God and them."
You know, you'd think that if God took the time to put Vitter's mind at ease after the fact, he might have bothered to show up before this whole thing started -- to nip it in the bud, so to speak:
"Um, Dave? Are you sure you want to be doing this? I mean, there's a reason I gave you those Ten Commandments? You remember the Ten Commandments, right? I didn't just do that for the intellectual exercise, you know."
God: When it's a lot easier to ask for forgiveness than to be told "No!" right up front.
