"Vitter, 46, then became Louisiana’s first Republican senator since the end of Reconstruction, and has built a reputation as a solid conservative, opposing abortion rights, same-sex marriage and gun control. Last month, he took a leading role in efforts to kill the comprehensive immigration overhaul bill.
In 2000, Vitter was included in a Newhouse News Service story about the strain of congressional careers on families.
His wife, Wendy, was asked by the Newhouse News reporter: If her husband was as unfaithful as former President Bill Clinton, would she be as forgiving as Hillary Clinton?
“I’m a lot more like Lorena Bobbitt than Hillary,” Wendy Vitter told Newhouse News. “If he does something like that, I’m walking away with one thing, and it’s not alimony, trust me.”
“I think fear is a very good motivating factor in a marriage,” she added. “Don’t put fear down.”
Oh, my. Alimony or sliced baloney. What a dilemma the Vitters are on the horns of.
Personally speaking, Mrs. Vitter, I never discount fear as a motivator, but apparently you just weren't taken seriously by your whore-mongering husband.
Who's going to take responsibility for hiding the knives in this God-fearing household? Their children?
One may think it apropos at this moment to express brotherly empathy for a fellow man's impending emasculation, yet given that Vitter doesn't give a damn about the private parts of 150 million American women for whom he has repeatedly voted to deny anything resembling reproductive or contraceptive freedom, I would merely take this moment to suggest to the junior Senator from Louisiana how much it must suck to have someone else tell you that they, not you, own your body.
