has Vitter been emasculated?

Compare and Contrast:
"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, when asked by an interviewer in 2000 whether she could forgive her husband, Sen. David Vitter, if she learned he'd had an extramarital affair, as Hillary Clinton had done.

"This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible," Republican Sen. Vitter (La) said in a statement yesterday after his telephone number appeared among those associated with an escort service operated by the so-called "D.C. Madam." "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. But I certainly offer my deep and sincere apologies to all I have disappointed and let down in any way."

So either one of them is lying about forgiveness, or he had to give some "consideration" in exchange for Wendy's continued support. And I think you know what I am talking about without me spelling it out for you.

Are you saying he has to pony up for a lifetime membership to the Chippendale's club for his wife?

I find the irony particularly comical that it's another "Family Values Republican" who's in trouble with his ... personal junk.

However, I heard on the radio that in Louisiana, being in this kind of trouble is almost expected from their public officials.

I was joking about castration, not lap dances.

While Lousisiana polls are known for their philandering. Gov. Edwin Edwards said "[I could not lose unless I was] caught in bed with a dead girl or a live boy." But Vitter campaigned on "family values"
