VIDEO: Reince Priebus gives David Vitter a pass because "that's a 5-year-old story."

Hey Reince, shut your Priebus.

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Rachel Maddow are the only two (women)-- at least who I have noticed, there may be others-- calling out David Vitter and the blatant hypocrisy of the Republican party.

Here is Rachel Maddow's excellent segment doing just that. Remember, Republicans are still donating money to David Vitter, and they are still self-righteous blowhards who claim to own the phrase "family values". Please watch and listen to all she has to say. It is spot on:

And here is today's Reince Priebus moment of whateveritwasheunsuccessfullytriedtosay:

"It's the policy, stupid"? More like, it's the hypocrisy, stupid.

According to Priebus, it's mandatory (!!) to force Anthony Weiner out of office, yet Vitter's sexcapades are water under the bridge. After all, they were so 5 years ago.

And Reince, heads up: Ensign resigned because he saw a big, scary, looming legal battle coming within days. He didn't exactly rush to exit until he realized there was no way to avoid that pesky Senate report saying he violated the law.

There was apparently more to Chris Lee's story, too, so he skedaddled as fast as he could before more sordid details could emerge.

No, the GOPlayers were not being noble or "doing the right thing." They were scared.

Reince Priebus: Hypocridiot-O'-The-Day.

    What's the statute of limitations on solicitation of sex in exchange for money in Washington D.C.? Can anyone take the video of his confession to the media to the police and report the crime? Why are we waiting for his buddies to do it, anyone here live in D.C?

    Reince Priebus gives David Vitter a pass because “that’s a 5-year-old story.”That's funny:   Bill Clinton's bj is an almost 15-year-old story -- but it's one the wingnuts never tire of using . . .

    Another thing that bristled me was Priebus saying that unemployment now (while quite painful at 9%) rivaled that of the Great Depression...in which 1 in 4 work-eligible Americans were out of work. What the MTP clip showed us was that DWS (and by extension the Dems) aren't going to take a moral road that the party won't take ourselves. That's more than I can say about Preibus and his.

    It makes it worse that they have supported this douchbag for five years, it shows a high tolerance for douchebags if they are repubs'
    Will they ever ask Tom Coburn to resign, after all he covered up and negotiated a settlement for Ensigns mistress, and what about Santorum who gave  Ensign the tip off that mistresses husband was going to spill the beans on Fox..
    Hell, they did not even ask Ensign to resign.
