I've written about GOP Senator David Vitter so often that I'm pretty sure-- due to my ingestion alone-- I've single-handedly increased the stock value of Tums, Pepto Bismol, and Alka-Seltzer. In fact, he sickens me so much that I dubbed him "the Vitter Pill," because he's just that. Hard. To take.
As you may recall, David Vitter favors corporations over sexual assault victims; he wants to defund Planned Parenthood; he was subpoenaed by the D.C. Madam and he (allegedly) has a diaper fetish. But despite his illegal sexcapades, the Republican party of "family values" has forgiven him for his sins and kept him in office.
Too bad they weren't as willing to be that generous with former President Bill Clinton, right? But that's another post for another time.
Right now, take a few seconds to watch this video. It tells you all you need to know about Senator David Vitter's so-called "values":
Here is the transcript of the words that oozed out of the mouth of David Vitter. He said them at a town hall meeting at Blanchard Elementary School on March 18, 2014, and-- wait for it-- he got applause. Grab the Pepto, here we go:
"I think the Koch brothers are two of the most patriotic Americans on the face of the Earth."
"... God bless the Koch brothers. They're fighting for our freedoms."
Or to put it another way, God bless Citizens United, the appalling influence of dark money, the demolition of democracy, and slime.
