Ahh….summer in Washington. What comes to mind?
For those of you who don’t live here, you are probably thinking steamy hot humid days, air thick with mosquitos. And while you are certainly right about that, don’t forget about the other fabulous thing that inevitably happens in Washington every summer. You got it, right around the time when a steak knife couldn’t cut through the humidity and the heat has wired your hair for sound. You’ve officially given up on your hair.
But chin up buttercup.
The annual Washington sex scandal has arrived.
Sometimes it involves murder and a young professional girl, like Chandra Levy.
But ALWAYS ALWAYS it involves Members of Congress.
And that, dear kittens, is part of what makes the summer in Washington just that. Summer in DC.
And so, today we all awaken to the hilarious and torrid news of the DC Madam. We all heard about her a few months ago and we waited to hear the details on which Washington players were utilizing her, ahem, services.
But too much time passed and if you’re anything like me, you completely forgot about it.
And then today. When the air temperature is reaching 100 degrees, it’s waiting on the blogs for your pure joy.
My fav is the headline in Wonkette, “Louisiana Senator admits to screwing Hooker”
Isn’t life on the blog world grand? You can say whatever the hell you want.
But be sure to read the comments in reply to the Wonkette’s posting because they are equally as fascinating. If you are anything like me, you will find yourself wondering what the hell the Senator’s wife is thinking in all of this. And you will pray that she will NOT take a page out of gay former Governer McGreevey’s wife’s book and stand up next to him while he confesses his sins and begs for forgivness in front of all the network camera crews. In fact, you think she’s as patethic as him for doing that.
And so, fret not kittens, for the answer lies in a former interview Vitter’s wife gave, also available in Wonkette’s comment section and frankly, Vitter’s wife is my kind of gal, for publicly giving Lorena Bobbit a shout-out:
His wife, Wendy, was asked by the Newhouse reporter: If her husband were as unfaithful as Livingston or former President Bill Clinton, would she be as forgiving as Hillary Rodham Clinton?
“I’m a lot more like Lorena Bobbitt than Hillary,” Wendy Vitter told Newhouse News. “If he does something like that, I’m “If he does something like that, I’m walking away with one thing, and it’s not alimony, trust me.”
EXCELLENT! The trashy gossip rag lover in me hopes that this marital discord plays out for all of us to see. I hope she still has some of the Lorena pumping through her veins.
So read on kittens and find yourself amused. I, myself, started the day with my co-workers using phrases like “golden shower” and hearing “I’m always into stories about lots of hookers.”
Somehow I think it’s going to be my kind of day if it’s starting off like this.
And what is it about the steamy hot Washington summers that make it ripe every year for a sex scandal with Members of Congress? I mean, can anyone forget the Washingtonienne?
I never could spell that word, btw.
And what is it about Senators and other Members? Will they EVER be able to keep it in their pants? And learn that it’s all going to come out? We’re all going to air their dirty laundry on some impossibly hot July day?
I was going to blog on Michelle Obama again today and her announcing that as first lady, she’ll be investing in the plight of working moms.
Senators screwing hookers. Come on. Way more fun.
