Dowd on Rep Mark Souder (R-Ind), a "goober" who preaches sex-abstinence and couldn’t abstain from sex:
"The conservative Christian lawmaker is both morally and physically repellent. But he effortlessly benefits from Henry Kissinger’s dictum about power being an aphrodisiac. He had an affair with a younger babe who worked for his district office — “part time,” he ludicrously stressed. They had assignations in state parks and boat launches, and in a particularly delicious bit of hypocrisy, the pretty mistress even interviewed him on a promotional video about the importance of abstinence.
Another case of a family-values politician thinking he knows what’s good for everybody else but exempting himself."
So true. Look at those moralizing hypocrite Republican family values Senators Vitter and Ensign. Any family values Republican who thinks it's ok for them to still be there is just as much a hypocrite.
