Forgetting the past 8 years, cont.

'When it comes to politicians & hookers, the Weekly Standard sets a new standard for hypocrisy.' Below, they vent their outrage over Elliot Spitzer making the comeback trail:

“Not so long ago, when a politician was caught in bed with a whore, it meant not only the end of his political career, but extended exile from polite society. This was particularly true of politicians–Client No. 9, for example–who wore their virtue on their shirtsleeve.”

Phil Singer rightfully adds 'But... but... David Vitter!'

Not to mention Newt Gingrich, who's also trying to rehabilitate his image and get back into politics. Or John McCain, who also romped with hookers back in the day. Or Nevada gov Jim Gibbons, who also threatened to rape a cocktail waitress back in 2006 and is still serving as governor.
