Vitter Claims There's 'Enormous Difference' Between His Case and Spitzer's, Really?

-by matter, New Orleans, LA

It's remarkable, when you think about it. In New York, Mr. Spitzer was tarred, feathered, driven out of office, and now nearly forgotten. Yet Louisiana's, Senatorial Pimp, David "Eliot Spitzer" Vitter, is still in office. Fortunately, the recent attention given Mr. Spitzer has renewed interest in Mr. Vitter's case.

A quick recap: Vitter's number was found in the records of the "DC Madam" and locally, he plied his tiny cock frequently in the French Quarters at $300 an hour.

It all came out. Thanks, Larry!

After hiding out in his house for a week, Vitter made a short statement with his wife by his side, refused to take questions, and since then, his official line has been that "he has addressed this matter" already when of course, he hasn't said a damn thing.

But people haven't forgotten. Searching for the truth is a powerful instinct, and Vitter was forced to respond recently during a telephone conference call. (Vitter has resorted to these "telephone conference meetings" as he has cut back his public appearances to safe redneck districts.) A caller asked about the Vitter/Spitzer comparison; Vitter claimed there was "an enormous difference" between himself and Spitzer.

One could make endless comparisons of the specifics, in terms of who did what, where; how much they paid, or what laws were allegedly violated. These are the usual sort of technicalities offered in Vitter's defense.
