Conservative Family Values

The Conservative Family Values that are embodied, as we're told, by the Republican party, seem to include prostitutes now.

Duke Cunningham, the former Republican representative from San Diego who has already been convicted of accepting $2.4 million in bribes, might have been dabbling into hookers on lobbyists dimes as well.

Awesome, huh?

Read that article in the Post. It's hot stuff. I wonder how many scandals like this can happen before people stop with that "Conservative Family Values" nonsense. Politicians, conservative and liberal alike, are generally whores. The ones that are embedded in politics (as the Duke was) are the worse. The new blood isn't so bad, I suppose.

In the immortal words of Obi-Wan Kenobi, "They are only interested in those who fund their campaigns."

We need to find out if there are any other escort services that service our elected officials. Maybe reporters should get off their duffs and find out about who's paying for it and who's receiving it.
