Republicans have impeccable taste in silk stockings
Jeanette says that most of the clients who wanted to be dominated were Republicans. She cracks a smile, then adds, "They wanted to be spanked and tortured and wear stockings--Republicans have impeccable taste in silk stockings--and these are the people who run our country."
I don't know anything about the source for that quote, but it seems to predate the Vitter-in-diapers stories that started at Oyster's. I don't have much to add to the posting at Oyster's and NOLA-dishu, but I also wondered how old Vitter's children were when all of this started. Whether or not Vitter was wearing diapers himself, I had to wonder whether Vitter started visiting sex trade workers while his wife was sitting home changing diapers. Don't want to be the Alan Alda of New Orleans bloggers, but that would hardly sound like a decent guy to me.
Well, earlier this evening, a friend of mine told me that he met David Vitter once and was shocked at what a "blah nothing" Vitter was, since even the most air-headed politicians are usually charming in person. He met Vitter at a child's birthday party when his wife was taking their first child to I-to-I (infancy to independence). My friend's son was born in 1995, so it sounds like Vitter started seeing sex trade workers (if I'm going to do Alan Alda...) while his wife was home changing diapers. Yes, I know that can be a difficult time in marriages, but I wouldn't expect a decent guy who believes that preserving the sanctity of marriage is the most important issue facing the country to cut and run for a brothel when dirty diapers put a strain on his home life.
My friend also mentioned that Vitter built a big house on Metairie Rd. during this time. Vitter had a lot of expenses in the late Nineties and early aughts. Should there be questions about his income? I honestly don't know.
FWIW, that friend was a solid Republican prior to the George W. Bush presidency; it wasn't a biased impression against Vitter. Of course, Vitter may very well have been exhausted at the time.
