News: People like sex
I'm not quite sure what's the point of these high-profile prostitution busts - including the recent D.C. Madam case. Sure, there's always some well-deserved snickering directed at the hypocritical muckety-mucks who are fingered as customers (in this case, the Junior Senator from Louisiana), but it doesn't seem like anyone but the madam and the prostitutes ever get into hot water, which is sad.
It takes two to tango - if you're going to make sex a crime, it's strange not to charge both parties with wrongdoing. And, of course, there's no pressure from Republicans for Vitter to resign, since if he did so, a Democrat would likely be appointed in his place. As so often happens in history, when political power is at stake, all that morality crap goes out the window.
