Are Republicans irony impaired?

Or maybe it is me. But it strikes me as funny when someone like David Vitter talks about "conservative values."
"I'm on the side of conservatives getting back to core conservative values," said Mr. Vitter, Louisiana Republican and member of the Senate Armed Services Committee
No word on if those Conservative values explicitly include hookers.

In all seriousness, this is what the conservative church created by making their deep, and personal faith a political commodity. They then get people like this idiot masquerading as a "family values" person. Actually, it has brought them a lot of idiots. Voinovich isn't wrong. The south and the religious right has turned the Republican party into the party of the brainless.

I think there is something about hookers in the old testament....

If I had to guess, he probably means fiscal conservatism.

Steve, I suspect you are right. He is still a giant weasel who also still speaks out on moral values.

At least "fiscal conservatism" when it comes to Democratic project proposals. The so-called fiscal conservatives were awfully quiet when we were running up a trillion-dollar tab in Iraq.

I am not all that familiar with him. A lot of Republicans are comfortable with pork spending and funding for wars. Some conservatives were never comfortable with this and critical of this direction.
