Lowering The Bar

NYT link

Senator Vitter, he of DC Madame list "fame", is now generally seen for the hypocrite that he truly is. Against abortion and gay marriage, it was his aim to maintain a "proper" societal morality. For everyone. Except himself.

And yet some still can't see the forest for the trees. Lowering the bar for expectations of those who would impose "high" standards on the rest of us is this individual:

In New Orleans, meanwhile, the madam of a high-priced brothel that was shut down by federal authorities in 2002 told a local television station, WDSU, that Mr. Vitter was one of her clients in the 1990s. The woman, Jeanette Maier, called him “one of the nicest and most honorable men I’ve ever met.” Mr. Vitter’s office did not immediately return a call for comment Tuesday night.

Apparently the term honor means little to his enablers.
