Vitter’s Vitriol

Jun 7, 2006 by

Gay marriage amendment carries new support – Yahoo! News “We’re building votes,” said Sen. David Vitter, R-La., another new supporter. “That’s often what’s required over several years to get there, particularly to a two-thirds vote.”

You know David Vitter was in my class at De La Salle back in the 80’s. We did not share many classes (I was in Advanced Placement,) but I knew him. Back then he struck me as a dumb jock with a sophomoric sense of humor and I see he has not progressed much. I guess it is not surpirsing that he is insecure enough in his masculinity to jump on the bandwagon for this divisive foolishness.
Why we are wasting time on attempting to push discriminatory BS like this when we have more pressing things, like rebuilding New Orleans and Violet and De LA Croix and Mereaux, on the docket is quite simply beyond me. Then again why Vitter is in office is beyond me as well.

Haven’t we as a nation had enough of the distraction tactics? Gay marriage, scary! Ooh look, a birdie! New Orleans needs to be rebuilt? Ooh look, a colorful birdie! Mississippi is blasted into the stoneage by Katrina? Ooh look, the colorful birdie is having gay sex! Americans have been abandoned on their own soil while the Feds consolidate their corrupt power grabs? Ooh look at the birdie *POW*, oh thanks Mr. Cheney…..

Absolutely disgusting.

EDIT: I think the following sums it up for me:

10 Reasons Why Gay Marriage is Wrong

01) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

02) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

03) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

04) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn’t changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can’t marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

05) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Britany Spears’ 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

06) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn’t be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren’t full yet, and the world needs more children.

07) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

08) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That’s why we have only one religion in America.

09) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That’s why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven’t adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

  1. Preach on, brutha Loki!

    Vitter defines tool. So much rebuilding in this state to campaign for in Washington and Vitter wastes our representation capital on this nonsense?

    Screw it, send Oliver Thomas.

  2. We did not share many classes (I was in Advanced Placement,)

    You have a fine left hook, bra.

    Hey Loki. Just found out about your blog on the Mike Malloy Show the other night–fascinating (if depressing) interview.

    One thing Vitter said (quoted at indicts him more than any of the ones you cited and linked to:

    “I don’t believe there’s any issue that’s more important than this one.”

    Now, I don’t know him from Adam, but really, that a Louisiana Senator would say this after the largest city in his state gets turned into a festering corpse-strewn pile of rubble and broken timbers, says all I need to know about him.

    God help you all while these cretins remain in power.

  4. You forgot to add the quote where Vitter said “There is no more important matter than this” Umm…..I could think of one or two…..

  5. Dale

    Ya know…it’s a real shame you didn’t clock him out like you did Harry Jr.

  6. I was (am am) a rather small person size wise. Vitter, even in high school, was a tall athletic type. I would have gotten pasted. As you may have read he seems to have a bit of a temper.

  7. I emailed the junior senator from Louisiana, and he replied, “I believe marriage to be a union between one man and one woman. The Marriage Protection Amendment removes the debate regarding the definition of marriage from the hands of the courts and judges and returns this decision to the American people, where I feel it belongs.”

    Okay, so what does Mr. Vitter think about Brown v. Board of Education? Perhaps the issue of racial segregation should be taken from the courts, too?

    What a maroon!



  8. Ah, a fellow Cavalier. There’s isn’t a better high school mascot in all of America–dressed in gaily feathered hat and tights, as he leaps like a ballet dancer–to bolster the developing identity of fragile teenagers in an all male environment.

    I think RHT should have flagged your quote about AP classes as the *funniest* quote of the day.

    Mark Folse, ’75

  9. Bwa ha ha ha! Fuckin’ David Vitter. It would be much funnier if we weren’t looking at the complete decline of our country, being sucked down into a morass of greed and hunger for power, our end first.

  10. Barnzey

    Loki, you graduated with a different “Vitter.” David graduated in ’79.


  1. Humid City v2.3 » Remove David Vitter From Office, NOW - [...] Okay, now you have gone too far. ( Thanks to Peter Dubuque for pointing this out in his comment…
