Karl Rove has company

Like Karl Rove earlier this week, Senators Larry Craig and David Vetter are practicing the art of irony…

The two senators are naming themselves as co-sponsors of S.J. Res. 43, the Marriage Protection Amendment that, if passed, would amend the Constitution to declare that marriage “shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman.”

Did we mention that both senators have been implicated in extramarital sexual activity?

Vitter was identified as a client of a prostitution firm owned by the late Deborah Jeane Palfrey, aka ‘The DC Madam.’

Craig was arrested in 2007 on charges of lewd conduct in a Minneapolis airport terminal for attempting to engage in sexual activity with a male undercover police officer.

His arrest and plea became public two months later. At that time, Craig attempted to withdraw his plea and enter a new plea of not guilty. To date, his efforts have been denied by the courts

I still love irony… especially when it’s a two-fer of self-righteous conservatives with sexual skeletons in their closets.
