    have used to highlight hypocrisy. David Vitter comes to mind. I gotta believe wearing a diaper is more humiliating than texting photos, and last I heard, prostitution was still illegal. So why is he still serving?

    Why do Democrats get hounded into resigning and Republicans somehow managed to not only stay in office, but run again -- and get elected!?!? I don't think it's the Jesus factor -- I think it's because Republicans are incapable of feeling shame. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I consorted with a prostitute while wearing a diaper, but I'm still doing good things like voting against funding Head Start programs and WIC... Vote for me!

    First the thing is impossible, then improbable, then unsatisfactorily achieved, then quietly improved, until one day it is actual and uncontroversial. ... It starts off impossible and it ends up done. - Adam Gopnik

      ...but the diaper business appears to be an internet urban legend.  Even the original source of the rumor has backed off and prefers to focus on the core issue of violating the law against prostitution.
