More Republican Hypocrisy

In June, Tim Droogsma, a former press secretary to a US senator and a Minnesota governor, told the Star Tribune after reading its sex relationships column: "I don't think I'm too prudish -- which, I realize, is what prudes always say -- but do we really want this sentence: 'She hopped on my lap, facing forward. I pulled up her skirt in the back, slid her panties out of the way, and unzipped'?" (Editor's note: Actually, I'd love to read that sentence in my Startlegram and I think that would help solve some circulation problems ... and sell more papers. Ba-dum-bump! Thanks. I'm here til Thursday. Try the veal.)

Well, you see where this is going, don't you?

Droogsma was arrested this week in a midafternoon prostitution sting in St. Paul.

You'd think that eventually the Republicans would face fewer embarassing situations like this if they'd just learn to leave their superior morality out of politics. If Republicans didn't come out all the time and say that anything sex related is bad, then it probably wouldn't be such a big deal when something like this happens with a Republican. But since they're the "Party of Morals," incidents like this just serve to illustrate what hypocrites most of them (and to an extent all of us) really are.
