Letter to the Editor
When Republicans held control of Congress in the 1990s the had occasional sex scandals with prostitutes and fathering children out of wedlock. But by 2006 Republican morality had sunk to a new low with conservatives like Reverend Ted Haggard having gay sex on methamphetamines and Republican Congressman Mark Foley trying to have gay sex with underage boys.
But now Republican Senator David Vitter has publicly apologized after his phone number was linked to being a client of an alleged Washington prostitution ring. What this means is that Republicans are making a moral comeback, moving from gay sex with boys on drugs to adult heterosexual sex with female prostitutes. This shows that Republicans have reversed course and are now heading back in the right direction. If this trend continues they might start talking about getting out of Iraq and balancing the federal budget.
