A Parliament of Whores

Holy crap. It's looking more and more like the rumors about Duke Cunningham's fact finding missions into the world of D.C. prostitution are true and, what's more, there might be as many as a half dozen other congressmen implicated as well.

Daily Kos has the complete rundown.

Update: This just gets better and better. There are rumors swirling around that CIA Director Porter Goss was involved. I'm not exactly convinced by these, but as Peggy Noonan once said: "Is it irresponsible to speculate? No, it would be irresponsible not to speculate."

Update II: Just when you think it can't get any better, Digby speculates that these weren't just wild congressional sex parties, but wild congressional gay sex parties. I'd forgotten about the Dukestir's backstory. Suddenly Jeff Gannon makes a lot of sense. (By the way, I'm hereby trademarking the phrase "Suddenly Jeff Gannon" for the inevitable sitcom that'll result from all this.)

Bring it on. If it takes sex to focus the media and public attention on the mofos, then so be it.

Sadly, that's what gets the media and the public interested. If only we can get J. Lo involved in some way.

I'm sure that title is a quotation from somewhere. Probably somewhere hip. Therefore, I reject it.

Gotta say, I'm pretty saddened that Sideshow Bob hasn't chimed in with a "I thought the cop was a prostitute." line. You've changed, man.
