The Family Values Party...

Mark Sanford: Was bankrolled by his rich in-laws and multi-millionaire wife. Called for Clinton's resignation regarding MORAL failures because Clinton cheated on his wife. Sees it differently now that he's in the cross-hairs and is rambling on about Besheba and David therefore it was OK that he did it too.

John Ensign: Another "family values" Republicans. Cheated on his wife with a staffers wife. He bought his peace by quid-pro-quo job placement for the cuckolded husband.

Vito Fossella: Ended his re-election bid after a drunk driving arrest leads to the revelation that he has had both an affair and a child with another woman.

Bob Allen: The co-chair of McCain's 2008 Florida campaign, is arrested for offering an undercover cop $20 for the privilege of performing oral sex on him. He later says he was afraid of becoming a "statistic," as he thought the black cop was a mugger. Was conviced anyway. Allen previously advocated keeping gay couples from adopting children and applying stiffer penalties for lewd acts.

Glenn Murphy Jr.: President of the Young Republican National Federation who advised GOP-ers to use gay marriage as a wedge issue, is accused of trying to perform oral sex on a sleeping 22-year-old man. In 1998, a young man had filed an uncannily similar report against Murphy.

Larry Craig: Pled guilty to lewd conduct for soliciting sex in a men's bathroom.

David Vitter: Another Clinton basher, Vitter has an apparent passion for wearing diapers when visiting prostitutes.

Randall Tobias: Bush's Global AIDS Coordinator who spoke out against prostitution (and condom use, for that matter), resigns from the State Department after he is linked to an escort service.

Ted Haggard: Evangelical, gay-bashing pastor who resigned as president of the National Association of Evangelicals after allegations that he took meth and patronized a male prostitute. Now claims his sexuality is "too complex" for others to judge.

Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons: Accused of assaulting a woman in a parking garage by throwing her against a wall and threatening to rape her. She drops criminal charges, citing intimidation by his campaign. She does, however, file a civil suit. In June 2009, Gibbons asks a judge to seal his phone records against her lawyers, something that may also have to do with his ongoing divorce proceedings, in which he's accused of more affairs.

And yet gay marriage is anathema... To what?
