The Vitter Files

412020301 VITTY CENT LEAVES THE BUNKER Mon, 16 Jul 2007 18:04:25

This just in: reknown whoremonger wuss and winger Senator David Vitter will *finally* emerge from seclusion and face the proverbial music some time around 5PM. I expect that he’ll make a brief statement and then skedaddle without taking questions. WWL promises live coverage on the teevee and the net. LINK.

Oyster has linked to posts by 2 principled Louisiana conservative bloggers who are calling for Vitter to zip up his pants (unpin his diaper?) and resign. Well done gentleman. LINK.

412020398 VITTY’S MODIFIED LIMITED HANGOUT Mon, 16 Jul 2007 22:44:27

I’m in the throes of having another Nixon era flashback after watching Vitty Cent’s brief and ineffective appearance in Metry. Vitty only admitted to the DC madam story and continues to deny any other whoring and/or diapering about. The mystery of Vitty’s statement is why it took him so long if his plan was to continue stonewalling. Where’s Tricky Dick when a Republican in trouble needs him? Dead. It’s damn thoughtless of him…

The high point for me was when Vitty attempted to make his problem look like a liberal conspiracy and stated flatly that he’d continue fighting for the “same values” as always. It was a vintage snitty snooty Vitty: arrogant and self righteous. He doesn’t do humility well y’all.

His spouse Wendy was slightly more effective but if they think that a 6 minute joint statement without taking any questions will stop the feeding frenzy they’ve got another thing coming. Just wait until he gets back to Washington and tries the “I won’t take any questions about my zipper problems” approach. It will be very interesting to see how Bobby Jindal handles the inevitable questions about his erstwhile ally.

Ahh I love the smell of burning wingnut on a summer evening…




411803916 A NEW NOLA BLOG Thu, 14 Sep 2006 16:53:02 ”

It’s shameless plug time here at the Adrastos Virtual Cafe. A friend of mine has resumed blogging under the pen name of Celcus. He first blogged last year in lieu of sending out mass emails to friends” romans and countrymen. His blog is called Some Came Running. I’m not really sure if the title is an hommage to the novel by James Jones or the Vincente Minelli helmed film version thereof that starred Frank Sinatra Shirley MacLaine and Dean Martin. Rat Pack city dude.

Celcus prefers to remain anonymous for now. Suffice it to say that he’s another NOLA blogger/activist type. I know him from the activist network and he’s a helluva nice guy and regular reader of this blog. The poor bastard. He also has good taste in music which of course means that we like many of the same people. The last time we met we discussed the comparative merits of bass gods Chris Squire and Tony Levin or summat like that…

Welcome Celcus. I feel as if I should say Hail Caesar while I’m at it. Of course I’m not sure which Caesar I’m hailing: Sid? Claudius? Rosas? Chavez? The salad?


MALAKA OF THE DAY: SEAN PAYTON Tue, 23 Sep 2008 17:08:33

I usually leave the sports blogging to Dillyberto Mr. Clio Mr. Gloomy Pants and the late great Perfesser. They’re better informed about the hometown NFL team than I am BUT Saints Head Coach Sean Payton has been making what the Brits would call a right prat of himself.

Payton seems to have sucumbed to what could be called “coaching genius syndrome” after signing his contract extension. In short Payton thinks he’s smarter than everyone else which has led to his outsmarting himself. The Saints have now lost two games they should have won in part due to Payton’s sense of papal infallibility coaching division as well as to the team’s inability to run the ball.

The thing however that makes Payton a malaka involves his use or lack thereof of veteran running back Deuce McAllister. Deuce has suited up for all three games and has carried the ball only twice. By his own admission Deuce is not the player he was in his prime BUT if he’s 75% of the old Deuce he’s still a good player and one with more heart and hustle than Payton’s pet Reggie (Douchebag) Bush.

The short yardage situations in Denver screamed for a power runner like Deuce. Instead he stood on the sidelines and watched the team fail repeatedly. Payton’s response: Deuce’s time will come. The Picayune’s John DeShazier made an excellent point this morning: if Deuce can’t help the team why dress him? LINK. How much worse could he have done than Pierre Thomas? Of course Pierre is one of Payton’s guys and he inherited Deuce. Nuff said.

Payton should swallow his pride and stop strutting around like President Beavis on Mission Accomplished day. Payton had a great first season but is now 19-18 in New Orleans. That record hardly makes him the reincarnation of Vince Lombardi. So Coach stop being such a malaka and either play Deuce or cut him. If he plays well the team looks good and if he’s washed up as you seem to think you’ll be proven right about him which you’ll like since you always think you’re right.

One more thing: I wonder when Jeffrey will start clamoring for Coach Soupy’s head. He’s in favor of  Les Miles getting fired by LSU even *after* the national championship. Is he consistent or merely a contrarian? Look on the bright side Pants if Payton gets fired before the end of his contract Tom Benson is out a bundle.
