Boy, Republican hypocracy is the gift that just keeps going and going and going….

As Michael at Bloggernista says, it’s been like 20 minutes since the last Repug scandal, so time for a new one. This one is especially delicious since it involves the Texas District Attorney who argued before the U.S. Supreme Court to allow Texass to keep their sodomy law which criminalized homosexuality.

Harris County DA, Chuck Rosenthal argued before the Supreme Court:

“Even if you infer that various States acting through their legislative process have repealed sodomy laws, there is no protected right to engage in extrasexual – extramarital sexual relations, again, that can trace their roots to history or the traditions of this nation.”

So what makes this one so great. Rosenthal is married and has portrayed himself as a strong defender of family values and the sanctity of marriage, but now Chuck has a little problem. It seems he’s under investigation following the discovery of e-mails containing sexually explicit videos, racist jokes and what is described as torrid love notes to his executive secretary.

I’m beginning think these guys are so interested in controlling everyone else’s sex life, so they can clear the field for themselves.
