Clownshow 2008- Whatever Happened to the DC Madam?

The DC Madam scandal came and went without the expected firestorm of outings and shaming that the press was licking its lips for. But funnily enough we've seen a parade of Republican congressmen head for the exits and choosing not to run for re-election this year. It could be that the fix is in for a blowout in 2008. Or it could be pre-emptive strikes against humiliating sexgates, since it's no fun to smear retirees.

But then again, given the rumors and Trent Lott and his comrades, would these guys even be interested in what the DC Madam had on the menu?

It's funny, I was considering calling this feature Whorehouse 2008, but I didn't want to cast aspersions on people who do honest work for a living. Everyone hates clowns, particularly small children, so I named this feature ClownShow 2008 to put the coming tsunami of lies in its proper context. Enjoy!

PS- Did I use enough double entendres in that posting?


  1. lol. I was so sure this article was going to be about Madame Xanadu.

  2. Well, American politics is a form of Black Magic, so perhaps it is in some way...
