What? Oh. AIDS Czar and Dep. Secretary of State Randall Tobias resigned today; apparently doofus was using the services of Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the soi-disant "D.C. Madam," to acquire the services of masseuses. Mr Tobias claims that no sex was involved, and that he is now using another firm that uses "Central Americans". This is an impressive answer, inasmuch as it pretty much torpedoes any chance of sympathy from either side: the Left won't believe that he wasn't having sex, and the Right won't believe that Tobias checked his new service providers for green cards.

Read on.

Anyway, the insider scuttlebutt is that the Office of Presidential Personnel would have been the guys to check this out; and once I saw the initials, well, I'm of the right age to get the song stuck in my head.

What, you think I should be taking this more seriously?

Dude, it's Washington DC. At least he wasn't doing lines off of assorted hooker backsides. Or, worse, smoking tobacco on federal property.

But this is a pretty big deal. He is a deputy sec of state. He had access to sensitive and classified material. The use of soiled doves to obtain information is as old of time. I assume he was married so even if he didn't succumb to pillow talk it does put him in a position to be blackmailed.

He also should have been very well aware of the history of the use of such services in that town. I will observe that what is now the IRS building used to be a red light district. (how little things change)

Central Americans? If it isn't bad enough that our highways are filling up with Toyotas and Hondas, our politicians have started out-sourcing their sex scandals. What's the world coming to?

the Left won't believe that he wasn't having sex

And the Right will?

What, you think I should be taking this more seriously?

Perhaps so... then again I'm not sure how important the United States Global AIDS Coordinator really is in the grand scheme of things or for America specifically. I'd probably cut that whole office.

Hey, what else has he got?

Another Republican caught up in scandal resigns his position with the government.
Why don't the democrats do the same?
Just askin'?

I do not know about ALL that, but it appears that hypocrisy knows NO bounds. Join the conversation here.

With malice towards none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see right.

Great post, Moe. I'll take your reference to doing coke off hookers' backsides as an homage to Doogies' brilliant turn as, well, himself (Neal Patrick Harris) in "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle."

"NPH wouldn't do that."

But joking aside, there is a mininal risk to National Security involved here (blackmail can still be an issue, even if the dude's unmarried) and it's not the best thing for the AIDS Czar, of all people, to be perceived as engaging in high-risk activity.

All of which makes the whole thing even funnier, in a dark humor kinda way.

For we have a peculiar power of thinking before we act, and of acting, too, whereas other men are courageous from ignorance but hesitate upon reflection.
