Ad of the day: Melancon airs Vitter's dirty laundry

Rep. Charlie Melancon (D-La.) has finally done it on air. He's taken on Sen. David Vitter's (R-La.) involvement in the "D.C. madam" scandal with a two-minute long ad that includes not only replays from past TV news reports, but audio from an interview with "a former French-quarter prostitute" who says she was involved with Vitter. She doesn't hold back on the details, so consider yourself warned.

The ad is part of a stepped-up effort by Melancon to cut into Vitter's sizable lead in the Louisiana Senate race. A cut-down version of a longer viral Web video, "Forgotten Crimes," is still longer than the standard 30-second or minute-long ads and will be airing on cable statewide.

This Is Just Another Attempt Of An Deperate Exceedingly Corrupt Politician Trying To Salvage His Less Than Honorable Political Career. He Knows That He's Had It As Far As His Job's Concern And All Of His Lying Couldn't Save His Political Career If His Worthless Life Depended On it. He'll Join All Of The Others Who he Had Put in The Unemployment Lines And Good Riddens To An Worthless Piece Of Crap Like Charlie Melonson

There is quite a bit of literal "dirt" in Vitter's laundry that this ad doesn't even hint at - his diaper fetish and the role he wanted prostitutes to play in the charade that he was a baby. The man is messed up.

What is the matter with Louisiana, American voters that they would consider voting for this whoremonger?

“She doesn't hold back on the details, so consider yourself warned.”

...um, she does hold back on the details. A lot. This doesn't say a word about weird stuff with diapers. Sorry, I don't think it is appropriate either, but it is true.

The guy is just weird.

And while the powerful go free, Ms. Palfrey, facing a long prison term, hung herself last year in a wooden shed at her mother's house.

Senator Vitter, like all Republicans, is a total hypocrite. Who can believe that this guy is even willing to show his face in public. The man has some kind of fetish where he gets off wearing diapers?? And yet he is still allowed to keep his $200,000 job in the U.S. Senate? With a huge pension for life?? Where is the justice?

That the Republican Party did not cut this guy loose is utter madness.
