Damn. Is this the Republican Party or an episode of the Maury Povich show? washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-pol…

You know how, whenever there’s a Democrat scandal, liberal blogs try to pretend like they don’t notice it? I hate that, and so I’m not going to pretend not to notice that former Sen. Pete Domenici, 80, fathered an illegitimate child in 1978 with the daughter of Domenici’s Republican colleague, Sen. Paul Laxalt:
She raised the son, Adam Paul Laxalt, as a single mother. According to past Virginia voter registration records, he was born in August 1978, 35 years ago. Michelle Laxalt would have been 24 at the time; Domenici would have been 46.
So, here you have a married Republican senator banging a chick barely half his age, a chick who just happens to be a fellow Senator’s daughter, and . . . Well, it was the ’70s, eh?
Back in 1978 — no, I’m not going to tell any of those stories. But I was a long-haired teenage rock-and-roller back then, not to mention a Democrat. How was I to know that Republican senators were partying down like the cast of Boogie Nights?
Also, I’ll point out that the Washington Post included Domenici’s party affiliation in the first sentence of the article, whereas by contrast when a Democrat congressman pleads guilty to federal felony charges . . . eh, not so much.
Finally, while it is embarrassing to admit that a married Republican senator fathered a baby with a chick half his age, at least he didn’t leave her to die in a submerged Oldsmobile.
