True virtue in the District of Columbia 

Where does true virtue lie? With the honest whore who grants me the use and pleasure of her flesh for an hour?

Or does true virtue lie with the utterly corrupt ruling class that pays for her services with the money they make from war, or from selling the war?

Or does true virtue lie with the john who makes his living by promoting abstinence?

Randall Tobias resigned as deputy secretary of state one day after confirming to Brian Ross of ABC that he had patronized the Pamela Martin firm. Speaking Saturday on "Good Morning America," Ross said Tobias told him Tobias' number was on Palfrey's phone records because he had called "to have gals come over to the condo to give me a massage."

"Gals"--what a degrading word.

Tobias, who is 65 and married, was director of U.S. Foreign Assistance and administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development. He previously held a top job in the Bush administration overseeing AIDS relief, in which he promoted abstinence and a policy requiring grant recipients to swear they oppose prostitution.

Angel, Anna, Annie, Cathy, Elaine, Gabrielle, Icy, Jade, Jasmine, Jennifer, Jenny, Jessica, Karina, Kay, Kim, Laura, Lisa, Lucy, Lynn, Mei-Ling, Ming, Naomi, Oie, Pammie, Pink, Sasha, Sophia, and Tina are the heroines of these stories that you are reading. They are truly virtuous. They are your daughters; perhaps your lovers; perhaps your wives. They are courageous, friendly, honest, efficient, kind, hard-working, can be intimate, and work very hard. "Charity" and "whore" come from the same root. Can Randall Tobias and the rest of our depraved ruling class say that they share a whore's virtues?

Of course, there's an art to the business being a whore. I'm sure Pamela Martin was a good one:

Palfrey's attorney, Montgomery Blair Sibley, said Friday that he has been contacted by five lawyers recently, asking whether their clients' names are on Palfrey's list of 10,000 to 15,000 phone numbers. Some, Sibley said, have inquired whether accommodations could be made to keep their identities private. ABC is expected to air a report on Palfrey and her clients on Friday's edition of "20/20."

Disclosures have been made sparely and artfully.

Good. I like the spare, and the artful.

The hypocricy of it all is beyond laughable, beyond tears, beyond belief.
