Remember last year when Republican Senator David Vitter’s phone number turned up on the DC Madam’s prostitution client list along with the numbers of George Bush’s deputy secretary of state and the strategist who devised Bush’s “shock and awe” plan for the invasion of Iraq?

Well it turns out none of these guys will have to testify in the trial.

Instead they chose to have 12 former prostitutes testify – including a naval lieutenant and a 50-something doctor – while letting all of the high-profile clients off the hook.

Hardly seems fair.
