LISTEN: Sen. David Vitter Made a Funny About Rachel Maddow No Longer Looking Like a Woman. Oops!

When you’re gabbing on a radio show with a couple of like-minded fellas, sometimes it’s easy to forget your conversation is being broadcast to the public. Like the one Sen. David Vitter, the Louisiana Republican, had on Rush Radio 99.5 in New Orleans, where he laughed and laughed about Rachel Maddow’s “womanly” yearbook photo.

So went the conversation:

MALE HOST: I wonder if Senator Vitter is ever going to post, like, maybe the video of the first time he was on the floor of the Senate. If I have to show the way I looked the first time I was on TV, you should do that too.

VITTER: We should go further back than that, how about high school yearbook?

MALE HOST: Oh yeah.

VITTER: De La Salle marching band.

MALE HOST: That’d be cool. Well you know, with Rachel Maddow they had that picture of her…

FEMALE HOST: Looking like a woman.

MALE HOST: Yeah it was really bizarre.

VITTER: [LAUGHS]: Must have been a long time ago.


And now guess who’s very sorry? In an open apology letter, the senator’s office releases this addendum:

Dear Rachel,

Regarding my remark during a radio conversation today, I apologize.

The hosts made their comment and I obviously chimed in. While we do not usually agree on the issues, I do not think you deserved that comment.

      Maybe Maddow should offer to powder his sore ass and diaper it after telling him what a bad wittle boy he is.

      @Lawrence: Eh, I thought it was a pretty good apology by politician standards. He didn’t say “Mistakes were made”. He didn’t say “I’m sorry Rachel Maddow is so manly”. He didn’t say “I’m sorry you were offended”. Obviously he was a little weaselly with the “the host started it” bit, but at least he flat out said “I apologize”.

      I wonder if we’ll ever have mature adults in politics again?

      @Paul Gerthoffer:
      You’re an uber-moron who’s not in drag, clearly visible for all to see…maybe you should hide your ignorance behind some lipstick and peroxide, because your stupidity is straight up ugly.
