The knives are out for David Vitter inside the beltway:
One senior Republican operative who works closely on Senate races said the last thing their party wants is to have vulnerable senators answering questions about Vitter’s sex scandal.
“He’s exactly what we don’t need,” the GOP operative said. “We need to drain the swamp.”
This is what happens when you’re a political lone wolf. When trouble strikes, you’re on your own. If Vitter loses on November, 21st he’ll be under tremendous pressure to not run for re-election to the Senate. It should be great fun. Stay tuned.
Here’s some Pulp Fiction Thursday lagniappe inspired by a certain malakatude hall of famer:

“We need to
drain the swampempty the diaper pail, it’s starting to really STINK” a Republican operative should have said.
Interesting. If Vitter loses the state-wide vote for governor next weekend during an off-year, what are the chances he’ll run for re-election to the Senate next year during a presidential election year, with its much higher turnout in a state-wide vote? Would he survive a contested primary?
Vitter may be running not just for governor, but for his political life. If he loses Nov. 21, he’s probably done for as a candidate for the foreseeable future.
I think you’re right. 3rd place Goober finisher Scott Angelle is looking into challenging Vitter next year. He got 19%of the vote and finished within 4 points of knocking Vitter off. He’s staying neutral in the runoff.
And, if Vitter is fighting for his political life, my understanding is that he’s a pretty nasty piece of work. Look for something really awful to come blurping out about Edwards around Tuesday or Wednesday next week. My guess is it will be just far enough removed from Vitter that he can plausibly play the innocent for 72 hours, by which time the maximum damage will have been inflicted on Edwards.
