This Just In: Senator Ensign is a Douchebag

Yeah, the very same Senator Ensign who decided that the price for DC’s voting rights was a complete stripping of firearms controls in the District of Columbia has proved himself a douche in other capacities: he’s admitted cheating on his wife. Usually I’d say “Nah, let him and his family deal with what is a painful issue.”

Instead, I think I’ll delight a little bit in the schadenfreude. Man, only the Germans would have a whole word for delighting in the embarrassment and suffering of others.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.

  1. You mean the same Senator who said this:

    “Marriage recognizes the ideal of a father and mother living together to raise their children … Marriage is the cornerstone on which our society was founded. For those who say that the Constitution is so sacred that we cannot or should not adopt the Federal Marriage Amendment, I would simply point out that marriage, and the sanctity of that institution, predates the American Constitution and the founding of our nation. Marriage, as a social institution, predates every other institution on which ordered society in America has relied … I am deeply concerned that a few unelected judges and some locally elected government officials have taken steps to redefine marriage to fit their own agenda … It is not right to mold marriage to fit the desires of a few, against the wishes of so many, and to ignore the important role of marriage.”

    That’s from his website at in a July 2004 press release.

    Sooooo….he’s a bit of a hypocrite.

  2. You can see a video of him and the woman kissing from last year over at [This comment violated our comment policy and has been altered] … kind of gross if you ask me..

  3. Repugnicants give marriage and fidelity a bad name. Newt, Rush, and Rudy have 8 marriages between them. In 1996, only one Repugnicant in the primary was still on his first marriage. The first divorce American President, you guessed it, a Repugnicant.
