Why do conservatives condemn Clinton's immorality, but defend David Vitter's visits to hookers?

Or portray Mark Foley's attempted seduction of boys as a liberal plot.

Or defend Newt Gingrich's infidelities and divorcing his wife for another woman while she lay dying of cancer.

Update:

No he did it OUTSIDE the oval office on the tax payer's time and dime

You're right - HUGE difference - it's all in WHERE it happened

Update 2:

I see, so if Clinton had PAID monica you'd be cool with that?

    Because they're raving hypocrites. Simple as that.

    I don't see many if any doing that. I think Vitter is a hypocrite for his legislative agenda compared to his personal life and also am not a fan of Newt for many reasons. I definitely think Foley was scum that needed to be out of Congress but what you probably saw from conservatives on that one is that the use of political blogs to try to portray all republicans as accepting this type of behavior by Foley when most had not idea that it was happening, just another example of the Daily Kos and George Soros manipulation of news events.

    Because Foley and Vitter were Republicans.

    Conservatives don't like their dirty laundry made public.

    Liberal thinking means you bring bad behavior out into the light and address it and hopefully fix it.

    Conservatives think if you just ignore it it will go away and you certainly don't talk about it in mixed company, heaven forbid!

    Because Vitter was paying for it, and that's a capitalist issue not a moral one.

    Of course, I'd be cool with it, capitalism trumps morality anyday.

    Just ask cheney.

    Hypocrisy. Clinton didn't start a war, his escapades didn't generate any money for the wealthy

    It wasn't what he did, it was that he lied to a grand jury.
