Ass**** of the Day: Senator David Vitter

No, America's not doomed. Not at all.

Honestly, the Scoop does not care if you agree or disagree with President Obama, but the Scoop does think it would be nice–at least if you’re a sitting U.S. senator–if you showed up for goddamned work. Tonight, Louisiana Republican Senator David Vitter is skipping (read: boycotting) the Prez’s address to Congress so that he can watch football.

“I’m going to be watching from my family room in Metairie, Louisiana because I have a Saints game party there and I’m absolutely going to be there for the big game,” he said.

Sitting. United States. Senator. Could somebody just shoot the Scoop now? Please?
