Can you blame a politician for being a prostitute?

Michael Munger does not think so:
“For one, the comparison defames prostitutes. Politics is the oldest profession. Second, in prostitution, it is the hooker who gets screwed. In politics, it is the customer.”
That reminds me, have you noticed that Joe Thompson has decided to lobby for UNM? I’ll bet hookers don’t get $20K. (Okay, hookers don’t have to do it for 60 days either.)
Let’s face it, politics often trumps principle.
