Say what you want about Diaper Dave but he's just not shy about prostituting himself.

Louisiana Sen. David Vitter is running for governor, and he doesn't face any kind of election this year. Nevertheless, trackers at the liberal group American Bridge were on hand for one of his town halls, where they captured video of an exchange between the senator and a constituent who sounds nervous about lobbying money. She tries to discuss the "Kotch brothers," and botches the name.

"Koch brothers," says Vitter, correcting her pronunciation.

"They have paid so much money," says the woman. Vitter interrupts her.

"I think the Koch brothers are two of the most patriotic Americans on the face of the Earth," he says. There are cheers from the crowd. "I'll be honest with you. My reaction is: God bless the Koch brothers. They're fighting for our freedom."
