Greg Sargent at WaPo's Plumline caught this exchange earlier today on New Orleans radio station Rush Radio 99.5.

MALE HOST: I wonder if Senator Vitter is ever going to post, like, maybe the video of the first time he was on the floor of the Senate.

FEMALE HOST: Yeah, that would be cool!

MALE HOST: ....If I have to show the way I looked the first time I was on TV, you should do that too.

VITTER: We should go further back than that, how about high school yearbook?

MALE HOST: Oh yeah.

VITTER: De La Salle marching band.

MALE HOST: That'd be cool. Well you know, with Rachel Maddow they had that picture of her...

FEMALE HOST: Looking like a woman.

MALE HOST: Yeah it was really bizarre.

VITTER: [LAUGHS]: Must have been a long time ago.

ALL THREE: [HEAVY LAUGHTER]

Vitter later apologized but this continues a pattern of remarks and behavior of his which has been decidedly anti-woman and anti-gay.
