Delicious Irony Watch

Randall L. Tobias resigned as deputy secretary of state on Friday because he was a client of Deborah Jeane Palfrey's notorious escort service. Let's see how many people are surprised by this tidbit from the Washington Post writeup:
Tobias, who is 65 and married, was director of U.S. Foreign Assistance and administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development. He previously held a top job in the Bush administration overseeing AIDS relief, in which he promoted abstinence and a policy requiring grant recipients to swear they oppose prostitution. (italics added to emphasize the extreme deliciousness of this irony)
Sometimes it seems like Washington is built out of nothing but glass houses.
