Hewitt, Vitter, Craig

More

Hugh Hewitt has had a slight adjustment in his view of the Craig affair. Yesterday, he pronounced that the distinction between the cases of David Vitter and Larry Craig was entirely a function of one pleading guilty to a misdemeanor and the other never being actually arrested or convicted by law enforcement for procuring prostitutes. This distinction is of Sesame-Street comprehension level, according to Hewitt. Now glance back at Hewitt's first explanation for why Craig had to resign forthwith:

I realize that I did not say this about Senator Vitter, but Craig's behavior is so reckless and repulsive that an immediate exit is required.

Repulsive. That's not a legal term last time I checked.
