In typical fashion, Hugh Hewitt calls for his resignation because he was the head of Romney's Idaho campaign and senatorial outreach program. The Cowardly Lion can't have anyone giving Mitt a hard time. As you see, Hewitt is still supporting the creepy David Vitter, but not Craig....'Nuff said.

And this response by his blog brother Dean Barnett is also ludicrous as he defends Hewitt:

I don’t think anyone’s being hypocritical if they say Vitter can stay and Craig must go. Unless you’re going to say that no moral and personal code should apply to our politicians, Craig’s career must surely head to the crapper.

Glenn responds:

Apparently, what matters is to have moral standards, even if they are completely incoherent, arbitrary and applied solely to suit one's personal biases and political interests [Vitter's resignation would be for heterosexual encounters and would lead to appointment of a Democratic replacement (hence Hewitt opposes it), while Craig's resignation would be for gay sex and would lead to a GOP replacement (hence Hewitt favors it)]. It might be totally "arbitrary," says Barnett, but at least it is a moral standard.
