Olbermann: "...What is the psychology and what are the political psychologies of pulling a Gary Hart, I double dare you,against the media?"

Maddow: "...This is the exact wrong strategy to take if you really do want to try to weather this as a storm. I mean, if I were the um, gay-scandal-getting-out-of-advice-incorporated, if I were trying to give him some advice on how to get out of this, I would say do anything except flat out deny that you were ever-ever gay and have ever done anything like this because all it takes is one incident among the so many of them that have been alleged against Larry Craig, all it takes is for one of them to be proven and he's absolutely, positively sunk."
