One of These Things Is Not Like the Other...Or: IOKIYA[Straight]R

Shorter wingnutosphere on Larry Craig:

Resign. Resign. Resign. Resign. Resign.
The very same wingnuts, on David Vitter:
Hugh Hewitt: "I realize that I did not say this about Senator Vitter..."
Michelle Malkin: inconclusive.
Gateway Pundit: no mention.
Free in Idaho: no mention.
Blogs for Bush: no mention.
I know there's some difference there, but I can't quite put my finger on it...

(Not that I have any sympathy for Craig--he got himself elected as a bigoted scumbag, and the fact that his bigotry was self-loathing doesn't exactly mitigate that offense. Still, it's pretty clear why the wingnuts are turning on one Senator who committed a sex-related misdemeanor, but not the other one.)
