Not Like the Other

[posted by Callimachus]

I see the GOP got its talking points aligned before the Sunday news shows.

A GOP leader Sunday denied a double standard in pushing Sen. Larry Craig to resign after a sex sting guilty plea, while remaining silent over GOP Sen. David Vitter's involvement with an escort service.

... Sen. John Ensign, R-Nev., the Senate Republican campaign chairman, said Craig "admitted guilt. That is a big difference between being accused of something and actually admitting guilt."

"David Vitter never did that. Larry Craig did," continued Ensign on ABC's "This Week" program.

That may make a nice distinction, but it looks to me like just enough reasoning to justify what you already did instinctively.
