Eat your own...

Much has been made of the fact that prominent Republicans and prominent conservative bloggers called for Senator Craig to resign after he plead guilty to a misdemeanor. I don't have much to add to the poor guy's misery. I hope him and his family can come through this broken trust and learn to forgive and love.

However, I do think it is hypocritical that Senator Craig was forced to resign, but Senator Vitter after he admitted to using a prostitution service. Could it be that the Republican Governor of Idaho will replace Craig with another Republican, but the Democratic Governor of Louisiana would probably replace Vitter with a Democrat? Republicans have thrown one of their own under the bus for political reasons, not for character reasons.

Remember when Jesus used to vote for Republicans?
