Medved vs. Hannity on Sen. Craig

Driving around this afternoon, I caught about five minutes of Hannity and ten minutes of Medved. In that short snippet of time, I was struck by the stark difference in their approaches.

Hannity was running through a list Democratic elected miscreants-- from Barney Frank's roommate running an escort service to Ted Kennedy's driving and allegations of drug use. In each case, Hannity would start into the sordid details before seeming not to want to talk about it-- all for (lame) effect. Frankly, it was embarrassing.

Meanwhile, Medved was dealing with the ethical, legal and political issues head-on-- and echoed the increasing calls for Sen. Craig to resign. Aside from the hypocrisy, Medved was struck by the amazingly poor judgment Craig displayed if he was innocent.

Another brutal episode for the Republican party, but at least Medved is dealing with it in a candid and forthright manner.

When Barney Frank got mired in his troubles, he responded in a forthright manner and acknowledged his sexuality. Craig, on the other hand, appears to have been leaving a furtive double life, which he continues to deny. If nothing else, this opens him up to extortion; clearly he should resign. If he were to have admitted his problem, and taken steps to deal with it (go into therapy or marriage counseling, or else get a divorce and be openly gay), perhaps he wouldn't need to resign, although I doubt his constituents in Idaho would be pleased.
