I realize that I did not say this about Senator Vitter, but Craig's behavior is so reckless and repulsive that an immediate exit is required.
What's different about Vitter? Vitter was seeing female prostitutes and breaking the law.
UPDATE: Commenter Benner suggests a reason for Hugh's different standard for Craig:

Duh - Craig Romney Senate co chair
Come on folks. I want both Craig and Vitter gone. The only reason Hugh wants Craig long gone is because he might reflect badly on Romney because he is a big Romney supporter.
UPDATE: Several commenters on MSNBC ask:
Why does Mr. Hewitt view Mr. Vitter's conduct as less offensive when he was an apparent habitual customer of two whorehouses. How could that be less culpable than the single incident with Senator Craig? Is it because Craig's solicitation involved homosexuality?

Only reason Hewitt didn't come down on Vitter is because Vitter isn't GAY. I guess for Repubs it's okay to cheat on your spouse... as long as you're straight.
