Weekend Watchdog

Every Friday in our Weekend Watchdog feature, we post suggested questions for scheduled Sunday guests. You can add your own questions in the comment thread. We’ll also include contact information for the shows, so we can let them know what their viewers want asked.

And on Sunday at 4 PM ET, tune in to Air America Radio’s “Seder on Sundays” program, where I’ll offer the Weekend Watchdog Wrap-Up.

For National Republican Senatorial Committee Chair John Ensign, R-Nev. (ABC’s This Week): When Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, was snared by a sex scandal, senate Republicans moved to launch investigations, strip him of committee assignments and (successfully it appears) pressure him to resign.

But when Sen. David Vitter, R-La., was snared by a sex scandal, Senate Republicans rallied around and showered him with applause.

Why did your party treat the two differently? Is because Craig is apparently gay and Vitter is not? Or is it that Craig would likely be replaced by a Republican, and Vitter a Democrat?
