Should (fill in the name) resign. Deja vu?

It’s become a stock interview with a TV reporter questioning a representative of the party invited to defend the politician that’s most recently besmirched the party.

The exchange has become all too familiar and predictable, some version of earlier ones when the culprit was not Larry Craig, but Donald Rumsfeld, Mark Foley, David Vitter or Alberto Gonzalez.

Today it was Contessa Brewer’s turn to face off with Tom DeLay, and it went something like:

BREWER

Do you think Larry Craig should resign?

DELAY
That’s not up to me. It will be his decision.

(If there’s an investigation, this is when the politician adds, “I can’t go into details because there’s an ongoing investigation.”)

BREWER
But he pleaded guilty! He…

DELAY
(Interrupts, voice rising)
See, that’s the liberal bias of all you news people!

They continued with the interviewer responding that they covered these stories only to be drowned out by the politician alluding to the many moral infractions attributed to the other party. The mounting accusations and self-righteousness came to an end when it was time for a commercial break.

With so many politicians being accused of misdeeds, I'm proposing the newscasters come up with fresh formats. For Larry Craig, they could do a TV version of Clue, which would be sure to create more interest in the story. I can see Contessa Brewer asking, “Did Larry Craig do it in the bathroom with Colonel Mustard?”
