Just when I was feeling more hopeful about Romney’s chances to win the White House due primarily to his decision to put Paul Ryan on his ticket, the Republican Party shows its propensity to be just as petty, vindictive and cruel as the liberals we so despise.

I am still stunned and saddened as I watch prominent party spokesmen, as well as many on RedState, try to shame and destroy Todd Akin until he is unable to continue on.
