Great OP ED: Toomey Ducks for Cover

This is from Tony Norman of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette:

The Sitting Senator Ducks for Cover

"As of Thursday, Sen. Pat Toomey still refused to say what he thought of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and whether he continues to support him."

"Swept into office with the Tea Party wave of 2010, Mr. Toomey, who was a “true believer” back when it was politically expedient to sound as crazy as possible, now wants to appear more moderate than the standard-bearer of his party. If he can do so without antagonizing the pitchfork and torches crowd that brung him to the dance in the first place, that would be his preference."

"Mr. Toomey understands that his reticence to go on the record about whether he supports Mr. Trump is the kind of political cowardice that doesn’t even pretend to be subtle. It’s unconscionable that less than two weeks before Pennsylvanians go to the polls, our junior senator continues to maintain the fiction that he’s still weighing the pros and cons of Mr. Trump’s candidacy."

<snip>

"Pennsylvanians aren’t stupid. We know Mr. Toomey isn’t in a position to endorse Hillary Clinton, but that doesn’t mean he’s obligated to endorse the Republican nominee out of some misguided sense of party loyalty. You can’t “love the sinner, but hate the sin” when it comes to Donald Trump."
