it bothers me because this endorsement is a good example of 'cutting off your nose to spite your face'
No, it's a good example of "We're defending our principles and if you want to be a thorn in our side, we'll be a thorn in yours."
by the way, i wish toomey would have run for governor.
Part of me wishes that, too, but I am excited for 2010. He'll very likely be a candidate for the Senate again (unless Santorum loses next year and plans a Senate comeback for the same year).
