    Let's play Imagine an Alternative Universe. Suppose that Rep. Paul Ryan had said that Joe Biden had "sullied the religion that he and I share." How many days of the news cycle do you suppose would be dominated by the story? How many Democrats and members of the press would declare that this kind of religious provocation/bigotry rendered Mr. Ryan unfit for high office? Please state your estimates below. Now back to the universe we inhabit. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, participating in a unilateral race to the bottom, said just that about Mitt Romney. Highlighting an Internet item, Reid said he agreed that Romney "sullied" the Mormon faith, and that, in Nevada, voters would "understand that he is not the face of Mormonism."
    That is low, even by Harry Reid, "a little birdie told me Romney paid no taxes for 10 years," standards.
    Consider the deviousness. By calling Romney a bad Mormon, Reid draws attention to Romney's (and Reid's) religion for the benefit of anti-Mormon bigots who may not have heard about Romney's faith. Reid doesn't fear such prejudices himself because a.) He was reelected to a six-year term in 2010, b.) He hails from Nevada, which boasts a large Mormon population, and c.) Religious prejudices rarely affect House or Senate races.
    But really, saying someone "sullies" a religion? Republican senators should be demanding an apology at the very least, or calling for his resignation. Mr. Obama should be asked if he approves of this kind of character assassination.
    It would be a disgraceful smear even if Mr. Romney were an ordinary politician. He has his faults, of course, but it happens that he has a truly unusual and admirable history of personally helping the less fortunate. His personal commitment to helping others would be exemplary in a clergyman. It's almost unheard of among politicians.

    Why don't they just deal with the real issues we face. Seems to me none of them have any plan to solve the issues we face. They all act like kid's in the school yard to me.
