National Republican Party leaders have one obvious step to take this week: Fire the party personnel who came up with the crazy idea of holding the party convention behind closed doors. It was a blatantly bad idea — almost a gift to Democrats. GOP leaders

DEWITT COLUMN: Just call me ‘The Cucumber Patch Kid’
