Romney's Book

Does Romney want to be president or not? Because naming Battlefield Earth as his favorite novel was probably not the best choice he could have made. It's not enough that he has that "Mormon problem," now he's got to add a "Scientology problem" to it.

He never had a chance to begin with. The only person on the planet who seriously thinks he can win is Professor Hewitt - the same guy who thought Harriet Miers was an excellent choice for a Supreme Court justice. (Don't get me wrong, I like Hugh but sometimes he's "just wrong.")

The article you linked had this quote:

“Mormonism sounds like a science fiction fantasy to some Americans,” Prothero said. “It seems one of the burdens of his campaign is to present an image of Mormonism that sounds more reasonable and less fantastic. This seems to be undercutting that effort.”

I'd love to see any article by Reuters, AP, or any other news service or paper that was willing to take a shot at Islam as easily as they will Christiantiy or its derivatives. (And, I gotta tell you, I think Mormonism is a cult, so it's not like I've got a lotta love for it.)

Don't hold your breath: CAIR has got everybody too damned scared.
