This Week In Religion

Matthews says tonight shows that the voters have a problem with Romney, the LDS candidate.

It is a factually accurate statement to say that voters chose an Evangelical candidate over a Mormon candidate. But did they? Or is Romney's problem, as one of my friend's described it, that he's the Reep Kerry - an elitest snob that simply can't connect with anyone. He's the preppy boy and we don't like the preppy boy. That he's a preppy Mormon has nothing to do with it. Maybe people don't like Mitt.

It's sure easier to point at religious bigotry - which I'm sure figures in to some extent, but perhaps not THAT much - than admit that you just don't have traction as a candidate and you lost to an Arkansan.
