The EFM Feature

Here’s what libertarian New York Post scribe Ryan Sager has to say on the Real Clear Politics blog.

Mitt Romney is quickly emerging as the only plausible ’08 alternative for social conservatives to more socially moderate frontrunners Rudy Giuliani and John McCain…

You bet he is!

The elephant in the room, however, to use my new favorite phrase, is Romney’s Mormonism. Evangelical conservatives are uncomfortable with it — not necessarily hostile, but totally in the dark as to what Mormonism even is.

Um, not exactly. Evangelicals are both a bit brighter, and a bit more tolerant, than Ryan seems to think. Just ask John McCain and George Allen. We’ll of course have more on this in the days and weeks to come.
