This is a great Reader’s Digest article about Gov. Romney, if you didn’t catch it. Writer Bill Beaman dissects some common slams against the Governor…including this one:
“Yeah, but he’s a Mormon. And that makes him unelectable.” So let’s see — he’s up against one Republican who’s supposedly unelectable because he’s not a real conservative and another Republican who’s unelectable because…umm… oh yeah, he’s not a real conservative. And on the Democrats’ side, he’d be up against a woman who’s said to be unelectable and an African American who’s said to be unelectable. Unless we’re just going to shut down the White House for four years (tempting, isn’t it?), someone’s going to prove electable. Might as well be a Mormon.
