One of the realities of a Romney Candidacy...

Played itself out yes­ter­day as Andrew Sul­li­van went after his Mor­monism talk­ing about a Mor­mon “mask”.

Ann Alt­house is unim­pressed:

Imag­ine some friend of yours told you some­thing like that about some other reli­gious group. Test it with every reli­gious group can think of, refer­ring to polit­i­cal can­di­dates that you like and dis­like. Hold your­self to a neu­tral stan­dard. Are you sat­is­fied with what you’ve put out there?

Via Glenn who links to the South Park episode on Mor­mons and the end quote thereof,

As I said yes­ter­day, our friends on the left who made a big fuss con­cern­ing how south­ern evan­gel­i­cals will judge Mitt Rom­ney over his reli­gions will con­tinue to hit Rom­ney over it (if nom­i­nated) right up to elec­tion day.

This is one basic rule: It doesn’t mat­ter how “mod­er­ate” any GOP can­di­date is, said can­di­date will be painted as a racist, sex­ist, bigot, homo­phobe, reli­gious fanatic.

Since the same brush is going to be pained by the left and their allies in the MSM you might as well not worry about reli­gious or social views, in fact I’d nom­i­nate some­one who not only hold social con­ser­v­a­tive views but can artic­u­late them. I won­der who that might be?

Played itself out yesterday as Andrew Sullivan went after his Mormonism talking about a Mormon “mask“.

Ann Althouse is unimpressed:

Imagine some friend of yours told you something like that about some other religious group. Test it with every religious group can think of, referring to political candidates that you like and dislike. Hold yourself to a neutral standard. Are you satisfied with what you’ve put out there?

Via Glenn who links to the South Park episode on Mormons and the end quote thereof,

As I said yesterday, our friends on the left who made a big fuss concerning how southern evangelicals will judge Mitt Romney over his religions will continue to hit Romney over it (if nominated) right up to election day.

This is one basic rule: It doesn’t matter how “moderate” any GOP candidate is, said candidate will be painted as a racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe, religious fanatic.

Since the same brush is going to be pained by the left and their allies in the MSM you might as well not worry about religious or social views, in fact I’d nominate someone who not only hold social conservative views but can articulate them. I wonder who that might be?
