The “M” word
K-Lo admits that her future potential husband* might have a bit of a problem with the Republican base (and by base, we mean the “Adam & Eve rode dinosaurs” base) Read the posts from the bottom up. Yes, I know it’s hard, but you’re a big boy/girl/neutral on the whole gender thing:
MORMONS FOR PREZ [John J. Miller]
When I wrote my NRODT story on Romney earlier this year, I cited a poll in which 4 percent of Americans said they’d never vote for a Catholic for president, 6 percent said they’d never vote for a Jew — and 17 percent said they’d never vote for a Mormon.

ROMNEY’S NUMBERS [John J. Miller]
Understandably, they aren’t high, according to a recent poll viewable here (scroll down). Only 4 percent of GOPers say they prefer him for 2008. He certainly doesn’t have the name recognition of a McCain, Gingrich, or Giuliani. But single digits right now don’t mean much. He’s actually ahead of George Allen, whom many Republican insiders believe has the inside track for the nomination.

AP ON MITT [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
I’d object to the hostility toward Mormons shown by the mentioning of the word “cult” in that piece on his plans, but I’ve seen my e-mails. And, yeah, unless I have a skewed sample of evangelicals reading, it’s a problem.
