Happy Thanksgiving

To all 3 of my readers. Please also keep in mind and be thankful for all the men and women serving in our armed forces - particularly the cooks.

Update: I'm going out of town, so in case I don't post anything more over the holiday weekend, I'd also like to say, FIGHT ON 'SC! BEAT THE IRISH!

The Mormon Mitt

There's some recurring chatter on The Corner today regarding Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, and whether his status as a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints will hurt his chances of ever becoming President.

K-Lo has posted a blurb about how Andrew Sullivan has derisively declared Romney to be a "Christianist" presidential candidate. This, of course, is Exhibit A that Andrew Sullivan, a self-identified Catholic, is a complete ignoramous when it comes to matters of religion. Read this article on Mormonism to find out why.

Personally, I don't care what Romney's religious affiliation is as far as his qualifications to be President are concerned. I suspect this is also true for many conservative Evangelicals like a friend of mine who once told me that she would feel more comfortable voting for a Morman man to be President than an Evangelical woman.

Update (11/22/06): Well, apparently Andrew doesn't think Mormons are Christians. What the heck does he mean by "Christianist" then?

Most of them to unwed mothers in their 20's.

I suppose if there's any good news in this, it's that the rate of teen pregnancies has declined to their lowest levels on record.

And No Man Will be Able to Tell How Much of it is Fake

Anti-warniks are planning a global orgasm for peace day this winter. I suspect the diner scene in "When Harry Met Sally..." will be required viewing for many of those wishing to participate. (link viat Drudge)
