I just read my first Hugh Hewitt commentary at Townhall.com. Why? Temporary insanity, I suppose. I usually avoid names revered by my most conservative acquaintances.
However, I was browsing through comments about Mitt Romney’s “I Am Mormon” speech and there was the Hewitt byline. Morbid curiosity got the best of me and after the first few paragraphs, bemusement took over. Hewitt was effusive, called it a “great, great” day, and declared the speech an “extraordinary success.”
If enough Republicans share Hewitt’s over-the-top enthusiasm, the Democrats can’t lose next year.

You’re exactly right. That speech was a load of %@$*!
As a Republican, I’m annoyed and actually pissed off that I can’t find a rightblog who has anything to say about the elephant in the room vis a vis Romney, and “tolerance” of his religion: His “religion”, or cult as I would call it, is racist, sexist, intolerant of all other religions in a VERY offensive and libelous way, teaches old Jewish blood libels as part of its scripture and is oppressive and repressive towards women.
I know a lot of you secular lefties will say “well, so does the Bible” or “so did the Protestants and Catholics”, but most enlightened religions have come a long way toward ecumenical brotherhood, and no righteous religion condemns others to hell nor teaches slanderous lies about other religions.
from a great article on a point no conservative has referenced or paid heed to:
I believe Romney’s cult is not just wrong-headed, but evil, oppressive, intolerant and in fact anti-American. “Tolerating” Mormonism would be akin to tolerating the KKK, Neo-Nazies, Islamic suicide bombers or even Christian zealots who preach hate.
Someone on the Right needs to stand up and say that Romney is a bigot and a racist and has no place in the Republican party, the party that freed the slaves, that championed the Civil Rights Act when Democrat senators were filibustering it and Democrat Governors were standing in the doorway of schoolhouses to keep out black students.
I’m disgusted with my own party that Romney is considered a serious candidate, and in fact could game his way into winning the nomination.
It will wreck the party, millions will leave, millions more will not vote. I myself would work for fucking HILLARY! if Romney is nominated, and I detest Hillary! more than mere words can say.
Sorry for the long comment, I’m fucking pissed off.
Oh, and the other thing is Mormons are required to believe, and live out, the Bible and the Book of Mormon literally. No enlightened Christian religion does not recognize that mistranslation, political factionalism and just time itself have rendered the Bible merely a source of allegories and parables, not a factual document that anyone but a moron would take literally.
Yet Mormons do (and yes some Evangelical Christians, they are idiots as well), and his own Book of Mormon contains all the stuff that damns Romney as an intolerant, racist bastard.
As soon as I read his JFK line, I stopped reading through his speech. This speech was not from the heart, it was to win an election. I still think he has no chance of winning.
