Morals, Mormons, and Mitt

And we're now connected - after a long distance directions from a call center presumably in India.

I stayed at the office until 7:30pm last night. It was a long, long day, but I'd really rather spend the MLKJ holiday at home than at the office.

Interesting article. The first paragraph was frustrating because I hate the assumption that a person is expected to vote for the candidate that fits their demographic, and how dare this woman fit into 3 demographic categories? It's not fair to the candidates who get pigeonholed by the media, and it's insulting to anyone who takes voting seriously. Even if the writer doesn't have that point of view, it's a shame the article leads off by perpetuating the idea. At least the writer left in the quote from the woman that she doesn't vote that way, but it was way down the page.

I remember that back in 2000, George Bush had to answer some media attacks on his stand as a born-again Christian. It wasn't a JFK moment by any stretch, and Al Gore responded by making a show of going to his church for the next few weeks, but for a couple of weeks there was an attempt to turn it into a big issue.

I much prefer the Washington Post article about you. I used to have that bookmarked but lost it in a computer switch at work.
