From the column: A National Public Radio blog recent said this about who is a GOP frontrunner for 2012: "Answer: No one so far. Mitt Romney, the venture capitalist and former governor of Massachusetts who ran a pretty good campaign in 2008, remains the class of the field but kept a low profile in 2009. Mike Huckabee led in some polls of Republicans that also found Sarah Palin popular. But Huckabee ended the year uncertain about running (and damaged by a clemency scandal from his days as Arkansas governor). Romney remains too much a general election candidate, a problem for the Democrats to be sure but far from the average Republican activist's cup of tea. His past positions on social issues were too styled to Massachusetts, and his Mormonism still leaves the party's religious base lukewarm at best."
So, Romney's a Bay State social issues guy & doesn't appeal to the GOP religious base -- and moderates polled have said they are 11% less likely than conservatives to vote for a Mormon POTUS (& liberals are 9% less likely than conservatives). So how does that make him a "general election" candidate?
8. Max Hall BYU football quarterback Hall got his 15 minutes of national fame after the BYU-Utah football game when he said: "I don't like Utah. In fact, I hate them," Hall said. "I hate everything about them. I hate their program. I hate their fans, I hate everything. ... I think the whole university, their fans and their organization, is classless." He later issued an apology and was sanctioned by the Mountain West Conference.
9. John Yettaw ...Yettaw gave an unfortunate impression of Mormons to the world.
10. Michael Otterson He was the spokesman behind the LDS Church statement at the Salt Lake City council meeting in early November that appears to be changing the politics in Utah for gays. "The Church supports these ordinances because they are fair and reasonable and do not do violence to the institution of marriage. They are also entirely consistent with the Church's prior position on these matters. The Church remains unequivocally committed to defending the bedrock foundation of marriage between a man and a woman. I represent a church that believes in human dignity, in treating others with respect even when we disagree -- in fact, especially when we disagree."
OK, a man who employs 15 employees in his retail shop doesn't need to "show respect" to a cross-dressing employee by allowing him to represent his business in any "gender affinity" he chooses for that given day.
Frustrated, finally I asked, politely for them to take me/us off their list.
But, But....they are all so nice!

Correction, Stephenie Meyer isn’t a vampire author, she instead, has destroyed the concept of the vampire in literature, turning into a whiny, zit faced, vegetarian, tween brat.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled two minutes of Mormon hating.

There are some angels and some demons on this list. Guess that would be true of any religion.
God bless patriots like Glenn Beck and those thousands who serve honorably without ever making the news.
Harry Reid is a MINO (Mormon in name only).
This list is worthless without Donny Osmond. He won “Dancing With The Stars”.
“Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nevada”
I never knew...
