Mormons in Politics
Mitt Romney was unexpectedly not attacked and smeared for being a Mormon during the election. It was brought up occasionally, but not usually by any mainstream media types. Whenever it was mentioned it was done almost in passing and never as a major talking point.
This stands out as very strange because the media surely didn’t like Mitt and had no problem smearing him any chance they could. They live for that stuff, so why no serious attack of his “cult member” status?
I may know why. While doing biographical research on the current Senate I learned something interesting. The Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, is also a member of the LDS church.
It seems entirely plausible that the democrat propaganda sources wouldn’t want to attack their target for something that one of its own leaders is also a part of.
Mitt came along at the right time with Reid to cover him on that. Too bad though it didn’t really matter.
