Crazy Christians for a Mormon
The chancellor of Bob Jones University has endorsed Mitt Romney.
Is it over now? Romney’s problem up until now has been whether he’ll get the support of the religious Right, seeing as it’s really the Christian Right. If someone like Bob Jones III can endorse him, I would think most of the Christian Right can get behind him.
I can’t decide whether this is a good or bad thing. The other leading contender is Guiliani, who’d be ridiculously bad on civil liberties and foreign policy, but probably wouldn’t piss me off on social issues. Romney will piss me off on social issues and foreign policy-wise he’s probably just as bad as Guiliani. Then again, maybe not.
Guiliani is the preferred candidate of Christopher Hitchens, by the way. That’s not surprising, but damn it’s disappointing.
