Bob Novak Is Frickin Weird
Yeah, you knew that already, but today's column is just outright bizarre. In the column, he suggests that a movie about a massacre carried out by Mormons in 1857 could hurt Mitt Romney. Forget about the fact that the incident happened 150 years ago, or that it isn't proven that Brigham Young authorized the massacre, just concentrate on this - the movie stars Jon Voight. Who the hell is going to see a movie who's main star is Jon Voight (though I heard Ted Haggard was a big fan of Midnight Cowboy)?
All kidding aside, this column is inappropriate and wrong. Novak uses the pretense of this movie to bring the issue of Romney's religion to the forefront. In this day and age, that just shouldn't happen.
I know one thing for sure - if someone wrote a similar column about Opus Dei, Novak would be screaming "anti-Catholic bias" at the top of his evil lungs. But you can't ask for intellectual consistency from the Prince of Darkness, can you?
