I don't hang around Republican evangelical types, so I can't say if Bob Novak

have all of a sudden
discovered Mormonism as a subject of serious examination and screen entertainment. Mitt's getting it from both the religious right and secular left. ...

Religion is an important component of judging a candidate. I don't want a religious zealot anywhere near the red button or constitution.
