I think stories about religion as a criteria for office, about Romney’s credibility and consistency(who exactly does the religious test apply to?), about selecting on a non-merit basis(which includes Judge Tuttman) are not helpful. He has bigger issues including Huckabee in Iowa and the targeting of his record in Massachsuetts but this doesn’t help. And I actually don’t think GOP voters like bigots or people who appeal to bigotry nor do they like selection by “bean counting” to include members of this or that group so in the end a “I don’t like these people in my Cabinet” stance is a loser. ( On that score, I think McCain was pretty much pitch perfect on the issue today in the call.)
