Sorry

I just don’t have the energy for this one.

Non-Mormons Decide That Mitt Romney Isn’t A Good Mormon

I sincerely have a lot of sympathy for people whose job it is to wake up every day and try to come up with a new, fresh angle on the same story they’ve been covering for over a year.

Addendum

It occurred to me that didn’t address a particularly important point that Andrew Sullivan raised in his post responding to our Washington Post piece.
