Dean Barnett had a fantastic piece yesterday on the Boston Globe‘s Mormon baiting/moral preening. Don’t miss it.
Also on the Romney beat, Brian McGrory has a good column today on whether or not Romney will seek reelection in 2006. His piece is marred only by this nonsense: “[Romney’s advisers] also point out that Howard Dean nearly won the Democratic nomination as a former governor and that Jimmy Carter, not to mention Ronald Reagan, captured the White House while campaigning as former, rather than current governors.”
Howard Dean nearly won the Democratic nomination last year? Yes, Dean was the absolute front-runner until Democrats started voting. Then he was revealed as the distant third/close fourth choice even among Democratic voters. Please, let’s not get caught up in Dean-mania, again.
