There's a Mormon Cult Bishop running for President and most people don't know what his church actually dictates. What the cartoon doesn't address is what family members endure when they try to leave the Mormon community or anything about the odd rituals that occur in their windowless church in Utah.
I have known a few recovering Mormons in my time. As a landlord, I have had the pleasure of meeting many families. When the two issues meet, you can get an enlightening crash course in what painstaking measures these people have to prepare before making their escape. More so when there are younger children in the troop.
Americans should know about any Presidential candidate before voting. We all know what a tough vetting process Obama and Clinton put us through during the primary four years ago. We still chose Obama over McCain in the General.
Obama has been a gentleman through the three and a half years he's served considering the crazy, hurtful and slanderous crap that's been hurled his way. That alone should indicate how right we were to elect him the first time. Who else could maintain their equanimity under such an endless assault?
Since I am in New York, the urgency to get out and vote for Obama is less intense, here we GOTV for the down ticket candidates trying to unseat the few Tea Party fruitcakes that made it in two years ago.
Enjoy the informative cartoon and think about how nice it must be on planet Kolob this time of year.

To finish out the last days in Ohio making shit up about the car companies that provide much of the employment and state pride within that very state, takes balls. Willard is delusional if he thinks this will help.
If you follow me on twitter you may remember when I suggested keeping a live mic around this guy at all times until the 6th. Now, I realize, the mic doesn't have to be stealthily placed to catch Romney saying stupid comments. He's actually offering these words in speeches.
I am astonished each and every day that there are people around us cheering this guy on as a Presidential candidate.
Even in New York where I tend to assume people are more educated, there are still the desperate Tea Party souls towing the Koch Brothers astroturf lines and waving "Don't Tread On Me" flags along Rt 9W in Ulster, N.Y.
May I suggest taking your prescribed dosage of Klonopin and call me in the morning.

FRANK SCHAEFFER, New York Times best-selling author, posed this question in the Huffington Post last week:
According to polls 73 percent of WHITE evangelicals will be voting for Mitt Romney.
If the polls are correct here's the question I'd like to ask evangelicals using their own style of language/concerns/theological thinking as applied to their choice:
What's the explanation for the fact that WHITE American evangelicals made the allegedly philandering lying ignorant braggart lapsed Roman Catholic Dinesh D'Souza their anti-Obama hero, embrace a pro-choice Mormon bishop who promoted abortion and Planned Parenthood in MA, are working to elect a job-destroying tax-avoiding lying flip-flopping-tell-anyone-anything-they-want-to-hear Swiss bank account collecting draft dodger running with a disciple of the God-hating, Jesus-mocking hater-of-the-poor Ayn Rand, for their presidential candidate and look the other way as a crazed ultra-Zionist many Israeli Jews fear billionaire casino owner who is being investigated for allegedly making billions off the dirtiest Chinese gambling Communist Party-controlled outfit in the world funds the enterprise, at the very same time as Franklin Graham sold his ailing father Billy's soul and denied core evangelical theology by taking Mormonism off the Billy Graham organization's list of cultsTrinity-denying, casino-money-grubbing billionaire-coddling, earth-destroying global-warming denying Mormon bishop win respectability for his dead-Jews-baptizing-polygamy-rooted-reality-denying-interplanetary Masonic lodge-embracing faith in an election against an exemplary modest faithful husband good father compassionate smart BLACK evangelical Christian President who's major accomplishments include saving the economy, ending a war, killing our greatest enemy, giving health care to children and the poor and the "least of these" and who has tried to reduce the number of abortions by helping women escape poverty in a reenactment of the lesson of the parable of the Good Samaritan?
Frank is a survivor of both polio and an evangelical/fundamentalist childhood, an acclaimed novelist of 4 novels including Portofino who overcame severe dyslexia, a home-schooled and self-taught documentary movie director, a feature film director and producer of four low budget Hollywood features Frank has described as "pretty terrible." Frank's nonfiction includes "Keeping Faith-A Father-Son Story About Love and the United States Marine Corps" and AWOL-The Unexcused Absence of America's Upper Classes From Military Service and How It Hurts Our Country."
