Romney to Give the “Mormon Speech”


Political observers have been wondering for a while if Mitt Romney will make a big speech on the topic of faith. He will do so this Thursday (according to CNN, which is calling it the “Mormon speech”). I don’t know if it’s because unwelcome whispers about Mormonism are circulating amongst the Republican base, or if it’s because Romney is no longer the frontrunner in a state he thought he had sewn up. Whatever the case may be, tune in Thursday morning. And bring the popcorn.
