Why is this newsworthy? Because liberal fear him!

This just in from the SL Tribune: Mitt Romney is descended from polygamists. Just like many of the other residents of the Great State of Utah (the Cap'n and I included), he has polygamists running rampant thru his family tree. Since he is also a conservative and against gay marriage, the SL Trib wanted to make sure that the national news media knew that his great-grandfather fled the US to Mexico so that he could continue praticing polygamy (ergo, DON'T VOTE FOR HIM).

Whether this makes any difference in the upcoming election is probably up for grabs. There will be some who are trying to justify voting against Romney without resorting to the fact that he is a Mormon and this will be the reason that they will give. Whatever this will mean for the elections is unknown at this time, but an interesting comment about this report can be found at The Corner. Kate O'Beirne states that in the run up to the 2008 Presidential primaries where the GOP field would/could include John McCain, Rudi Giuliani, George Allen and Newt Gingrich, the only candidate with "one wife would be the Mormon". Snicker, snicker.
