"Sometimes Romney, he looks right into you. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about Romney... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at you, doesn't seem to be living...until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then...ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'."

If even half of what this article says is true, then Romney is the kind of my-way-or-the-highway executive asshole who has no business attempting to make sausage with the legislative branch.

But at a 1994 campaign event, Ann Romney told low-income women in no uncertain terms that they should stay at home with their kids, according to Judith Dushku, a prominent Mormon feminist who knew the Romneys over several decades and attended the forum.

Isn't that like being a homosexual Evangelical? Or a pro-choice Catholic?

Sure, blame women again. That's been working for you so well!

I went to his office and I congratulated him on taking a pro-choice position. And his response was - Well, they told me in Salt Lake City I could take this position

Ah, the Mormon Vatican will not be pleased if this tidbit gains any traction. Then again, they're not exactly known for being consistent.

When they change the Book of Mormon yet again to flip-flop on key issues such as polygamy and the status of black people, will they send out a newsletter? An email?

It's like being a black Mormon.

Helen Claire Sievers, who also worked on the early days of Exponent II, told the National Journal that she once told Romney that spousal abuse was more widespread than she would have guessed. Romney replied that "he was pretty sure it wasn't happening. ... There was a man who told Mitt that he was abusive to his wife, and Mitt said, 'No, you're not.' It was so hard for him to understand what was thought of as spousal abuse." He did, however, agree to meet with women involved in the Mormon feminist community and to try to simultaneously marry them.

Dude, Mormo (that's the name of the mormon god, I'm pretty sure) is kind of a fickle dude. For the longest time Mormo said that blacks couldn't be bishops and stuff then suddenly he was all like, "Lol jk guys, the blacks are cool now. Oh and btw, no more polygamy, sorry bros."

/Praise Mormo

Yeah, you guys keep laughing it up. When he loses the election, his brain is gonna snap and he's gonna go all Westworld on us.

None of us will be laughing then.

Give him a couple drinks, and he can talk to women just fine. And you won't eaven notice his Indian accent.

It's even funnier, because just as everyone in politics uses a teleprompter, they're also all slightly creepy out-of-touch megamillionaire robots. Your analogy is perfect!

I'm always fascinated by the articles that get a lot of play on Fark. Here you've got one that basically says "Yeah, I know Mitt well, and I can tell you for certain that he looks at women like dogs look at card tricks," and it's not getting a ton of play. But give us something small and pithy, and we go nuts. We're a weird bunch.

All I can say is go look at the Daily Show clip of him saying the state should pay for daycare for single mom's so they can get "real" jobs. End of story.

I'm honestly not sure if either polygamy or the status of black people is in the book of Mormon. A big problem with the Mormons is that they have to have a living prophet and anything the prophet says is the word of God, so the next prophet comes along and feels "a burning in his bossom" and changes or clarifies what God's ruling is. All this is happening in an age where there are written and now video records so the Mormons have more trouble saying "we never taught that".

Under the leadership of Joseph Smith, several African-Americans, including Elijah Abel were admitted to the priesthood. But that policy changed sometime before 1852, because in that year, church president Brigham Young made a pronouncement to the Utah Territorial Legislature stating that African-Americans "cannot hold the Priesthood."

The statement - which refers to the Curse of Cain as the reason for the policy - was given in response to the question, "What chance is there for the redemption of the Negro?" Young responded, "The Lord had cursed Cain's seed with blackness and prohibited them the Priesthood."

In 1859 Horace Greeley, editor of the New York Tribune, interviewed Brigham Young on the subject of slavery:

H.G. - What is the position of your Church with respect to Slavery?
B.Y. - We consider it of Divine institution, and not to be abolished until the curse pronounced on Ham shall have been removed from his descendants.
H.G. - Are there any slaves now held in this Territory?
B.Y. - There are.
H.G. - Do your Territorial laws uphold Slavery?
B.Y. - Those laws are printed - you can read them for yourself. If slaves are brought here by those who owned them in the States, we do not favor their escape from the service of those owners.
H.G. - Am I to infer that Utah, if admitted as a member of the Federal Union, will be a Slave State?
B.Y. - No; she will be a Free State. Slavery here would prove useless and unprofitable. I regard it generally as a curse to the masters. I myself hire many laborers and pay them fair wages

After 1978 black people were no longer cursed or something. It's cool. In 1979 the Utah Jazz moved from N.O.

FTA: So when Romney began claiming that he was pro-choice in his 1994 election, Dushku told the Globe, "I went to his office and I congratulated him on taking a pro-choice position. And his response was - Well, they told me in Salt Lake City I could take this position, and in fact I probably had to in order to win in a liberal state like Massachusetts."

When JFK ran for election, many voters were squeamish at the idea of a Catholic POTUS, thinking that his allegiance would be to the Papacy instead of the USA.

In Romney's case, perhaps it is a legitimate concern that his first allegiance would be to "Salt Lake City."

They were "Abel" to over come the curse of Cain.

I always laugh at the "I'm a Mormon" ads on tv were they have the black person on there.
