Willard's no J.F.K.

A nugget from a quote within Maureen Dowd's latest pretty much sums up Romney's big speech about his Mormonism (in which he mentioned the word "Mormon" exactly once.):
"J.F.K.'s speech was to reassure Americans that he wasn't a religious fanatic," Mr. Krakauer agreed. "Mitt's was to tell evangelical Christians, "I'm a religious fanatic just like you.'"

One other observation about Romney; he seems to have no clue why he's running for President. There is no apparent reason, rationale, or purpose to his campaign, other than perhaps he's been so successful at everything else and he's so spookily artificial and generic, thus marketable, that he figured, why not?
