  •  Mitt went All The Way. (11+ / 0-)
    he dropped in a biblical reference, Psalm 127, more often associated with another religious tradition: the Quiverfull movement.

    In that Christian community, the verse Romney chose—"Children are a heritage of the Lord, and the fruit of the womb is His reward. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them"—has become almost synonymous with an absolutist rejection of all forms of contraception or family planning, and an embrace of what believers describe as "biblical patriarchy." Quiverfull adherents have as many children as God will allow, describe their offspring as "arrows" in a divine army, and follow rigid gender roles in the home, where men are the spiritual leaders and women the submissive helpmeets.

    Of course, he will make some kind of correction, adjustment, rearrangement of the EtchaSketch, as soon as someone gets a chance to ask him.

    After reading this earlier today:

    Romney would have erased Obama's nearly 5 million-vote victory margin and narrowly won the popular vote if voters had turned out as they did in 2004, according to Frey's analysis. In a first, black voter turnout rate passes whites
    I got the queasy idea that occasionally hit me during the campaign -         "What if he wins??"

    Now I need some Sleepytime Tea to settle the stomach and mind.
