According to a Jan. 4 story in the Marietta (Ga.) Daily Journal, State Representative Judy Manning (R-Marietta) admits her fears that a Mormon in the White House could be the end of everything good and decent about America. But at least he isn't a Muslim!
“I think Mitt Romney is a nice man, but I’m afraid of his Mormon faith,” Manning said. “It’s better than a Muslim. Of course, every time you look at the TV these days you find an ad on there telling us how normal they are. So why do they have to put ads on the TV just to convince us that they’re normal if they are normal? … If the Mormon faith adhered to a past philosophy of pluralism, multi-wives, that doesn’t follow the Christian faith of one man and one woman, and that concerns me.”
She is correct. Can you name one time in the last, say, 10 years when you have looked at the TV and have not seen an advertisement telling you how normal Muslims are?
And why do car companies have to put on those ads to tell us how good their cars are? If their cars are so good, shouldn't we just know it?
And that raises the question of Geico. Everyone knows gekkos do not walk on their hind legs and shill for insurance companies in vaguely British or Australian accents. Just what is Geico trying to hide by trying to fool us like that?
And do you really need a commercial to tell you just how tasty Kentucky Fried Chicken is? Everyone knows, or should know, that it's finger lickin' good by now.
Therefore, Rep. Manning raises a valid point. A vote for Romney is a vote for polygamy and pluralism (whatever that is), and that's only a step away from having a Muslim in the White House (as if we didn't already, wink-wink!) who would try to trick us into thinking that some Muslims do not lust for the blood of American White Christian babies (which they pour on their breakfast cereal, for God's sake) and that would mean the end of commercials for Jimmy Dean Sausage since we all know how tasty it is and don't need to be told, but the Muslim/Mormon coalition would ban the commercials anyway because some people like coffee with their morning pork sausage and yibble bibble bibble bibble!
And there, we have summed up the GOP argument for 2012.
