This has nothing to do with Mitt Romney, but...

But it does at least have something to do with an old post. In February 2006 I asked if anyone had seen the Cheers episode where Rebecca mentions that she wishes that more men could send flowers and Sam says,"Mormons can't send flowers?! I knew they couldn't dance."

Well through the miracle of YouTube, I bring you that clip.

By the way, I recently read Hugh Hewitt's book "A Mormon in the White House?" and thought it was extremely positive about Romney. It's a good read for anyone wondering about the role religion should play in electing a president. Hewitt himself is not a Mormon but quotes Martin Luther as saying "I would rather be led by a Turk than an incompetent Christian."

A little break from Romney-blogging? :)

Ben -- I assume that Mitt Romney is the Turk in that analogy. Also, I'm looking forward to the Optometry Students For Romney blog.

Marc -- yeah, it's more or less a permanent hiatus now, with the rare exception of when I find an awesome youtube video.

Sorry, I should have been a little more clear on that quote about the Turk and the incompetent Christian. The point I meant to get across (and the point Martin Luther was making as well) is that a leader should be chosen based on their competence and leadership skills and not solely on their religious background. Since many Evangelical Christians don't believe Mormons are christians, many Evangelicals have wondered if it would be appropriate to elect a "non-christian" such as Romney to office. I think the obvious answer to that is Yes if he is the most competent leader.

I was just joking about Turk thing. But that does remind me that there's a distict lack of Turkish Americans in the field this year.
