Will we be able to have a serious conversation

One of the things I truly admire about Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and Chris Christie is that all three men speak to their audiences as adults. They assume that the listener is thoughtful & intelligent and will therefore ignore sweeping cliches.

I don't know that we can count on that assumption, especially with CNN, NBC, ABC and CBS looking for ways to distort the serious ideas these men have put forth.

The start of the religious war

One of the comments that got under my skin after the Ryan announcement was that it was the first time that there wasn't a Protestant at all on the ticket. The guys at Ricochet said that we're going to know everything about Mormonism by the time the election rolls around.

I suspect that somewhere along the line, a black "Christian" commentator is going to make an issue out of religion. It can't be a white man or woman; and it certainly won't be a Jew or Muslim. My gut says it will happen in mid to late September.
