In this week’s copy of The Economist, they have quotes from the campaign trail.
“‘I only got three [dollars] in my pocket.’ Multimillionaire Mitt Romney has to borrow from an aide to buy a cup of coffee. ” emphasis my own.
Coffee? Did they say coffee? Mitt the Mormon drinks coffee?
I wonder then if his delinquency in keeping the Word of Wisdom is what spurred this comment: “‘What they have done is, they have totally dismissed that fact that this guy’s influence is going to lead people to hell.’ Televangelist Bill Keller on Christian conservative leaders who endorse Mitt Romney, a Mormon.” (all this on page 37 of the Nov 10th issue of the Economist)
Should I be nervous about a coffee-drinking Mormon too?
My favorite quote however does not concern Mormons in any way whatsoever but it is not to be missed.
“‘I took a city that was known for pornography and licked it to a large extent.’ Rudy Giuliani on how he saved New York.”
You what? Rudy?
