With a Vote of Thanks

We’d like to thank Bob King for his informative and engaging series of guest posts on Mormons in the next Congress. Just in case you missed them, the final installment (which got buried by evolution, gay marriage AND a post on reading by the lamp of one’s own conceit–all in 24 hours, sheesh!), with links to the earlier posts, is here.

All in favor, please manifest by the usual sign.


  1. Thanks, Bob. Mormons in the British Parliament next?!

  2. Mark Brown says:

    It appears that the voting is unanimous in the affirmative.

    Thank you, Bob. Your posts were interesting and informative, and helped me to appreciate and respect people in public office.

  3. Thanks, Bob! It was a real honor for BCC to have someone so knowledgeable and well-connected on political issues give us the inside scoop. Can we hope for a follow-up after the election to comment on what all ended up happening?

  4. Thanks, Bob.

  5. Thanks Bob. Great stuff.

  6. Thanks! (posted with my right hand)

  7. John Mansfield says:

    I enjoyed it quite a bit. Thanks.

  8. Kevin Barney says:

    I thought your posts were fascinating. Thanks so much.

  9. Little Sister says:

    (Hand raised high!)

  10. Great series, thanks for putting it together Bob.

  11. Thanks for your kind comments. I learned a great deal more about several of the Mormons in Congress (present and past), and I found out about other Church members in politics.

    I will be happy to do a follow-up on the post-election results. It will be interesting to see how Mormons do in what promises to be a hotly contested election that will probably produce record voter turnout.

    Thanks for your comments, encouragement, and new information.

  12. What is the usual sign? Because I refuse to give Bob the bird, if that’s what you mean.

  13. CJ Douglass says:

    Thanks Bob,

    This article was much more interesting because of you.


  14. Thanks, CJ Douglass (#13), for the link to the Oct 15th New York Times article on Senator Gordon Smith and his reelection campaign in Oregon. The article was extremely interesting. I appreciate your calling it to my attention. I have been out of the country and haven’t had good internet access for the last several days, and I might have missed it without your calling it to my attention. Glad the blog was useful!
