“I am not alleging by any stretch that Romney is a polygamist and approves of [the] polygamy lifestyle, but his father was born into [a] polygamy commune in Mexico.”” — Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer who, hey, just sayin’, doesn’t think women will take too kindly to Mitt Romney’s polygamist roots. (via newsweek)
Listen: I really don’t want Mitt Romney to be president. There are many reasons for that. But I’m not at all comfortable with the idea that we should criticize him because of something his family was actively engaged in two generations ago (being born into something is not your fault…)
I do think there are ways that Republicans are actively sabotaging their relationship with women voters. I don’t think this is one of them.
So what I’m saying is: Shut up, Brian.
True that. nwktumblr doesn’t want to be judged by the actions of its family over the past however many generations either.
