26. I think if he seemed like a "regular guy" that wouldn't be a problem

but he always seems like he's the stand-in for the real candidate, speaking his lines with no conviction whatsoever.

Harry Reid's a Mormon, and he seems like a normal enough dude. My local congresscritter is a Mormon, and while he's a smarmy SOB, he doesn't act like he just landed here from another planet.

People already think Mormons are weird, and the fact that Rmoney doesn't seem well-oriented in society just underlines that anti-Mormon bias.

Here's a long Frank Rich article that covers some of it:

"His greatest passion is something hes determined to keep secret."
