Do you bother coming to Massachusetts?

The Los Angeles Times is the latest to praise Willard Mitt's presidential prospects by touting his Massachusetts record.

Hey folks -- do you bother to come to Massachusetts to report? Or even bother with Googling the polls showing Willard an anchor around the neck of his running mate? Could it be why she's rolling in the gutter?

Still even the Times' love-in about the "tall urbane" (former) governor shows he will have problems with the Theocons who still populate the party -- despite Mark Foley. Listen to Pastor Ted Haggard, president of the National Assn. of Evangelicals in Colorado Springs, Colo.
"We evangelicals view Mormons as a Christian cult group. A cult group is a group that claims exclusive revelation. And typically, it's hard to get out of these cult groups. And so Mormonism qualifies as that."
And please the lack of attention to a simple matter of squishy positions on issues like choice. I believe the term is flip-flop.

But it is worth noting I actually agree with the Mittser on something.
Romney admitted in an interview that he would have been "a lot smarter to stay in Michigan" if he had foreseen his plunge into GOP politics.
Or Utah. Or New Hampshire.
