Low-Blow Politics In South Carolina: A McCainiac Plays The Religion Card

Who is the woman at left? Her name is Cyndi Mosteller and she is Chairman of the Charleston County, South Carolina Republican Party.

Why am I talking about her here? Because it looks like the religiously-based electoral hijinks have begun in South Carolina, and Ms. Mosteller is apparently the point person in that effort. She's also a high-profile McCain adviser. The entire sordid event is exposed at Article 6 Blog, where I am a co-author. Dean Barnett correctly perceives that I smell a rat.

What do you think?

Harold Hutchison at Called As Seen has a suggested Romney response.

See my post at Called as Seen  for my thoughts.

Romney needs to retaliate against McCain for this - if only to show he is not a wimp. A very snappy comment about McCain's respect for the First Amendment could be in order.

Amen Hedgehog. Poor Sen. Allen has been hit by the right for being a closet Jew and using the "N" word. The dirt on the right or wherever McCain is hiding these days has also started. If McCain doesn't like him, Romney just went up in stature in my book.
Good post on "Article 6" blog. It should get a lot more national circulation.

This is a comment on the Article6 blog, because I couldn't find where to contact you there. I checked on whether Karl Rove were LDS, find that he never has been although he was raised in Utah and in fact attended my high school (several years after I did, so I didn't know him.)

I think Romney is above retaliation and it remains to be seen what kind of involvement McCain has in this, though I can’t find a McCain denial on the net. Also to address the allegation the LDS Church hates African Americans please visit - Anti-LDS sources love to cite the fact that African Americans were prohibited from holding the priesthood (which is more of an obligation to service than a privilege in the LDS church) in the early church as “proof” that LDS people hate African Americans. Anti-LDS sources also love to quote early LDS members misguided attempts to explain the why, and by today’s standards these explanations seem racist. The fact is though that the early Latter-Day saints were viewed as a great threat and persecuted because of their anti-slavery views. Joseph Smith (LDS church founder) wanted the slaves to be freed, educated, and given equal rights. African Americans (including Joseph Smith’s adopted brother) also enjoyed full fellowship in the church, worshiping with Caucasian members, even during times when it was popular for other churches to have segregated congregations.

It’s not about race, gender or whatever. It’s about policy and how to get us out this mess. So far I’m seeing nothing very plausible from McCain.
