That Sly Smirk of His

It's been a long, long time since I had a cartoon in the newspaper. But I did one for today.

In case you haven't heard the story, an evangelical pastor who is a big Rick Perry supporter told evangelicals not to vote for a Mormon, because it would be bad to have a Mormon as president and that Mormonism is a cult. And Rick Perry initially did nothing to restrain this supporter, and eventually did start distancing himself.

I had a problem with this pastor before I even heard him talk. He just had this dumb looking smirk on his face, like a cat who swallowed the canary. I was just thinking how smug he looked as he said things that were just plain wrong. It's fine for him to not want to vote for Mitt Romney, and it's fine for him to not vote for him because he's a Mormon. But to say Mormons are not Christians is nothing more than a gross misunderstanding.

Way to go Anderson Cooper for confronting this guy:
