Jon Stewart has noticed two things related to Mitt Romney's Mormonism as he's locked up the GOP nomination. First, many of the Republicans who once dinged Romney for how "fake" his religion is have now come around into thinking he's such a great guy. Which, secondly, has left the real Mormon-hating to those who do it best: Democrats. Roll clips of Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer's and MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell's attacks on a Romney's faith, as if Mormonism is the only religion with a troubled past. "You can't cherrypick the worst aspects of a religion and then hold every member of that religion solely responsible for it," Stewart points out, noting how some might find Jesus's virgin birth a little suspect, too.
