Another Week, Another Romney Gaffe

Slick Mitt Romney has put his foot in his mouth again. This time he's insulted all Islamic Americans by stating that their small percentage of the population would bar them for consideration in his presidential cabinet.

Muslims represent roughly 1 percent of the United States population. By comparison Mormons make up about 1.8 percent. If Muslims are barred from Romney's cabinet because of their small numbers, by that logic we probably shouldn't expect to see many latter day saints, farmers (1 percent of the population), multi millionaires (less than 1 percent), fortune 500 CEOs, former right wing Congressmen, retired generals, economists, etc. in the cabinet either.

If Romney goes with the averages, his cabinet will be stuffed with people who are overweight, get their news information from Saturday Night Live or MTV and own pink lawn flamingos.
