The McLaughlin Group Mormonism Meltdown [VIDEO]

After right wing pundits praise Romney's over-hyped "faith speech", Lawrence O'Donnell got mad as hell because he just couldn't take it anymore.
Several progressive websites including ours were highly critical of Mitt Romney's major speech on religion last week. He was supposed to address concerns about Mormonism but instead cast America as a Christian nation exclusively (suggesting that atheists are somehow anti-American) and shamelessly tried to use the memory of JFK to evoke sympathy for himself. However, as expected most of the television media were immediate in their praise for Romney. I saw Chris Matthews call it "the best speech of the campaign so far." And then on The McLaughlin Group, even the panel's token liberal Eleanor Clift had little bad to say about Mitt. Enter Lawrence O'Donnell who took Romney to task for not disavowing some of ugly historical legacy of Mormonism. Check out the video to your right for more.
