What should be the last word on the Mitt campaign

David Weigel at Reason's Hit and Run blog calls this the least convincing political quote of the week: "Americans do not respect believers of convenience. Americans tire of those who would jettison their beliefs, even to gain the world." - Mitt Romney, Dec. 6

The candidate alludes to Mark 18:36 (King James Version), where Jesus is quoted as saying, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" Careful readers will note that Jesus said nothing whatsoever about gaining the presidency.
