2. U.N.: Afghan Death sentence for journalist distributing an article with anit-Islam sentiment is “a possible misuse of the judicial process.” This is incredible. I thought the Taliban was gone. A death sentence should not be imposed simply because they say something (or in this case distribute something) negative about their belief system. Crazy.

And that’s a problem for Romney, who would like to become the alternative to John McCain among conservatives who oppose the Arizona senator. But he has very tough competition from Huckabee, who’s forcing people to re-think his run at a time when he was supposed to be out of the game.
