Adam Serwer (Mother Jones) and Matthew Schmitz (First Things)

On Adamize, Adam and Matthew discuss Romney’s comments on contraception during the second debate. Matthew links Romney’s Mormonism to his position on abortion. Looking ahead to the third debate, Matthew predicts Obama will win due to an edge on foreign policy. Which candidate would actually do more to rebuild the economy? Romney linked gun violence to single mothers, but Adam and Matthew wonder why he didn’t talk about the war on drugs instead. The news of Dinesh D’Souza’s sex scandal and resignation provokes a bit of d’schadenfreude from Adam, and Matthew explains how D’Souza earned his following among social conservatives in the first place.
