I couldn’t help but notice that the podium used by Mitt Romney Thursday night to deliver his RNC acceptance speech looked eerily similar to the pulpit of the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City, Utah.
During the 2004 GOP convention, observers surmised that the George W. Bush campaign modeled its podium to look like a cross, which upset some in the Jewish community.
In my opinion, it’s very possible that the actual podium that Romney spoke from, and the design of the stage, was in the shape of a beehive — the Mormon symbol for industry.
So, you be the judge. Was the stage a copy of the Mormon Tabernacle pulpit, or is the fact that the two look sort of similar merely a coincidence? Get the conversation started on Urtak (below).
