Romney's not a Mormon, he's a Scientologist.

In an interview on FOXNews, Mitt Romney was asked for his two favorite books.

The first one he mentioned is the Bible. I hope he takes some time to read that one again.

The second was Battlefield Earth by L Ron Hubbard.

Yes, that L Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology.

Cobert had a little fun with that choice.

Maybe Mitt can get Tom Cruise out of the closet (gratuitous South Park reference).

6 questions Mitt Romney must now answer:

1) Mr. Romney, you said L. Ron Hubbard’s Battlefield Earth was your favorite novel. Then later you clarified by saying it was only your favorite SCIENCE FICTION novel, and that it was written before Scientology was founded. So now that you know it was actually written 29 years AFTER Scientology was founded, is it still your favorite science fiction novel?

2) Most critics outside of Scientology found this novel to be dreadful. Many of them couldn’t even finish it – it was that bad. But you described it as “fun.” Specifically, what part(s) of it were “fun?”

3) If this is your favorite science fiction novel, what other science fiction novels have you read that were, by definition, not as good as Battlefield Earth?

4) When did you read Battlefield Earth?

5) Since Battlefield Earth came out in 1982, you couldn’t have read it before then, what led you to believe that it was written before Scientology was founded?

6) Battlefield Earth is over 1,000 pages. Is it the biggest novel you’ve ever read? How long did it take you to read?
