Cry the beloved country

Posted By on Thu, Aug 19, 2010 at 12:24 PM

Check this out. One in four of all Americans and one in three conservative Republicans think our Christian president is a Muslim. A third of the country thinks a Muslim should not be allowed to run for president. Almost as many think a Muslim should not sit on the U.S. Supreme Court. 70 percent think building an Islamic cultural center two blocks from the World Trade Center site would be an insult to victims of 9/11.

Got it? All Muslims share the responsibility for 9/11 and Obama is one of them.

Oh, and not that it matters when nativism and bigotry stalk the land, but it sounds like that "mosque" may never get built anyway.
