The Metropolitan Transportation Authority just gave its blessing to a disturbing effort to tar the Cordoba Initiative by association with the 9/11 attacks, brought to you by the American Freedom Defense Initiative.
The latest GOP election sleight-of-hand? Divert attention from the news that projected Republican gains are going to be confined largely to the South by amping up the rhetoric on the mosque project in Lower Manhattan.
Obama showed that the "Ground Zero mosque" argument is not a simple one, and in fact has two major segments. The first is whether or not the mosque "should be allowed" to be built. The second is whether it "should" be built.
I highly encourage those who haven't had a Manhattan, or who have not tried the different variations of it, to experience them all. They are all magical in their own way and need to be appreciated for their own merits.
