DavidL's Breakfast ScrambleHow to handle the mosque, from Stink Progress:

The American Society for Muslim Advancement and the Cordoba Initiative recently presented plans to build a community center two blocks away from Ground Zero in New York City that would include “a mosque, performance art center, gym, swimming pool and other public spaces.” Even though a community advisory board voted in favor of the proposal, conservatives have continued to attack the plan, with Rep. Peter King (R-NY) calling it “offensive.”

On Wednesday, a man named “Tony” called into the KTRH-AM (Houston, TX) radio show of right-wing radio host Michael Berry in support of the Muslim center. First, Berry asked the caller whether “Tony” was his real name, because with his accent, he didn’t “sound like a ‘Tony.'” He repeatedly tried to link to the mosque to terrorists, eventually saying that if the mosque is built, he hopes someone blows it up:

There is utterly no need to blow of the mosque.   Just sneak in convert the building into thirteen story pig sty.   Call it creative non-violence

AAP rejoins civilized world:

(CNN) — The American Academy of Pediatrics has rescinded a controversial policy statement raising the idea that doctors in some communities should be able to substitute demands for female genital cutting with a harmless clitoral “pricking” procedure.

“We retracted the policy because it is important that the world health community understands the AAP is totally opposed to all forms of female genital cutting, both here in the U.S. and anywhere else in the world,” said AAP President Judith S. Palfrey.

Peggy the problem is in your mirror, Wall Street Journal:

I don’t see how the president’s position and popularity can survive the oil spill. This is his third political disaster in his first 18 months in office. And they were all, as they say, unforced errors, meaning they were shaped by the president’s political judgment and instincts.

There was the tearing and unnecessary war over his health-care proposal and its cost. There was his day-to-day indifference to the views and hopes of the majority of voters regarding illegal immigration. And now the past almost 40 days of dodging and dithering in the face of an environmental calamity. I don’t see how you politically survive this.

Peggy the basic problem is not Dim Won,  Barack Obama, a man with no prior record of executive experence and no education credentials.   Obama can not pronounce the word competence without the aid of his teleprompter.   The MSM could air drop a battalion of reporters into Wasilla, to investigate a sitting governor with a clear track record of executive experience.   Yet the MSM wanted us to believe that Dim Wo was some Magic Negro with executive experience who could magically solve our nation’s problem.

Obama”s level of competence is not a shock for those who took his public and political record at face value.   Obama was never a god yet Noonan is in shock that her enlightened one is a ideologically driven idiot.

Pass the popcorn.  It is the Ragin’ Cajun versus the White House, By Anne E. Kornblut, Washington Post:

[Janes] Carville — nicknamed the Ragin’ Cajun as far back as his days as an adviser to President Bill Clinton — has grown more outraged with each passing day, culminating with his taking a boat tour of the damaged waterways on CNN earlier in the week.

Now irritated White House officials are pushing back.

“James has always been a very passionate person, and this is obviously a very emotional issue for him,” said David Axelrod, a White House senior adviser. “What I haven’t heard is exactly what he thinks we should do that we aren’t doing. We’re just looking for constructive ideas, and we’re not turning any away.”

Sanity is not exactly Carville’s strong suit, but I do enjoy ‘ratricide.
