Hell no to hatred. Towel heads want to build mosque over Ground Zero, New York Post :
Angry relatives of 9/11 victims last night clashed with supporters of a planned mosque near Ground Zero at a raucous community-board hearing in Manhattan.
After four hours of public debate, members of Community Board 1 finally voted 29-1 in support of the project. Nine members abstained, arguing that they wanted to table the issue and vote at a later date.
The board has no official say over whether the estimated $100 million mosque and community center gets built. But the panel’s support, or lack of it, is considered important in influencing public opinion.
If you want outreach, how about a pig farm in Mecca or just one Christian church or Jewish Temple anywhere in Saudi Arabia?

Watergate II now down to misdemeanor, by Mary Foster, Associated Press :
NEW ORLEANS â€” Four conservative activists accused of trying to tamper with the phones in Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office pleaded guilty Wednesday to misdemeanor charges of entering federal property under false pretenses.
Remember the over wrought coverage when Jame O’Keefe et al were arrested? The comparison to Watergate? Now the charges appear to be fancy version of trespassing.,
Cuomo Jr. tabs Rochester’s Mayor Bob for LG:
ALBANY, NEW YORK (WXXI ) – Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Cuomo has chosen a Rochester Mayor Robert Duffy for his lieutenant governor in the race.
Cuomo,at an event in midtown Manhattan., says Duffy, a former police chief, shares his fiscally responsible values, and has a proven record of reigning in spending, and holding the line on taxes, two tenets that Cuomo has already said he wants to govern by, if he’s elected.
Mayor Bob, Robert Duffy was certainly an improvement over Mayor Bill, William Johnson. Then that is small coimpliment. Mayor Bob did cancel Mayor Bill insanely expensive Fast Ferry, but seems intent digging up a perfectly good street to re-water the Erie Canal. In New York State, lieutanant governors are treated like ugly step children. That is they should never be seen or heard.

Jason Whitlock goes stupid, from Kansas City Star :
Things are more complex now. People once regarded as three-fifths human by the founders now have a constitutional right to be treated fairly.
Al Gore mangled the Constitution. Then Gore is stupid. Is Whitlcck?
