Small, Shrillish, Shrieky Sportswriter Suddenly

…sounds sensitive and sensible. I’m stunned.

…The President came out hot on this, too. Then as soon as he got hit he started going the other way, trying to be all things on this, saying, “I was not commenting and will not comment on the wisdom of making the decision to put a mosque there.” A one-man festival of political correctness.

Only this debate isn’t about correctness. Or freedom of religion. Or even the idea that if this mosque doesn’t get built, it will mean we are now deciding about religious freedom in this country one neighborhood at a time. It is about common sense.

…”It is not [Obama’s] role as President to pass judgment on every local project,” spokesman Bill Burton said.

Where is this guy Burton from, the moon? Or just the planet Robert Gibbs? This President passes judgment on just about everything, up to and including where he wanted LeBron James to play basketball. He came back to the proposed mosque on Saturday because he knew he looked bad, period, had to know he should be finding a way to say what the imperial mayor of New York should say:

That Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf can build his mosque, just not at Park Place, that somehow the honor of the city isn’t compromised, or the Constitution, if he doesn’t build there.

Everything Bloomberg and Barack Obama say about this sounds right. But if the only constituency that matters here – the ones left behind by the victims of Sept. 11 – think they’re wrong, they are.

If you’ve lost Lupica, you’ve…just lost.

    Lupica is the epitome of the shrill, I’m smarter than you, douche bag journalist. I’m suprised he’s going against the “One”. Still, sports writers should stick to sports.

  2. JeffS says:

    Some Presidents should stick to community organizing.

  3. Gary from Jersey says:

    That mosque will be named Cordoba. Maybe our ruling elite might want to look that up to see why.

  4. major dad says:

    History is a wonderful thing. Not that these bozos would ever bother reading any.

    Especially a certain clown named Olberman.
