Ooh! Ooh! Shocking stuff! Missouri's Democratic won't answer questions about an Islamic Community Center being built in the State of New York! Except, of course, that he already did answer questions about it. From Friday, August 20, in the Post-Dispatch:
Rep. Russ Carnahan, D-St. Louis • "When Bosnians in south St. Louis County sought to build a mosque a few years ago, the community refused to let it become a political football, and at the end of the day, the entire community — Christians, Jews and Muslims — came together to find compromise. While it clearly wasn't as sensitive as this situation, I think the lesson applies. We should leave the politics out of this so that the people of New York can find a resolution that is right for their community."So next time, oh brilliant tea partiers, perhaps you could try reading the paper or using this thing called Google before deciding to stalk Carnahan and scream about it.
Oh, and I like totally demand a retraction and an apology and stuff.
