The Brouhaha over the Ground Zero Mosque

Excellent essay from Robert Wright at the NYT Opinionator site.

Sickens me that all the Palinistas/Baptist preachers/Tea Party/Glenn Beck wannabes are so troubled by the prospect of a mosque near Ground Zero.  FDR had it dead on: "we have nothing to fear but . . . fear itself."  Yet these hyper-American The-World-Belongs- to- Jesus types (who seem to be intent on the conversion of Kurdistan, and whom the Kurdish leadership seem to be playing for suckers) play the fear trump-card like college kids playing pinochle.
