Among modern conservatives, I respect the opinion of Southern-born Kathleen Parker. When she disagrees with the president or progressives, I do not believe she is ignorant or a racist. She has the intellect to recognize that Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck and their minions are intellectually challenged. I will admit that when I see a Tea Party event with people holding up signs of Obama with a bone through his nose, claiming he was born in Africa, I do think "stupid, racist and uninformed."
I think building a cathedral in place of the mosque would be a great idea. All you Christian capitalists would have to do is to raise enough money to buy the property at a hefty profit, too high to refuse. Apparently those opposed to the mosque aren't opposed to it enough to put their money where their mouths are.
Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin present a fifth-grade intellect of the world randomly confounded with ideas that appear to come from the Christian Identity movement. If you think these people should be our leaders, then you are part of "that there ignorant problem."
