And on the other side ...

WTF is Glenn Beck's problem now? He thinks that supporting Newt means ... you're racist??

“If you have a big government progressive, or a big government progressive in Obama… ask yourself this, Tea Party: is it about Obama’s race? Because that’s what it appears to be to me. If you’re against him but you’re for this guy (Gingrich), it must be about race. I mean, what else is it? It’s the policies that matter.”

Yeah, it is the policies that matter. And if you think Gingrich is another Obama, then you've got a big screw loose. YEESH.

Elsewhere, a group called The Florida Family Association is urging advertisers to pull spots from the new reality show “All-American Muslim":

“’All-American Muslim’ is propaganda clearly designed to counter legitimate and present-day concerns about many Muslims who are advancing Islamic fundamentalism and Sharia law,” the Florida group asserts in a letter it asks members to send to TLC advertisers.

Right. As if there are no everyday Muslims who don't subscribe to Sharia law and fundamentalism, and who act as apple pie American as anyone else. Please. Look, I'm for being as vigilant and as non-PC about radical Islam in the US as anyone else, but this show seems completely harmless. It's a freakin' reality show, for heaven's sake. There are literally uncounted numbers of them infesting the (cable) airwaves these days. What's one more about a non-fundie American Muslim family? C'mon.
