Ron Johnson's religious funspots

'How I get painted as an extremist is beyond me.' — Ron Johnson
It would be "incredibly unfortunate," if a mosque was built in New York City blocks away from Ground Zero, the U.S. senate candidate Ron Johnson said Friday when asked at a Racine [WI] Journal Times Editorial Board meeting.

"Those folks [the Islamics] are trying to poke a stick in our eye,"* Johnson said. "I just hope the zoning officials and the city, the state revisit that, rezone that piece of property."
State rezoning with the express purpose of prohibiting the free exercise of religion? Yes, that oughta work. This guy is dangerous.

* Palin much?
