The Washington Post’s bizarre journey into complete irrelevancy is reflected in this article. It claims that New Yorkers really, really like the idea of a mosque, and all those Republicans like Sarah Palin (Hiss, hiss) and Newt Gingrich (Booooooo) are really really, like, stupid because, like, how can they say anything at all about New York? They don’t even live there.
And of course, for typical man in the street interview, they just grab the first guy they can find in the New York streets. His name just happens to turn out to be Ali Mohammed. I doubt if he even really exists.
Oh, by the way. The latest polls show that 64% of New Yorkers hate the idea of the mosque. This, in the most liberal place in the world.
