CREDIT:

One last point about Newt Gingrich’s objections to building a mosque “near Ground Zero” on the grounds that the United States ought to more closely resemble Saudi Arabia. What, exactly, is the proposed rule here? No mosques south of Canal Street? None in Manhattan? Or is that two blocks away is too close but somehow three blocks away he’d find unobjectionable?
