An excellent Politico piece by Juana Summers in Politico notes that even if you’re not enthusiastic about privatizing Medicare, there’s still something to like about key Republican leaders: They’ll stop the United States from falling under the control of Muslim religious law:
As potential GOP candidates jockey to distinguish themselves heading into primary season, there seems to be at least one issue on which they widely agree: Sharia law is a continuing threat to the United Statesb,. [...] “A time to express our deepest gratitude to the U.S. military for taking out Osama bin Laden,” Bachmann tweeted. Expanding on her tweet on Facebook, she wrote, “Osama bin Laden dead! May this be the beginning of the end of Sharia-compliant terrorism.” [...] “Creeping Sharia is a huge issue here in the United States,” former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum told POLITICO.
Damn straight. Did you know that these days in New York City it’s not only possible to get kosher hotdogs from street vendors, you can also get halal kabobs? What’s the country coming to? Speaking of which, it turns out that when political entrepreneurs whip up discriminatory measures aimed at targeting one small disfavored religious minority that other religious minority groups suffer too, caught up in the wake.
