Here’s a humorous look at far right Christian Pastor Terry Jones’ “Burn a Koran Day” scheduled for September 11th in Gainesville, FL. The Pastor is planning to proceed with his anti-Muslim action even following blistering attacks about the danger his actions could create for American troops and American foreign policy from General Petraeus, Attorney General Holder and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Not too surprisingly, leaders in the tea party-addled GOP have failed to condemn this hateful action that has potential to harm our troops.

Since I posted this, I’ve seen reports that some within the weak-kneed GOP Tea Party and their allies have decided that it’s okay to go in the water and to protest the Koran burning. TPM Media had this to say:
We’re cataloguing a slew of generally anti-mosque folks who are today coming out against that nutso church’s plan to hold a Koran-burning festival on 9/11. So far today, Haley Barbour says it’s not a “good idea.” John Boehner says it’s “unwise.” And now honorary Republican Joe Lieberman says the church should “reconsider and drop their plans.”
