Tancredo Deserves It

The Left is jumping on U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo with both feet. Well, let me get one of my stompers in there, too.

This is not a war against Islam. It's possible for Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus and atheists to live next door to each other, borrow each other's lawn mowers, share recipes, talk about their differences and similarities, learn about life from each other's perspective and not give up their own religions or principles.

If it were a splinter group of people calling themselves Christians who were causing all this trouble -- say if the KKK had somehow hijacked power in some shipwrecked countries -- the answer would not be to bomb the Vatican.

Legitimate Islam has some housecleaning to do, but we don't make it easier for Muslims to evict the mad bombers if we "prove" the mad bombers' hypothesis that we're at war with all of Islam. It's bad enough that the Left offers this "proof" every day; now the Right is doing it, too.

Tancredo should just appear on television with a size 10 sneaker in his mouth and get it over with.
