Another Day, Another Gaffe: Johnson Thinks NYC Mosque Could Be Stopped Through Zoning Laws

The latest from Ron Johnson:

"Those folks are trying to poke a stick in our eye," Johnson said. "I just hope the zoning officials and the city, the state revisit that, rezone that piece of property."

That's a great idea, Ron. I'm glad you have such a tight grasp on that law-making thingy, since you're trying to get a job as a U.S. Senator-- the highest lawmaker in the land.

And how exactly would that zoning ordinance look like, Ron? 

Even the nuttiest of right wing cuckoo birds aren't calling for bizarro special legislation to prevent the building of the Mosque.  Why?  Because everyone knows that such legislation would be obviously unconstitutional.

The mere suggestion is ridiculous.

This is yet another example of the unbelievable shallowness of Johnson's basic understanding of the constitution and how our country works.

In Charles Krauthammer's recent column he says:

No one disputes the right to build; the whole debate is about the propriety, the decency of doing so.

Don't be so quick to say "no one," Chuck.
