Meanwhile, in other stories of intolerance

Wade Michael Page has now had bestowed upon him the traditional all three-names moniker for mass murdering  infamy, while our press ponders what motive a racist skin-head with a 9-11 complex could have for shooting at people that don’t look like him?

Yeah, go figure.

While all this was going on, other instances of ‘Murican tolerance have kept on keeping on.

The Interfaith Coalition on Mosques (ICOM) today called for a comprehensive investigation of the suspicious fire that destroyed a mosque in Joplin, Missouri in the early morning hours of August 6 during the holy month of Ramadan.  The Islamic Society of Joplin mosque was previously a target of arson, and the most recent attack took place just one day after an alleged white supremacist gunman killed six Sikhs and wounded three others, including a police officer, near Milwaukee.

I’m sure this is somehow the fault of atheists, or fifteen year old girls not being patriotic enough for the likes of sociopaths.

Cue Lee Greenwood.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
