Congratulations are in order for Erick Erickson of RedState and CNN. He has run away with today’s Dumbass Award despite many deserving contestants. Here is a series of Tweets from Erickson that lowered him to the depths of depravity:
How exactly do our founding principles require the President to support a mosque at ground zero?
People citing freedom of religion as the reason Obama says our founding principles *demand* he support the mosque are not that bright.
Paging the Church of Satan: Our founding principles demand Barack Obama support your rights to human sacrifice. Carry on.
Paging random religious sects that still practice polygamy: our founding principles demand Barack Obama support group marriage.
Paging Islamofascists: Our founding principles demand Barack Obama support Jihad.
First of all, Dumbass, The mosque is NOT at ground zero. It is three blocks away. Secondly, our founding principles include the free exercise of religion. You may not think that supporting the First Amendment is bright, but that’s just your dumbassedness clouding what remains of your reason.
Finally, your comparison of constructing a legal building to human sacrifice, polygamy, and terrorism, all of which are against the law, demonstrates how worthy you are of this award.
