Media Reports Weak Justifications for the Ground Zero Mosque, Part XVII

Today’s player is Dan Harris of ABC’s Good Morning America:

HARRIS: But, many of the country’s most prominent politicians, including some potential Obama allies, are staying mum, from Bill and Hillary Clinton to both former Presidents Bush. Defenders [of the GZ mosque] point out that also close to Ground Zero are two strip clubs, an adult/lingerie store and an off-track betting parlor.

This would be a logical rebuttal to Ground Zero mosque critics, provided the Twin Towers had been taken down by nine poll dancers, seven pairs of edible underwear and three bookies.
