peter-king-mosques.jpg Steve posted this last week, but I think we need to see him say this so he can't get away with the "I was misquoted" routine. Rep. Peter King often makes idiotic remarks, (Baghdad is just like Manhattan) but Rudy can't be happy about this one.

King: "Unfortunately we have too many mosques in this country, there's too many people who are sympathetic to radical Islam. We should be looking at them more carefully, we should be finding out how we can infiltrate, we should be much more aggressive in law enforcement."

As Digby notes:

And btw, is Rudy Giuliani the craziest nutball they've ever tried to foist on us, or what? How can anyone think this man is an appropriate choice to be president?

Giuliani's craziness has been exposed more and more lately and I wonder if the media will ask Rudy about King.

Can you help us out?
