Drudge lists controversial mosque reps may be interested in talking up Gov. Paterson’s offer of state property (sticky issue there, too), but could break standoff between critics and Cordoba House intensity.

Insane – and Paterson did my friend Marquise Caroline Kennedy-Schlossberg wrong by not picking her right away. That let the awful, awful Clintons | Read More »
