Today’s lesson in religious tolerance comes to us from Florida, where we are talking about Islam, so, just a heads up, today’s lesson is going to be awful.

The request was to close Broward County schools for two Muslim holidays, the end of Ramadan and the end of Hajj, for the same reason that the schools close for Christian and Jewish holidays: Thousands of students aren’t in school on those days, to observe them. That does not sound so crazy, right? Especially considering there are 18,000 Muslim students — 7 percent of the student population— that it could affect?

No! You are wrong! Turns out, we need the 82d Airborne to drop into South Florida RIGHT NOW, because it has been overrun by the Taliban.

Tell us what the terrorists were asking for, HuffPo:

“We’re not asking them to close the whole district down, but at least give the kids off,” CAIR Executive Director Nezar Hamze told The Huffington Post, noting he has received hundreds of complaints from Muslim parents whose children miss a day of school to observe the holidays…

The school district cites high absenteeism, not religious observances, as the reason it closes on Christian and Jewish holidays.

Got it. So, even if it doesn’t end up being something the school district decides to do, it’s not a crazy thing to ask about, right?

“Muslim people are beautiful people, but their religion, which is Islam, is not good. It’s very violent and evil,” argued the Rev. O’Neal Dozier of the Worldwide Christian Center in Pompano Beach.

Ah. Well, that is slightly less accepting than would seem reasonable. At least everyone else was being cool, right?

Outside the meeting, protestors carried signs reading “Protect Our Children No Holiday For Perverted Cult” and “Teach Math Not Sharia.”

Florida! Color us shocked! The state that didn’t finish counting Tuesday’s presidential votes until Sunday is not really doing that well culturally?

Also, for those of you wondering about the charming pastor who said Muslims suck: He’s the same guy who said gay people were so disgusting they “make God want to vomit,” a repulsive statement for which Rick Santorum made him honorary chairman of his Florida campaign.

So we’ve got the bigoted minister,“sharia,” and “evil.” All that we seem to be missing here is “jihad” and “terrorism.” Anyone?

“The group promoting and asking for this is associated with terrorism,” charged Joe Kaufman, chairman of Coral Springs-based Americans Against Hate.

There it is!

Another opponent accused the Florida chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations of “cultural jihad.”

Hooray! We’ve hit all the bases! For the children.

(Hamze has “caused problems” with his crazy “requests for tolerance” before — when he confronted Rep. Allen West (R-Gun) about his treatment of Muslims, West responded with “You attacked us.”)

Republicans still pretty baffled by that whole gender gap thing

As Republicans try to pick themselves up and carry on after their humiliating defeat on Election Day, they can't grasp at enough straws to try to figure out just what went wrong.
And if this kind of wisdom, from former George w. Bush adviser Karen Hughes, is indicative of the party's deep denial of reality, don't expect them to figure it out any time soon:

And if another Republican man says anything about rape other than it is a horrific, violent crime, I want to personally cut out his tongue. The college-age daughters of many of my friends voted for Obama because they were completely turned off by Neanderthal comments like the suggestion of “legitimate rape.”
Nice try, but FAIL. It would be nice and easy for Republicans to blame that 18-point gender gap on Todd "magic lady parts" Akin and Richard "rape is a gift from God" Mourdock, but the reality is that the gender gap existed long before either of them said a word. The gender gap persisted throughout the election, closing only briefly after President Barack Obama's less than stellar performance at the first presidential debate. But women were turned off by the Republican Party long before "Hey, ladies, quit complaining about rape, it's not that bad" became the Republicans' closing argument to voters.
Mitt Romney launched his "three-pronged strategy" in April to woo the women; that didn't work. House Republicans announced exciting research into just how lady voters work.(That clearly remained a mystery to them.) Women in swing states were especially turned off by Romney's attacks on women's health care and his vow to "get rid of" Planned Parenthood. And putting uber-extremist Paul Ryan, who cosponsored and voted for the very worst anti-woman bills in Congress, on the ticket didn't exactly help. And then of course there was Ann Romney and her repeated insistence that women don't care about any of that stuff and need to "wake up" and realize just how awesome Mitt is.(That, shockingly, didn't work either.)

And all of this, all of it, happened before Akin became a household name.

But it's cool, Republicans. You keep telling yourself that opposing equal pay doesn't matter. That vowing to defund women's health care doesn't matter. That opposing protection for victims of domestic violence doesn't matter. That 54 anti-choice bills in the past two years don't matter. Keep believing that all those women totally would have voted for Romney if it weren't for a few dumb Republican men who said some egregious things about rape. And be sure to keep pushing your War on Women and your anti-woman agenda. Maybe it'll work for you next time.

Republicans still having a sad about America's decline into socialism and decay because Obama

Poor, poor Republicans. They were so certain of their unskewed, non-gay math, and they're still reeling from the devastation of the completely predicted but nonetheless shocking to them defeat on Election Day. Like poor Beth Cox, a hardcore Romney campaign volunteer who was dumb enough to write "Victory Day!!" on her calendar:

She had devoted her life to causes she believed were at the heart of her faith and at the core of her Republican Party. She counseled young married families at church, spoke about right to life in area schools and became a stay-at-home mom with two daughters.
Now, in a single election night, parts of her country had legalized marijuana, approved gay marriage and resoundingly reelected a president who she worried would “accelerate our decline.”
Bless her little twisted Republican heart—she really believed Mitt Romney was going to save her from the eeeeeeeevil President Barack Obama. After all, her favorite sources of propaganda-as-news had told her he would. That's how she knew Romney's victory was all but certain; after all, she'd unskewed the numbers herself:

She turned on her computer and pulled up an electoral map that she had filled out a few days before the election. She had predicted the outcome twice — once coming up with a narrow Romney win and once more with a blowout.
Florida: red.

Colorado: red.

Virginia, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin: all red.[...]

Romney’s thorough defeat had come more as a shock than as a disappointment, and now Cox stared at the actual results on her computer and tried to imagine what the majority of her country believed.

“Virginia went blue? Really?” she said.“Southern-values Virginia?”

“And Colorado? Who the heck is living in Colorado? Do they want drugs, dependency, indulgence? Don’t they remember what this country is about?”
Cox, who is "not naïve" and "not ignorant," according to Cox, has some deep insights as to why her map didn't exactly pan out, and hopes that the party will stop being so white, stop saying crazy things about rape, and will "never again run a presidential ticket without including a woman or a minority." And since the party is pretty much all white and all male, that will totally happen. Especially if Cox is willing to set aside her "volunteering, her scrapbooking" and her "Godly life" to run for state office, as her fellow Tennessee Republicans have encouraged her to do because her kind of stupid is exactly what the party is looking for, apparently.(Come on, Beth, of course scrapbooking is really important to the fate of the nation, but your country and your party need you right now!)
And that seems like the right direction for the Republican Party to take. After the "shell-shocking" shellacking the party took on Election Day, and the so-called soul-searching it must now force upon itself to figure out why the GOP vision of America was rejected, finding more candidates like Cox—who think math has a liberal bias, Fox "News" is the best source of information, and someone had better step up and do something to save America from the gays and pot-smokers before it's too late—is definitely the best way for the party to change course and start winning back all those Americans it lost this time around.

Yeah, Republicans. Go with that.

How would Old Glory look with 30 stars instead of 50? As far-fetched as it may sound, the White House might soon be forced by its own rules to examine the question.
On Nov.7, the day after President Barack Obama was re-elected, the White House’s website received a petition asking the administration to allow Louisiana to secede.
If 25,000 people sign the petition by Dec. 7, it will “require a response” from the Obama administration, according to published rules of the White House’s online “We the People” program.(RELATED: Website petition to Obama: Please create “Do Not Kill” list)

Allen West gets Florida County to do early recount, still losing

Patrick Murphy has been unofficially declared the winner in his hotly contested race against Rep. Allen West. How hotly contested? Despite the fact that the win was outside the margin that triggers an automatic recount, West is still fighting. He got St. Lucie county to do a partial recount of early ballots, despite the fact that the hearing he demanded, attempting to impound voting machines and ballots in the county, won't be heard until tomorrow.

Election officials said they were taking the step "out of an abundance of caution."
The official notice of the recount stated all early votes would be included, but officials then decided to feed only three days of ballots into scanners.

West's campaign objected to the dates being recounted, the absence of a full recount of early votes and the county's refusal to turn over some other documentation requested.[...]

"What's going on today is a sham. It does nothing to address all the concerns we have," West campaign manager Tim Edson said. "We'll take every legal action necessary."
That partial recount still gives Murphy the win, still outside recount margins. But West's threat is clear: "We'll take every legal action necessary."
He's going to drag this out as long as the courts will allow.

Please chip in $3 to help Patrick Murphy fight this legal battle.

First, the 21 districts in Ohio which voted 100% for Obama were in Cuyahoga County, Cleveland, and those same districts have historically voted for the Democratic candidate. Also, many of these Cleveland districts are nearly 100% black persons. Now, do you seriously think that Romney swayed these districts away from the Democratic party as well as a black candidate that you can legitimately claim voter fraud?
As for the claim that Wood County had 108% number for voters...the reference is from the amount of eligible voters (98,213) taken from a 2010 census opposed to the amount of registered voters 108,014 of which 62,069 voted). Wood County is home to Bowling Green University (17,000+ students). Do you think it may be a possibility that in the two years since the 2010 census, that the number of eligible voters may have increased due to the number of students who have changed their residency status to Wood County for the sake of voting? Also, Obama won with 52.61% of the vote in 2008 in Wood County.(2008 Presidential Election: 101,891 registered voters, 65,164 voted).
She is not comprehending any of the above, Johannes. Know why? Ignorance and hate. Were this the "holy" (Ha!) inquisition, she would Obama and have all pro-Obama voters burned at the stake.

'Mr. Boehner has got to understand they lost'

Bernie Sanders rebuts the ludicrous argument that Americans gave Republicans a mandate to extend the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy:

Well, I think the objective facts disagree with that assertion. The Democrats gained two seats in the Senate, did better than anyone dreamed. The Democrats gained more votes in the House, gained a few seats in the House. President Obama won a resounding electoral college victory and won the popular vote, I think by two and a half million votes.[Note: It's actually 3.3 million as of now.]
To suggest the Republicans did well in this election makes no sense at all.

President Obama was very clear. He spoke about this all of the time: if reelected, he is not going to extend tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires. He was reelected. Many of us ran on a similar program. We were reelected.

So I think Mr. Boehner has got to understand they lost, and let the wishes of the majority of the people in this country prevail.
