Sharron Angle, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Nevada, suggested recently to a group of tea partyers that the U.S. was being taken over by Muslims. Seriously.
She pointed to Dearborn, Mich., and wondered aloud how it could have happened that Sharia law was allowed to take over there. Never mind that, as Dearborn's mayor, Jack O'Reilly, later pointed out, no one was tapping into Islamic law to run the city. (Angle's defense? She said she read "somewhere" that Sharia law was in effect in Dearborn.)
