Washington Post Asks The Important Question: In a Way, Isn't Romney Sort of Responsible for a Massacre By Mormons 160 Years Ago?

[Open Blogger is Ace, today. Having problems with my login, due to my own stupidity.]

The Washington Post wants to know if voters will hold it against Romney that Mormons massacred Arkansans in something they've decided to start calling "America's first 9/11."

That's funny. Because I have a question for the Washington Post to explore. Given that Obama's application for school in Indonesia stated his religion as "Islam," do they care to explore whether voters will hold it against Obama that his one-time coreligionists were responsible for what I guess we're now calling "America's Second 9/11," which is actually its first one? You know, the real 9/11?

Why would this be unimportant to explore?

Hell, why stop at America's Second-slash-Actual 9/11?

Have people gotten over the Barbary Pirates yet? Thomas Jefferson was pretty angry about their kidnapping/enslaving.

I'm going to start calling that "America's Real First 9/11 Even Though It's Not 9/11."

Next up from The Washington Post:
