Good solutions and bad solutions to our little mosque problem

Fantastic, here is the worst of all solutions to a non-impasse:

New York Gov. David Paterson (D) is offering state help to the developers of the proposed “Ground Zero Mosque” if they agree to move it further from the Trade Center complex.

Thank you, oh proponents of limited government. You have compelled the state to assist in the building of a mosque just so you can keep sacred a place that you will go to maybe once or twice in your lives.

OH BUT WAIT.

While Paterson proposes a solution that will please absolutely nobody, Greg Gutfield gives us a winner suggestion that interests Andrew Sullivan of the Atlantic and Stephanie Gutmann of the National Review.

He wants to open a gay bar next to the Cordoba House. Which is to say, he gets it. Concerned that our tolerance only goes one way, he’s demanding it go both ways — while Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich demand we stop being tolerant.
