Update (4:40 p.m.): Robin Carnahan did answer questions about the mosque today. Update below the original post.

Original post (2 p.m.): In this era of reading and riding the tea leaves, it was only a matter

of time before heartland politicians were asked where they

stand on the “Ground Zero Mosque,” the Muslim community and worship

center planned for a private development a couple of blocks away from

where the Twin Towers crumbled.

Roy Blunt spoke up recently, and his answer will surprise you, if for some reason you always thought Roy Blunt was a Muslim cleric.
