Good Muslim, Bad Muslim? Gov. Paterson Inserts Foot — Again.

New York Gov. David Paterson has sought to be a peacemaker in the viral dispute over building an Islamic center near ground zero, suggesting the mosque be moved a few blocks farther away and even offering state land for a new site.
But the hapless Paterson can never seem to escape his penchant for self-inflicted wounds — a habit on display in this week’s report that he may be investigated for perjury in connection with a probe over World Series tickets, and a habit that was reinforced with news of his unfortunate efforts to characterize different types of Muslims.
