The Koran book-burning furore was as baffling as it was infuriating. On the one hand, you had the increasingly out-of-touch Obama saying that the planned mosque two blocks from ground Zero was breaking no constitutional or legal boundary, which is indeed the case.
On the other, you had him condemning that looper from Florida from burning the Koran -- even though he was breaking no constitutional or legal framework.
