How to create consensus

1. Pretend to represent a group in defining the issue.

“Peace-seeking Muslims, pls understand, Ground Zero mosque is UNNECESSARY provocation; it stabs hearts,” Palin wrote in a Twitter post Sunday. “Pls reject it in interest of healing.”

2. Try to find a group to represent.

The former Republican vice presidential nominee also posted a plea asking “peaceful New Yorkers” to “pls refute the Ground Zero mosque plan if you believe catastrophic pain caused @ Twin Towers site is too raw, too real.”

Looks like the issue is Sarah’s, not New York’s.
