CAIR Launches "I Am Muslim, I am American" Campaign in Times Square

Just in time for Christmas, The Council on Islamic American Relations (CAIR) has launched an "I am Muslim, I am American" ad campaign. The slideshow-like presentation, with portraits of Muslim Americans doing American-American things like holding a baseball bat and being a cop, started airing yesterday on the CBS Super Screen in Times Square. CAIR describes it as "part of our ongoing effort to ensure that a fair and accurate portrayal of Islam and Muslims is presented to the American public." Some people aren't going for it: "'I AM MUSLIM, I AM AMERICAN' NOTICE WHICH COMES FIRST," cries Atlas Shrugs, and brings up Fort Hood. Sigh. CAIR should start running these on TV, during episodes of 24.
