From the Milwaukee paper:

Scott Walker: There's a 'handful of reasonable, moderate followers of Islam'

When speaking about radical Islamic terrorism at a campaign stop Friday, Gov. Scott Walker noted that there are a "handful of reasonable and moderate followers of Islam."

His comments at a VFW Post in Derry, New Hampshire, triggered a quick response from a Muslim advocacy organization, which called on him to apologize.

2. I think you're absolutely correct.

Trump moves the bar to an extreme, and the other candidates can't wait to try and move it further. Ugly indeed.
