Because Walmart's new New York City push wasn't nearly contentious enough, right-wing rabblerouser Pamela Geller is trying to link it to the, uh, Ground Zero Mosque. In a poster that makes less and less sense the more you look at it, Geller is advocating for people to "say yes to Walmart, no to the mega mosque" during a protest outside tomorrow's City Council hearing. Folks, it looks like this is going to get ugly, and we're not just talking in terms of poster design. [Gawker; Previously]
