Are Muslims the new Irish?

Penguins Employee of the monthThe wonderfully named Virgil Goode — a GOP state rep. in Virginia — has declined to retract a letter in which he warns that unless immigration is tightened, “many more Muslims will be elected” and use the Quran to take the oath of office.

They said the same thing about those damn Papists. And they were right. Democracy’s a bitch, aint it Virgil?

Goode also told Fox News he wants to limit legal immigration and do away with “diversity visas,” which he said let in people “not from European countries” and “some terrorist states.”

Goode’s concerns stem from the election of Keith Ellison to the US Congress from Minnessota. Ellison, the first Muslim ever elected to that august group of unidicted co-conspirators, has said he will use the Quran when he is sworn in.

“I will not be putting my hand on the Quran,” Goode said at a news conference yesterday.

I’m sure I speak for many Muslims when I say, “Thank God.”

“It is even harder for the average ape to believe that he has descended from man.” — Mencken.
