The 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’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.”
