Banner Day in Stupid

I haven’t even finished my first cup of coffee, but CNN has given me an early Christmas present. First, ASWCFTS (another stupid white congressman from the South), Rep. Virgil Goode (How perfect is that name?!?!?) The Gentleman from Virginia has suggested in a letter to supporters that without immigration reform "we will have many more Muslims in the United States." This is in response to newly elected Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison’s request to be sworn in using the Quran instead of a Bible.

“If American citizens don't wake up and adopt the Virgil Goode position on immigration there will likely be many more Muslims elected to office and demanding the use of the Quran,” Said Congressman Goode (Not Evil).

The best part? Wait for it! Congressman Ellison is an African American, born right here in the good ol’ US and A. He’s the progeny of hard-working folks who, coincidentally, Congressman Goode’s WASP-y ancestors BROUGHT TO THIS COUNTRY BY FORCE to do the work the citizens felt was beneath them.

(By the way, Congressman “Goode,” the part of that episode that was offensive was the FORCED part. Current immigrants are filling the menial jobs VOLUNTARILY. I’d think this would be a Virginian’s wet dream. But you look like you haven’t had a wet anything since Eisenhower was President.)

The Congressman’s letter also said, "The Ten Commandments and 'In God We Trust' are on the wall in my office. As long as I have the honor of representing the citizens of the 5th District of Virginia in the United States House of Representatives, the Quran is not going to be on the wall of my office.'” Might I suggest a copy of the Constitution?
