He Came Across the Ocean, Or Maybe Just Lake Michigan

I didn't think it was possible for someone to say something dumber than Dennis Prager's "Ellison shouldn't be allowed to swear on the Koran" argument, but a Congressman from North Carolina Virginia has topped him. Virgil Goode, a Republican, wrote a letter to constituents warning them that if they don't back his plan for tougher immigration restrictions, "there will likely be many more Muslims elected to office and demanding the use of the Koran."

Ellison's election, of course, has a whole lot to do with immigration. He migrated to Minnesota from... Michigan.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations has demanded an apology. You've gotta be pretty dim to come out on the wrong side of an issue from CAIR, but Goode has managed it.

Small point Steve... but he is actually a Virginia congressman. He was mine when I lived in Charlottesville.
