Intolerable intolerance

Providing further evidence that Republicans have no minimum intelligence requirements, previously unknown and soon to be forgotten congressman Virgil H. Goode Jr. (R-Dark Ages) appeals to the lowest common denominator.

In a letter to the knuckle-draggers among his Virginia constituents Mr. No Goode warns of the terrors inherent in letting a muslim congressman swear his oath of office on the holy book of his choosing, which, unsurprisingly, in his case happens to be the Koran:

In his letter, which was dated Dec. 5, Mr. Goode said that Americans needed to “wake up” or else there would “likely be many more Muslims elected to office and demanding the use of the Koran.”

“I fear that in the next century we will have many more Muslims in the United States if we do not adopt the strict immigration policies that I believe are necessary to preserve the values and beliefs traditional to the United States of America and to prevent our resources from being swamped,” said Mr. Goode, who vowed to use the Bible when taking his own oath of office.

It never ceases to amaze me how the party which claims to be interested in protecting the "traditional values" of the constitution seems to breed members which rail against even the plainest interpretation of that document.

And while Democrats and rational people around the country are loudly complaining, the silence from the brahmins of the GOP is deafening.

Then again, I suppose I should be accustomed to massive hypocrisy from the Degenerate Old Party.
