Casus Belli?

Congressman Virgil Goode, having been criticized for his comments about the influx of Muslims into America as a threat to our traditional values, refuses to admit he said anything wrong - that his remarks about Muslims are being called racist because they are an uncomfortable truth.

On the other hand, Congressman Keith Ellison continues to demonstrate grace and class, stating that he holds no malice against Goode, and looks forward to working with him in 2007.

Goode says he does not have an issue with Ellison using the Koran to take his oath, but wants to restrict immigration so that we don't have a majority of Muslims elected to Congress. (If we follow this reasoning, it would seem that Goode fears a majority overturning laws and making America over under Islamic law. But that would take a 2/3 majority – enough to pass the law and override a presidential veto, or a president who is Muslim.)

Which must be why columnist Debbie Schussel questions Barack Obama's loyalties, a complex feat of logic based on Obama's middle name – Hussein – and the fact that Obama's estranged father was Muslim.

Schussel asks if this is the kind of man we want as president when we are, "... fighting the war of our lives against Islam."

An ideological war. A war against Islam.

Not a war on terror.
