During today’s House debate on Iraq, virulently anti-Muslim Rep. Virgil Goode (R-VA) said supporting the anti-escalation resolution would "aid and assist the Islamic jihadists who want the crescent and star to wave over the Capitol of the United States and over the White House of this country." Moreover, he said, "I fear that radical Muslims who want to control the Middle East and ultimately the world would love to see ‘In God We Trust’ stricken from our money and replaced with ‘In Muhammad We Trust.’"
I was reading a local blogger who was criticizing several Democratic Representatives by name for not doing enough to end the War in Iraq. He must have missed Goode's remarks. If Democrats are called corrupt and hypocritical for not pushing more strongly for an immediate end of war what words would describe Republicans like Goode who are calling everyone who opposes McCain's escalation traitors?
