Emphasis on "Northern". The rest of the state, not so hot, if only because guys like Virgil Goode are elected to represent the people. It turns out Goode is against the idea of Muslims being elected to Congress, as happened in the progressive state of Minnesota.

From C-Ville Weekly ( [Our congressman, Virgil Goode, stands by his anti-Islamic rhetoric: "...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 Koran.]

I tell you what, Goode: if I can live in a state that is partly represented by a bigoted jackass, I think you can handle being in a big room with a Muslim. If not, feel free to leave the room.

Addendum: Hold up. I feel compelled to comment on this statement from Rep. Goode:

["I fear that in the next century we will have many more Muslims in the United States..."]

The next century? Does he mean the 22nd century? Isn't that more than ninety years away? Here's a thought: How about focusing on stuff that most of us will be around to see? Or maybe catch up to the rest of us here in the 21st century? Jackass.

Proud to live in Northern Virginia


  1. It's so, so sad when fear and hatred are used as campaign tent poles. (sigh)

  2. I live in VA too and I'm so saddened to see how racist these guys are. I was a republican that voted Dem across the board this election partly because of this junk. I still can't believe people actually voted for Allen. It should have been a landslide, not a barely won seat... Ugh.

    Nice to meet you though. It's always nice to see a mobile geek that isn't in SF.

  3. To quote Ren from Ren & Stimpy

    "You Iiiidiooott!"

    That goes to the hot shot politican.

    I bet he calls himself a Christian too.....Tolerance? Not he, for his its the old stand by of narrow-mindedness.
    "anyone who doesn't believe my religion is a heathen and will go to hell"

    Lets see how far he makes it before he resigns.

  4. Cliff: what's worse is that it often works in holding up the tent.

    Robyn: welcome to the Tabletsphere, I mean, Tabletscape. As for George Allen, I knew the racism issue wouldn't hurt him much, but it did lead the Dems to a character issue that worked. Didn't think they'd be smart enough to do that, but they surprised me.

    Minda: Yes, Goode does call himself a Christian, which makes his comments worse IMO. It's one thing to be against all religions equally, but it's another to be unfair in one's narrow-minded bias.
