I'm worried about them. Really. See, after all the idiocy that attended Keith Ellison's swearing in as the first Muslim congressman, after all the foaming at the mouth, all the arm-waiving, all the apocalyptic proclamations, I'm afraid of what might happen when word leaks that Irael has approved a Muslim as a cabinet minister.
The Israeli government overwhelmingly approved the appointment of the country's first Muslim Cabinet minister Sunday, billing it as an important step for a long-suffering minority. ... Majadele told AP Television News that his goals as a Cabinet minister would be "promoting coexistence between the two peoples inside the state, and promoting dialogue between the Palestinians and the Israelis toward negotiations and political agreement."
Look at that. A Muslim cabinet minister, right in the heart of Israel, and he's calling for "coexistance." Doesn't Israel know that Muslim's can't be trusted, and the Koran calls for chopping off the heads of all the infidels? Don't they know that all Muslims are terrorists? Don't they know they need to adopt the Virgil Goode position to protect themselves from the bearded menace?
Has anybody seen Glenn Beck? Has anyone made sure Congressman Goode is up and squawking? Has anyone fallen under the vast shadow of Limbaugh since the word leaked out? I'm thinking that these guys need one of those medical alert buttons right now. If you live near one of them, you might want to check and make sure the yellow globs of bile are still oozing through their hate-powered systems.
On the other hand, perhaps you shouldn't get too close to any wingnut for a week or two. Exploding heads can be a hazard -- especially when those heads are bone all the way through.
