In an earlier post, Howling Latina linked an article in the Roanoke Times about Common Cause asking Congress to investigate Republican Rep. Virgil Goode and attributed the date to Dec. 24.

Well, contrary to the date listed at the heading, it seems the article is an old news story going back to June 20, 2006; an alert reader pointed it out.

It's hard to fathom why a newspaper would use a current date at the top of a headline of an old news article; but that's exactly what happened; live and learn.

Be that as it may, the latest brouhaha presents an excellent opportunity for House Dems to investigate the Goode matter as opposed to Republicans who just allowed every shape and form of shenanigans to go on without batting an eye or even an eye lash, from Duke Cunningham to Virgil Goode.

Meanwhile, the Detroit Free Press reported yesterday that Muslims overwhelmingly voted for Sen.-elect Jim Webb in Virginia on Nov. 7. According to Imam Mahdy Bray, a Muslim activist, "50,000 Muslims went to the polls -- 47,000 of them vot[ed] for Webb."

Keep pissing off folks, dear Republicans: Blacks, Latinos, Jews, Indian Americans, American-Indians; just keep those hits-a-coming!

hey howlin'

its no problem, I was excited too, ol' virgil definitely has some karma in store. I'm sure we'll be blogging about his escapades before long.

Thanks for coming to visit!
Didn't Muslims overwhelmingly vote for W in 2000, including the professor in FL who was fired for being a terrorist?
In 2004, Muslims overwhelmingly favored Kerry; of course, that was after the US decided it would be a good idea to invade a sovereign Muslim nation. And in 2000, they weren't too happy with Rick Lazio when he was running for senator in New York and characterized all Muslims are terrorists.

But...I do think you're right about their previous support of Bush; that is pre-Iraqi War/invasion. They learned the hard way to never, ever, ever trust GOP batwings.
