What would a Republican from Virginia say?

Think of the most stereotypical comments you can imagine a Virginia Republican congressman uttering on the topic of "Muslims, the Quran, and Immigration".

But no real person would actually say those things. Only a total caricature.

Then read what he actually said.

An excerpt:

I fear that in the next century we will have many more Muslims in the United States if we do not adopt the strict immigration policies that I believe are necessary to preserve the values and beliefs traditional to the United States of America and to prevent our resources from being swamped.
You know, traditional. Like, Christian. Which is his job as a government official: To keep America Christian. Like it says in the Pledge of Allegiance: "...One nation, under Jesus..."

If this dude gets re-elected, then we can continue to think what we'd like to about the general tolerance and diversity perspective of the folks in Virginia, or at least in his district.
