Eeek! Eeek! Eeek! At the victory party for Keith Ellison, who's the first Muslim ever elected to Congress, supporters shouted "Allahu akbar" ("God is great")! Eeek! Eeek! Eeek!

Yeah -- this is really scary, because we know the Christian God has never been mentioned at an Election Night party in America.

(Click on the first link above to see the video -- yeah, it's Little Green Footballs, but you get to see what led up to "Allahu akbar," which was Ellison giving a graceful victory speech and saying, "God is good, y'all!")


And, via Memeorandum:

Omigod! Omigod! Omigod! Omigod! Members of the congressional Democrats' Progressive Coalition are going to meet with George McGovern next week to discuss Iraq!

Yes, it's shocking -- the anti-war progressives (who are only about a quarter of the Democratic delegation) are meeting with an anti-war guy!

Let's see -- that's one Nixon-era guy hanging out on our side ... and about 8,000 from the other side working within the Bush administration.

(Whoops -- 7,999.)

And, of course, McGovern -- unlike many of the star-spangled shriekers who are upset about this meeting -- actually fought in a war.
