Myrick brings the anti-Muslim witch hunt to Fox News (where else?)

If you've been watching cable news lately -- you poor soul -- you may be aware that four Republican lawmakers are promoting a new right-wing-media-inspired witch hunt.

No, we're not talking about ACORN-bashing or "czar" paranoia here. Them's old news, partner. But did ... did ...did you know that Muslim spies are infiltrating Congress?!

So says loon fringer David Gaubatz, co-author of Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America, published by World Net Daily Books. (World Net Daily, for those of you lucky enough not to know, is a "conservative " Web site that has been pushing the "birther" meme about Obama.)

And so says Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC), one of the aforementioned lawmakers, and ...hmmm... author of the foreword to Gaubatz's book. Here she is on Fox News this week, explaining her position on all those dangerous Muslim interns in Congress.

Thursday night on MSNBC's The Rachel Maddow Show, which, by the way, was pure fire from start to finish, Maddow broke the whole thing down for the sane among our populace.

Politico has more on the "controversy" here.
