Keith Ellison is the first Muslim member of Congress, and already he has caused a stir.
Last month, Ellison compared Pres. Bush with Adolph Hitler, saying "Its almost like the Reichstag Fire, kind of reminds me of that....After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader [Hitler] of that country.." He later apologized for the statement.
It was also not a fair comparison. Bush was already the leader when he blamed Al Quida.
But enough quibbling.
Ellison has a chance to exoplain himself today (8/1) on CNN's Situation Room. Here is that interview.
Wimp. You wimped out.
