Interesting Twist

As you may have heard, Keith Ellison--the first muslim ever elected to congress--will be sworn in this month. the normal swearing in ceremony does not involved a hand on the bible or any other book (as you may have heard or guessed). In a private, separate ceremony, he will be sworn in with his hand on the Koran. this has caused fellow representative Virgil Goode of Virginia (Republican if you had to ask) to lose his mind over the issue. He's taken it as a personal affront to the fabric and foundation of the nation itself in several rambling comments, letters, and articles.

Well, in an interesting twist, the swearing on the Koran ceremony will have a Virginia connection. the book used will actually be the one owned by Thomas Jefferson. No word yet from Goode if Thomas Jefferson's owning of the Koran is also an attack upon...himself!?

I like loud idiots. they're easier to pick out.

Goode hates Mary Cheney's womb too.
