Rep.-elect Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, found himself under attack last month when he announced he'd take his oath of office on the Koran -- especially from Virginia Rep. Virgil Goode, who called it a threat to American values.Oh dear...
Yet the holy book at tomorrow's ceremony has an unassailably all-American provenance. We've learned that the new congressman -- in a savvy bit of political symbolism -- will hold the personal copy once owned by Thomas Jefferson.
[ cf But It's Thomas Jefferson's Koran! ]
As one of the commenters noted, it is a tragedy that it had to be Thomas Jefferson's since that gives the FruitBat Brigade their little piece of Pro-Patria Excuses.... Although, to be honest, it is not at all clear that the FruitBat Brigade would even know whom Thomas Jefferson was, once they learn that he owned a Koran, and as such must have been some sort of Gay ( Yada, Etc ) Pirate Canadianists, IN A BLUE DRESS!!!
And as such is clear and compelling proof that we MUST BOMB CANADA!!!
Anything Less And The Iranian Flying Saucers Will Return!!!!
