Ellison Swears in on Koran

Or Qu'ran or however you want to spell it. Keith Ellison, the new Minnesota Democratic member of the House of Representatives, the first Muslim elected to Congress, who weathered a storm of outrage from Faux News, the right wing in general, and one Representative Virgil Goode in particular, swore in today using a Koran once owned by ... [drumroll] ... Thomas Jefferson!

Virgil Goode, by the way, just happens to represent the Virginia district that ecompasses Jefferson's home, Monticello.

Oh, the irony!
