Jefferson's Qu'ran

We've reported in the past about the ranting, foaming-at-the-mouth claims of Theopublican Congressmoran Virgil Goode. Goode was upset because a newly elected Democrat, who is Muslim, was planning to use the Qu'ran as part of the private swearing-in ceremony he would have. In the public swearing-in ceremony no book of any kind is used and the private swearing-in is not official. Goode wanted a law forcing everyone to swear in on the Bible -- as if that will improve the lot of idiots in Washington any.

Well the newly elected Muslim member of Congress didn't intend to use the Goode book but he did want to use a special book for his ceremony. The Library of Congress will supply him with a Qu'ran that once belonged to President Thomas Jefferson. A spokesman for the Congressman says he "is paying respect not only to the founding fathers' belief in relgious freedom but the Constitution itself."

Congressmoran Goode had no comments. Too bad he didn't have no comments a few weeks when he stuck his oversized foot in his overly large mouth.
