Why I am a liberal, reason #245: duly elected congressperson Keith Ellison made a fatal mistake, according to Rep. Virgil Goode (VA). He is muslim. And now "they" are going to overrun Congress. Rep. Ellison's other mistake: he wants to swear in on the Koran rather the the bible. The right would not have it.
So someone from Goode's district donated a Koran for the ceremony: one owned by none other then Thomas Jefferson. Of course, the right wing had a spin on that one: Jefferson was a terrorist sympathizer. Jeebus on a freakin' pogo stick.
