Mrs. Ellison Sure Didn't Raise No Dummy

Ellison: 1,000,000: Goode: 0

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.

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.

Despite the pleasure we derive from watching Mr. Ellison trounce Mr. Goode in the little game of political spectacle Mr. Goode so foolishly initiated, we have come to the conclusion that any more would be unseemly, indecent and inhumane. Accordingly, we beg, we implore, we beseech Mr. Goode to drink a deep draught of shut the fuck up!

Why does Thomas Jefferson hate America?

Of all our presidents, Jefferson is the one I would most like to have known. Brilliant, brilliant man.
