Somewhere Thomas Jefferson Is Smiling

Thomas Jefferson, one of our founding fathers was a big proponent for freedom of religion and separation of church and state. And to all of those right wingers who want to re-write history, Thomas Jefferson owned a copy of the Quran.

That very same copy of the Quran will re-surface tomorrow during the swearing in of the 110th Congress. Representative Keith Ellison has borrowed Jefferson's Quran to place his hand upon while being sworn in. Suck on that Rep. Virgil Goode (R-Redneck)!

A personal note to Rep. Ellison: if you decide to convert before tomorrow, I have a copy of this book to loan you. Just let me know.
