I keep hearing about this, and I'm sick and tired of it. Who cares what apocryphal tome a guy uses when he's entering a hallowed hall of lies, money, and bullshit? The only way you would care is if you're -- that's right -- a total fucking dumbass. And besides, wouldn't it be more dishonest and weird for him to be sworn in with a book he doesn't even believe in? And how exactly does putting your hand on a book do anything anyway? Can't we all just pray or something and move on?

Last month, Virginia Republican Rep. Virgil Goode warned that unless immigration is tightened, "many more Muslims" will be elected and follow Ellison's lead.

Nice. You said it so hard, Virge.

Finally, a little note to Western media outlets: please pick a fucking spelling for the Koran/Quran and stick with it, would 'ya please? The same goes for Osama/Usama, al-Qaeda/al-Qaida, and whatever else. I don't care what romanization you go with, just stop switching things up because it's annoying. And figure out how to pronounce "Qatar" while you're at it.
