    [I][B]When the new Congress rushes to pass important legislation filled
    with the American spirit let us know.[/B][/I]

    Minimum wage issue response from me.

    Like most democrats he (Murtha) voted one way and then realized he made a mistake. The trouble with the republicans is that they can't admit mistakes.

    35-0 the people let them know that they made a huge one.

    I like his voting record by the way. It is a lot better than the rubber stamp ones that got the republicans tossed.

    But It's Thomas Jefferson's Koran!

    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.

    Thomas Jefferson, probably the greatest Virginian in it's political history. That was an intelligent move on the part of Ellison.

    If he can have (own) a Quran, why is Goode pushing so hard against Ellison.

    It's all about hatred. Goode did not do any diligence and now he is caught out there. His hatred blinded him.
