Wow, I missed this when it happened. Virgil Goode--Congressman from Virginia--opposes the use of the Quran for swearing in the first Muslim elected to Congress, Keith Ellison.
Short blurb from CNN.com
A Virginia congressman will not apologize for writing that without immigration overhaul "there will be many more Muslims elected to office demanding the use of the Quran," his spokesman said.
Republican Rep. Virgil Goode's letter to constituents also warns that without immigration overhaul "we will have many more Muslims in the United States."
And aside from the general and obvious douchebaggery of his entire approach to this issue, he also didn't bother to find out that Keith Ellison was born in the U.S. and converted to Islam in college. That, my friends, is quite enough to earn him my douchebag o'the day award, even if it is belated.
