780. Equine Paradox Friday honors Dennis Prager

Equine Paradox
There are more horse's asses in the world than horses.

From The Carpetbagger Report:

Far too many conservatives have made it abundantly clear that they’re unhappy about a Muslim getting elected to Congress. Right-wing activists opposed Rep.-elect Keith Ellison’s (D-Minn.) campaign while he was running, and after having won, most of these same activists are openly questioning whether his faith makes him unfit for office.

These concerns reached new heights (or, I should say, depths) yesterday, when right-wing talk-show host Dennis Prager penned a column on Ellison’s outrageous request to take the oath of office on the Koran, an act Prager insists “undermines American civilization.”
Insofar as a member of Congress taking an oath to serve America and uphold its values is concerned, America is interested in only one book, the Bible. If you are incapable of taking an oath on that book, don’t serve in Congress. In your personal life, we will fight for your right to prefer any other book. We will even fight for your right to publish cartoons mocking our Bible. But, Mr. Ellison, America, not you, decides on what book its public servants take their oath.

Devotees of multiculturalism and political correctness who do not see how damaging to the fabric of American civilization it is to allow Ellison to choose his own book need only imagine a racist elected to Congress. Would they allow him to choose Hitler’s “Mein Kampf,” the Nazis’ bible, for his oath? And if not, why not? On what grounds will those defending Ellison’s right to choose his favorite book deny that same right to a racist who is elected to public office?

Note: If you think that Prager is just whistling into the wind, check out a sampling of the hundreds of comments that he got to his column that are in gleefully perfect agreement with his racist, dishonest, un-American and unquestionably un-Constitutional rant.
