A Message For That Special Brand of American Rightwing Political Idiocy -OR- The 44th President's Inaugurations: Some Biblical Truths

This deserves it's own entry ...

Here is President Barack Obama taking the oath of office as President of the United States, as administered by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, while his wife, Michelle Obama, holds the Inaugural Bible used by President Lincoln, January 20, 2009.

This picture comes from the Christian Science Monitor.

Here's a close-up of that Bible used by President Lincoln in 1861 when he was inaugurated.

This picture comes from the USA Today. Yes, that USA Today.

To be clear, I don't know why the URL has "Kennedy" in it -- that appears to be a mistake.

*******

WHERE AM I GOING WITH ALL THIS? Just here ...

To any human being who comes across this blog because of the search terms "(Barack) Obama holding the Koran (or Quran) (at Inauguration [or] oath of office)," here is my message for you:

You're a frickin' idiot and go away.

President Obama at the Second Inauguration -- the symbolic public one held on January 21, 2013 -- where he is holding both the same Lincoln Bible and Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "Traveling Bible."

To be clear, this President, born in the United States, took the oath the previous day -- as required by the Constitution -- but that happened to fall on a Sunday, January 20, 2013, in a small ceremony, where he held another Bible called the Robinson Family Bible, described in the same USA Today article as a Michelle Obama family heirloom.

Here is a picture of that with the President holding the Robinson Family Bible.

Got it? No Koran / Quran in sight. Now go back to your Newsmax.com fevered swamp of rightwing fantasies. Besides, shouldn't all your entropy be focused on Hillary now?? (I know it was a bad day on that front for you guys. All you've got is another House GOP Scopes Monkey show-trial hearing to fall back on.)

Just another day in the House GOP Caucus.
