No doubt the loons will still declare it shocking when it doesn't happen.
While I too am looking forward to Tulsi Gabbard's (HI - D) becoming the first Hindu in Congress, I have to pick the Huffington Post up on this article. members of Congress do not swear their oath on a book, be it Bible., Qu'ran, Torah or Bhagavad Gita. They simply raise their right hands and swear. See here.
All those pictures of Keith Ellison with his hand on a Qu'ran? From the post-oath photo-opps. There will no doubt be plenty of those for Congresswoman Gabbard. Though I wonder how long it will be before we start to get jokes about how Hindus know all about congress, illustrated by pictures of the friezes at Khajuraho?
Oh wait, I just did that...
I doubt they'll use this one, though, which I bought on a postcard at the temple shop and sent to one of my (male) work colleagues whose sense of humour is rather like my own, with "I saw this and I thought of you" written on the back. I like best the oh-for-fucks's-sake (so to speak) expression of the woman in the background.
