Again, a brilliant display of Conservative hypocrisy (with an infusion of treason)

Here's another example of that basic "Good for me, not for thee" rule that Conservatives seem to latch onto like babies to their bottles. Republicans are constantly hammering Democrats on insinuations of "treason" to the country, calling their criticism of Bush and co. "unpatriotic" and such ridiculous crap. Because everyone knows no Republicans ever did anything stupid or borderline treasonous. Sure.

Well now, Rick Perry, the Governor of Texas, is openly entertaining thoughts and wishes of leaving the United States and forming Texas into its own country, something not seen since Texas first joined the US in 1845 following a decade-long stint as a separate country from America.

There's a lot of different scenarios. We've got a great union. There's absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, you know, who knows what might come out of that. But Texas is a very unique place, and we're a pretty independent lot to boot.

So when Democrats criticize Bush for his abhorrent stupidity, ignorance and overall incompetence as the "Leader of the Free World", they're committing treason in Conservatives' eyes, but when the Governor of a freakin' State publicly says he would like to split from America ... silence? Quite telling.

One thing that will probably send you into fits of laughter, however: guess who's offered to become the President of this hypothetical Texas nation?

I may run for president of Texas. That need may be a reality sooner than we think. If not me, someone someday may again be running for president of the Lone Star state, if the state of the union continues to turn into the enemy of the state.

You know, maybe it would be worth it to have Texas split with the rest of America, just to see this hilarious spectacle occur.
