Today in "Shit Local Elected Officials Say"

A County Judge (which I believe is a bit like being a County Councilman in other states) in Lubbock Texas is warning of the need to prepare for civil war in the event of Barack Obama's re-election.

The best part of this story is that the impending struggle is being used as justification for ...

... wait for it ...

a tax increase.

You seriously cannot make this s*** up. I'm hoping Neil has a philosophical point he can make about what might cause human beings to maintain a level of cognitive dissonance so high.
