True Patriots

The story of the Texas Democrats fleeing the state is hilarious. The story of the Republicans sending the Texas rangers into Oklahoma to get them is hilarious. The story of them wanting to get the Feds involved is hilarious. And, this comment by New Mexico AG Patricia Madrid is hilarious:

Her comments came after Gov. Rick Perry's office asked New Mexico whether it would allow Texas officials to make arrests in that state. Madrid said the question is being researched. But she wasn't taking it all serious.

"Some are speculating this request from the Texas Governor's office concerns an effort to locate missing Texas House Democrats," Madrid wrote. "If so, Texas should understand that since ski season is over, the Santa Fe Opera has not begun and President Bush was just in town, I don't think they are in Santa Fe now. Nevertheless, I have put out an all-points bulletin for law enforcement to be on the look out for politicians in favor of health care for the needy and against tax cuts for the wealthy."
