The Other Monkey in Tampa Bay
No, no, no. Not The Mitt, arriving soon for his hurricane-threatened and Akin-endangered Republican National Convention. No, this is a real monkey, a macaque, that’s taken up residence the last three years. The New York Times has the story, and the Macaque has his own Facebook page. It’s likely the last really good news we’ll have out of Tampa for a while.
Of course, not all the monkeys are in Tampa Bay. Some loonie judge in Lubbock County, Texas, wants a tax increase to hire more deputies to defend the county when President Obama surrenders U.S. sovereignty to the United Nations:
He’s going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the (United Nations), and what is going to happen when that happens? I’m thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we’re not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy.
Remember county judges in Texas are elected, not selected. Ask yourself, would you want to appear in front of a judge whose vision of the world – the space between his ears – has so little correspondence with reality?
