"The Daily Show" has some fun with Texas far-right idiots...

I was my butt off.

For anyone who didn't think Gov. Rick Perry was a big enough wingnut to suit the state of Texas, there's an even nuttier one waiting to take his place -- secessionist Larry Kilgore. The Daily Show's Jessica interviewed Kilgore and his sidekick, Lynn Troxel, and it was a surreal enough segment that it could have been something you'd find over at The Onion.

1. I loved that segment. The best part was Jessica asking Kilgore if Lincoln had

ever done anything for anyone's freedom...and the guy was just too damn dumb to get it.

3. I'm a Texan

When I and blogslut jr. watched that bit last night we laughed, we groaned, we face palmed. I recalled the many times that I've defended my state on this board.

Those fuckers in that segment are not helping Texas.

"Less of a shithole than Lubbock, but still a shithole!"

9. Juanita Jean is a gift to Democrats everywhere,

not just in Texas. For those who have never visited her site, it's a must-see. Thanks for introducing her to those who have never ventured there. I'm sure it was a reference at DU that sent me.

And this Daily Show segment is laugh out loud funny when you're not just sitting there awestruck at the whole idea of these people. Unbelievable.
