Texas Wants to Fight a Civil War

Gov. Rick Perry, participating in one of these tea-bagging events today, said, apparently, Texas can secede from the union. Thanks to Texas Liberal for the quote:
“Texas is a unique place. When we came into the union in 1845, one of the issues was that we would be able to leave if we decided to do that,” Perry said. “My hope is that America and Washington in particular pays attention. 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, who knows what may come of that.”
Oh? Can it? Can it now? First Alaska, now Texas. Let me just make this clear: four months of unchecked political power in a party that you don't like is enough to secede...

...but eight years of ghastly human rights violations and unchecked fiscal or financial policy and we're just a bunch of crazy liberals?
