So instead of seceding, states are multiplying? The Republic of Texas is VERY DISAPPOINTED in you.

SayItWithWookies September 4, 2009 at 11:33 am

That’s right next to “Billions of Americans Lack Basic Knowledge.”

Government is finally drowning in a bathtub! Just like New Orleans! Yay!

I admit, it took me a moment to notice the mistake. I’m part of the problem, aren’t I?

Seems to be the “trendy” thing to do.

Surely these state employees will appreciate all the tax credits Obama put in the stimulus to appease republicans who were never gonna vote for it anyway.

This is it, folks — the great divergence of the riches and poors; when John and Joan Q Public are SOL when they need to get their license renewed or whatever, while Muffy and Buffy Quartermaine coast along in comfortable ignorance (but complain about those burdensome taxes).

No doubt Barack Obama has secretly allowed all 479 African countries to become States — I mean United States States, not pretend “states”.

[re=402689]thehelveticascenario[/re]: Wait a minute…we don’t have hundreds of states.

I, too, at first wondered why this was post-worthy. I am not very bright.

Cicada September 4, 2009 at 11:42 am

The “hundreds of states” is just confirmation that we’ve joined the One World Government that Bachmann is always warning us about. Who knew crazy eyes was the Cassandra of our time?

It has gotten bad for the states of Confusion, Shock, Ecstacy and Decency. Especially South Decency.

KennedyAG September 4, 2009 at 11:55 am

[re=402704]hobospacejunkie[/re]: Yeah, my first thought was… “hundreds???”

BadKitty September 4, 2009 at 12:00 pm

“Hundreds of state offices shut down to save money”

You’re welcome. Check please.

Clancy_Pants September 4, 2009 at 12:01 pm

They already fixed it… The shame!

WhatTheHeck September 4, 2009 at 12:03 pm

There goes the “Keep Govnmint small” cry of the wingers. They sure are going to be pissed when they find out.

ManchuCandidate September 4, 2009 at 12:07 pm

I knew that the average US Americun don’t know maps and shit, but jeez… how many states do you guys have? Canada City doesn’t count.

The most effective way of reducing greenhouse gasses is closing the DMV. I would say ending the wars but those are necessary.

ZombieRichardFeynman September 4, 2009 at 12:10 pm

Oh-oh. I was counting on the leavening factor of Western Oregon to cancel out the 2-1 advantage the Republicans have here in the Cowboy Republic of Baker County.

SwanSwanH September 4, 2009 at 12:19 pm

That’s more than the 57 states in which Barry campaigned.

But was he born in any of these hundreds of states? Where’s the birth certificate, HuffPo?

Serolf Divad September 4, 2009 at 12:25 pm

All-right, that took me waaay longer than it should have.

Way Cool Larry September 4, 2009 at 12:36 pm

Welcome to the NWO!

Mojopo September 4, 2009 at 12:42 pm

…and then a bajillion super ninja robots are going to attack Barackzilla and save the world!

Slow Fish September 4, 2009 at 2:49 pm

Must be counting States of Mind.

AxmxZ September 4, 2009 at 3:09 pm

It gets worse: the Commonwealth of Lemuria officially running low on lemurs.

LoweredPeninsula September 5, 2009 at 2:17 am

President Obama has subversively annexed state’s around the world. Madam Chairwoman Bachmann was right.
