AL Speaker Mike Hubbard Will Be Our "Maginot Line" Against The Feds - & Just As Effective

Well, this is truly an astonishing  Tweet  from Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard.  He's promising the Alabama Republican Party (or perhaps himself alone) will be our "last line of defense" against the Federal government.  Mike Hubbard self parody

Why yes, campers... I believe it is!

Besides the breathtaking display of hypocrisy on display here, it's also amazing that Hubbard took the time to have this pledge made into a graphic image.  Though, from the looks of it, it doesn't appear to have taken that much time....

As one Twitter follower quipped:

Can you give me the name of the ransom note generator you used to make that? Mine lacks some of the features

The Alabama Republican Party: masters at self-parody

Don't forget (4.00 / 3)
Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base, Aviation Academy and other military installations have a heavy presence in Montgomery and around the state, too!

And don't forget (4.00 / 3)

That the Entire F'n Army Materiel Command - that would be the part of the Army that has the checkbook - is now based in Huntsville.

I hope Huntsville doesn't become the next Fort Sumter...

You know, our Mikey may be onto something here (4.00 / 3)
After all, one of the biggest problems the Maginot line had was that after the invasion, the guns were all pointing the wrong way...

Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.
