not OK

From the batshit crazy bin, this in the Times yesterday:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Frustrated by recent political setbacks, tea party leaders and some conservative members of the Oklahoma Legislature say they would like to create a new volunteer militia to help defend against what they believe are improper federal infringements on state sovereignty.

Tea party movement leaders say they've discussed the idea with several supportive lawmakers and hope to get legislation next year to recognize a new volunteer force. They say the unit would not resemble militia groups that have been raided for allegedly plotting attacks on law enforcement officers.

Think it through. You believe there are "improper federal infringements on state sovereignty", so your solution is to get a bunch of armed guys together.

Not, say, a couple of lawyers.

And this in Oklahoma, home of the worst domestic terrorist attack in our history.

Crazy days.
