We often make fun of idiot Republicans around here, but these days, down in Mississippi, it appears they can bring the stupid whether Democrat or Republican. To wit, Democratic Representative Steve Holland has introduced a bill that would...well...just...well...read it for yourself:
"For all official purposes within the State of Mississippi, the body of water that is located directly south of Hancock, Harrison and Jackson Counties shall be known as the "Gulf of America." ... This act shall take effect and be in force from and after July 1, 2012."
