For your entertainment and edification Everybody now (courtesy Wonkette) presents the new Florida "vanity" license plate.
I don't know quite what to say except I believe –by law – that you have to nail it to the back of your truck instead of using screws, but I can't be sure.
As for the thorny church and state separation thingy, FL Gov Charlie "Jesus H." Crist said, and Everybody quotes, "If they don’t want one they don’t have to buy one."
Hit a tree, hit a ditch, License Plate Jesus, He don't bitch...
The best comment Everybody has seen on this so far (again, courtesy Wonkette) is this:

You think that’s Jesus? Doesn’t say it’s Jesus. Could be a crown a’thorns, but could be a scrunchie. No First Amendment problem here. Move along...

borrowing stealing from Wonkette, they ran an item over the weekend that laid me out. It turns out that Texas Gov Rick “Good Hair” Perry, a week or so after seceding from the Union to form the “Peoples Republic of Texas”, asked the Centers for Disease Control for 37,000 doses of antiviral drugs to combat the Swine Flu. Again, we’ll give you the best comments we saw:
Now is NOT THE TIME to waste valuable American assets on unstable foreign nations like The Holy Sovereign Christian Republic of Texistan - besides, aren’t all those folks down there believers in snake-handling and faith-healing? Let ‘em call Benny Hinn!
I’m sorry where did you say you were calling from…TEX-AS? Um, I’m sorry I don’t see TEX-AS on our list of recognized states. Are you sure you sent in your annual renewal form? Oh, I see, you DIDN’T send it in? But you were hoping you were still covered? Yeah…oh-kay…sure I see why you’d want to check on that but I’m afraid we can’t help…You guys are pretty close to Mexico, right? I hear they have pretty good drugs over there…maybe they can…oh, I see, you’re not speaking to Mexico. Well, I’m so sorry I couldn’t help you today Mr..uh..Perry. Buh-bye.
And, uh, we’ll say buh-bye for now, too.
