Dallas Lawyer Shows Up In Wise County To Read Declaration of Independence


All 1,300+ words of it. (I guess our founding fathers couldn't have just written, "It's not you. It's me.")

The local Tea Party read the Declaration on the courthouse square within months of President Obama's election. I remember watching it from the courthouse balcony with an assistant DA who went on an anti-Obama rant. "I'll tell you one thing," he said. "He will never get a second term."

Edit: The reading wasn't as dramatic as it was in Tyler where one criminal defense lawyer (and, amazingly, past president of the State Bar of Texas) embarrassed himself by refusing to participate because a "defendant" was reading the Declaration as well. That defendant?:  Kerry Max Cook who will soon become the next poster child for the Wrongfully Convicted.
