Fox "News" clown cheers Rick Perry's secession talk

During an appearance on Fox & Friends, Geraldo Rivera condemned Texas Governor Rick Perry's suggestion that his state might secede from the United States.

Rivera said that talk of secession is a "line that you do not cross."

In response to Rivera's correct and not-subject-to-debate assertion that one would have to be "a lunatic" to argue in favor of secession, Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy leans forward and laughs, "It's a great soundbite!"

No, you moron. It is, at best, a stupid soundbite. At worst, it constitutes a seditious conspiracy against the United States.

§ 2384. Seditious conspiracy

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.
