Madore takes care to remind public that "We are only looking for words, not physical gestures"
After the roaring public relations success that was the "In God We Trust" debacle, Clark County councilors voted today to post the words of the Declaration of Independence on the walls of the county hearing room, as well.
"We are looking to honor the words of our forefathers," said councilor and motion-control enthusiast David Madore, "and also to provide selective reminders that support our own positions while failing to acknowledge the greater body of historical record."
Councilor and revenge enthusiast Tom Mielke squinted his eyes and groaned. "That's a lot of words, in that thing there. Couldn't we get something shorter and snappier?"
"What a great idea!" shouted Madore. "I'm going to go ahead with the Declaration, because it's something I want and because I've already authorized the purchase order to spend taxpayer money on this frivolous expense. But let's put out a call to the community and see what THEY'd like to see!"
The county then issued a press release asking for comments and suggestions on what slogans and phrases the community would like to see on the wall.
