It's Spring, so we shouldn't be surprised that the Churchill Tree is bearing its first poison fruit. (ht, urk!, Snapple over at DrunkaBlog, where Drunka's already posted the news, but with funnier commentary.)
Hawaiian sovereignty activists calling themselves the "Hawaiian Kingdom Government" surrounded Iolani Palace this morning, refusing to let state employees either enter or exit the historical site, saying the palace and surrounding grounds are property of the "Hawaiian Kingdom."
Talk about your coinkydink: Back in 2005, the Hawaiian Independence Blog was talking about just this sort of action.
Update: We note that the "Minister of the Interior" of the "Hawaiian Kingdom" is University of Hawaii-Manoa (professorial digs of Ward's cronies Ruth Hsu and Haunani-Kay Trask) poli-sci Ph.D. candidate David Keanu Sai. Update update: The blogmaster over at hawaiiankingdom.info tells us that Sai is with some other group calling itself Hawaiian Kingdom, and that Sai is not affiliated with the group that briefly occupied Iolani Palace. So Churchill's rabble-rousing in Hawaii incited the talk, talk Hawaiian Kingdom peeps instead of the fight, fight Hawaiian Kingdom peeps. Man, that's gotta burn his ass to a crisp.
