Can you spot the difference?

Oh, Lord deliver us, there's a bill afoot in the Mississippi state legislature to reinstate Colonel Reb as the Ole Miss mascot! Isn't Mississippi SO backerds, y'all?

 

AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 37-115-1, MISSISSIPPI CODE OF 1972,
1 TO PROVIDE THAT THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI SHALL BEAR THE
2 NICKNAME "OLE MISS REBELS"; TO PROVIDE THAT THE UNIVERSITY'S
3 MASCOT SHALL BE "COLONEL REBEL"; TO REQUIRE THAT THE UNIVERSITY'S
4 BAND SHALL PLAY "DIXIE" AND "FROM DIXIE WITH LOVE" AT HOME AND
5 AWAY FOOTBALL AND BASKETBALL GAMES AT WHICH THE BAND, OR SOME
6 PORTION OF THE BAND, IS PRESENT; AND FOR RELATED PURPOSES.

...WAIT A GODDAMN SECOND. This wouldn't be the work of a Mississippi State grad who's using his pulpit as a civil servant to heap shame upon his alma mater's in-state rival, would it? TOP SCORE! Red Cup Rebellion asks, "Mark DuVall: Epic MetaTroll or Disgruntled, Slightly Empowered Redneck?" We see no reason at all he can't be both:

Representative DuVall is a member of the Mississippi Farm Bureau and Woodmen of the World.

Representative DuVall was born on July 6, 1975 and is a single. He is of the Christian faith.

Well, clearly. Discussion for the afternoon: How would Jesus troll?
