Your Annual Dose of Crazy – This Time with Extra Cheese

The Texas GOP platform is a thing of wonder – that is, it makes you wonder what planet these folks live on.  Charlie Pierce, one of Red’s favorites – listen to him on Only a Game on NPR – takes down the Texas GOP and takes them down hard.

Connoisseurs of American wingnuttery wait with great anticipation every four years for the release of the Texas Republican state platform. It is like Christmas morning. We wait for it the way America waited for that first cold beer on the evening of December 4, 1933. This is the real deal, the pure uncut hallucinogen of all American political ideology, the ultimate monster from the conservative Id. And this is not produced from some compound in Idaho. It is not stapled to a lamp post in downtown Coeur d’Alene. It is the official adopted philosophy of the Republican party in one of the most important states in the Union.
