It's truly bizarro-nutso-crazypants that this is in a party platform in this, a time of such sweeping progress and public support.

By adopting such shocking language and terrorizing tacts, the Texas Republican party is, in fact, walking an ever-shortening plank. Those of us who understand demographics and trend lines get that. I'm just surprised you all are so quick to admit the obvious about this ill-advised journey toward political irrelevancy.
