posted the same story a few minutes after you did. Have added some additional sources, so am leaving mine up, as well.

We are a global laughingstock. The reaction in Scotland is muted only by the fear that the cretinist mental disease is spreading there.

Related: Got an email just now from Texas Freedom Network:

…a sampling of the extremism promoted by Texas Republicans at their convention this month in Fort Worth. That platform:

The Texas Republican Party Platform: A Biennial Exercise in Extremism

- Declares separation of church and state is a “myth” and calls for Congress to withdraw federal court jurisdiction over cases involving religious freedom and the Bill of Rights.
- Calls for teaching creationist arguments in public school science classrooms
- Opposes the sale and use of emergency contraception and backs the Legislature’s war on women’s health programs.
- Rejects “any sex education other than abstinence until marriage” in public schools.
- Adopts a radical position that would essentially bar abortion even in cases of rape, incest or even to save a woman’s life.
- Advocates for the repeal of the Voting Rights Act, minimum wage laws and the Endangered Species Act as well as the abolishment of the Environmental Protection Agency.
- Attacks LGBT Texans as a threat to families and objects to laws that would protect them from job discrimination and hate crimes.
- Calls for further funding cuts for public schools following draconian cuts by lawmakers in 2011.
- Seeks to change the 14th Amendment to limit citizenship by birth only to those born to a U.S. citizen.
- Threatens federal judges with impeachment if they don’t toe the far right’s line in controversial court cases.
- Alarmingly, the party platform also seeks to increase the authority of the highly politicized and dysfunctional State Board of Education over what Texas students learn in their public schools.

It’s become glaringly obvious that an informed voter base will not serve the interests of the GOP and its owners.
