Apparently it's "Bash Texas" Week

The Texas Republican Party is revising their platform. I will be anxiously awaiting the results, to find out if they are still supporting such interesting proposals as a return to the gold standard, nullification of Marbury v. Madison, and the seizure of the Panama Canal. (Remember, Texans, if you vote for a Republican for a state office, this is what you're supporting!) The article provides a teaser:

Also in this year's GOP platform, support for legislation allowing the death penalty in cases of forcible rape, restoration of plaques honoring Confederate soldiers at the Texas Supreme Court and adoption of quote, "American English" as the official language of Texas and the United States.

They want to honor participants in an armed rebellion against the United States? That doesn't sound terribly patriotic.
