And All These Ideas are Really, Really Awful

The Texas GOP has published its 2012 party platform. Among other wishes, the old party of Lincoln would now like to get rid of this:
Voter Rights Act – We urge that the Voter Rights Act of 1965 codified and updated in 1973 be repealed and not reauthorized.
It would be horrible enough if the Texas teabag party wanted to not reauthorize the VRA. But today's teabaggers are so emboldened they feel comfortable enough saying they just want the Act repealed, expunged as it were, deemed to not have ever existed, to not ever have been needed. And there's a lot more really bad, awful stuff beyond this, which you can read about if you've the stomach for it.
