I found the story about Texas Governor Greg Abbott and the possible takeover of Texas by the US Military amusing. Now there is this. Todd Smith, a former Texas State Lawmaker is criticizing the governor over this.
Most of us recognize the insanity of this. But now that Todd Smith is getting into it, I need to point out my suspicions as to why Todd Smith is a former state lawmaker.
This pandering to idiots he talks about is what Republicans do these days. Because those “idiots” he is pandering to have become the Republican base! That is where the most rabid supporters are and it is why the Republican party has been on a decade long quest to see how far off the rails toward the lunatic fringe right it can go. For evidence see, Michele Bachmann, Ted Cruz, Rich Perry, Herman Cain, Rick Santorum, Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Steve King, Sharron Angle, and more.
