The GOPers must be crazy

Tea Party insanity syndrome now reaching epidemic levels. In normally moderate Maine the GOP convention threw out the nominally sane platform and replaced it with flatout crazy.
The official platform for the Republican Party of Maine is now a mix of right-wing fringe policies, libertarian buzzwords and outright conspiracy theories.

The document calls for the elimination of the Department of Education and the Federal Reserve, demands an investigation of "collusion between government and industry in the global warming myth," suggests the adoption of "Austrian Economics," declares that "'Freedom of Religion' does not mean 'freedom from religion'" (which I guess makes atheism illegal), insists that "healthcare is not a right," calls for the abrogation of the "UN Treaty on Rights of the Child" and the "Law Of The Sea Treaty" and declares that we must resist "efforts to create a one world government."

It also contains favorable mentions of both the Tea Party and Ron Paul.
The only thing missing is the birtherism. The remaining burning question is will Snowe be shoveled out of the party like Bennet in Utah for a few weak attempts at good governance?

Gotta love it, abrogation of the U.S. constitution now Name of the Game! This is ideal, if the voting public can be counted on to see for itself that crazy is unsound - especially when it's in power.

Here's hoping they DO see it Ruth. For the 23% that have supported the crazy there's no hope at all I fear.
