Texas – Breeding Ground for Idiots?

George W. Bush, Karl Rove, Scott McClellan, Alberto Gonzalez, Harriet Miers…

There’s a whole lot of Texans in the current mis-administration, but I’m starting to think there must something in the air down there that turns people – mostly Republicans – into idiots.

Check out this guy that Shakespeare’s Sister found: Larry Kilgore. He’s running for Governor of Texas. His website says:

My first priority as governor will be to submit to Biblical law given to us by the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ. My job, according to 1st Peter 2:14, will be to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right.

On a link marked “Issues” he lists the various Biblical punishments his administration will mete out: Death for crimes of adultery, murder (including abortion), rape, ‘homosexual acts’, deadly negligence, and bestiality. For offenses like graffiti, porn, and strip clubs, he advocates one to forty lashes.

Surprisingly, illegal immigrants would only be subject to a minimum of 5 lashes, $3000 fine, and deportation. (You’d think he’d want the death penalty for that too, as a way to cut down on illegal border crossings.)

He also calls for Texas secession, wants all Texas troops in Iraq returned to the state (to help with the secession), will eliminate funding for public schools, health and human services, and prisons.

His website also boasts a link to a test that tells you whether or not you’ll get into heaven. And if you fail, tells you why you need God. There might even be a little page that tells you what to pray to Jesus to get yourself saved, but I couldn’t be bothered to look. (Yeah, yeah…I’m going to hell for that too….)
