Today's Dispatches From The Stupid Party - Platform Edition

'Tis  the season for crafting party platforms, with an eye toward local, State and Federal elections coming up this fall.  Two such platforms, by the Republican/ New Confederate/ Stupid Party in Texas and South Dakota, have some provisions worth noting.

What's Texas, home of creepy Open Carry gun fondlers and "do- these-glasses- make- me- look- smart?" Gov. Rick "Oops" Perry, thinkin'?
The latest platform calls for securing the border with Mexico, offering no amnesty for anyone in the country illegally and ending in-state college tuition for illegal immigrants.  [snip] 
The Texas Republican Party, which says "homosexuality tears at the fabric of society," also approved a policy of "reparative therapy" for gays that seek to change sexual orientation through counseling.  (our emphasis)
They seem nice.  If only there was "reparative therapy" for Republicans to restore their humanity.

How about South Dakota Republicans?  What are you resolvin' out there?
"Therefore, be it resolved that the South Dakota Republican Party calls on our U.S. Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States," the resolution reads, according to the Argus Leader. 
Allen Unruh, the delegate who sponsored the resolution, said he had a "thick book on impeachable offenses of the president." He called on South Dakota to "send a symbolic message that liberty shall be the law of the land."  (our emphasis)
Wethinks that "thick book" may have landed on Mr. Unruh's head at least a couple of times.  We have a message for the heretofore unheralded Constitutional scholar Unruh and his fellow dimbulbs:  Please proceed!
