In Maine, the inmates are now running the asylum

Last weekend, at the Maine Republican convention, a majority of the gathered delegates voted to scrap the state party's old platform and replace it with whatever teabaggers wanted. Some examples: they're against The Fairness Doctrine (they only want to hear their point of view), EFCA (fair wages and workplaces are for commies), ACORN (I guess they haven't heard), "Reassert the principle of 'Freedom of Religion' (I didn't realize it left), "Marriage is an institution between a man and a woman." (big government intrusion into the personal lives of selected taxpaying citizens is okay.) Defeat climate change scientists (Polar Bears are dangerous anyways), and my favorite - eliminate the Department of Education (when it's obviously needed more than ever)! Read more at Salon.
By the way, notice the age of the folks deciding the future of Maine's Republican Party.
Good luck navigating these waters, Senators Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe!
