    Texas has a culture of proud ignorance and an inferiority complex the size of...well...Texas.

      You couldn't be more wrong or more off-base about Texans but bash away if it makes you feel better. Just don't forget that Texas isn't alone in having batshit reps. They come from any number of states and believe in all sorts of stupid stuff. Iowa and Minnesota each have a particularly loathesome congresscritter representing their state.

      3.2 million Texans voted for Obama in 2012 and all the major metropolitan areas voted Obama.

      btw, that 3.2 million means more Texans voted for Obama than the total number of people living in Iowa. Texas is a really big state and it should surprise no one that a few asshats make it on the political scene.

        And it just so happens that those few end up being the Governor, then the next Governor after him, the previous "President," the previous "Vice President," the previous House Majority Leader, the Creationist school boards that dictate the content of textbooks nationwide, and so on, and so on?  I'm glad there are 3.2 million remotely decent people in Texas.  I hope some of them recover from Stockholm Syndrome some day.
