It’s stupid legislation season in Missouri and Kansas
As we all know, it’s not easy to outdo the Tea Party gang in Congress for sheer nuttiness, but there are at least a few Republicans in state legislatures who are trying their darnedest.
Take, for example, State Rep. Mike Leara in Missouri, who wants to MAKE IT A FELONY for a fellow legislator to even propose any gun-safety measure that Leara considers at odds with the Second Amendment.
And then there are the lawmakers in the Kansas legislature who want to REQUIRE TEACHERS to question the scientific basis for theories of global warming.
Never mind that an estimated 97 percent of credentialed climate scientists agree that anthropogenic global warming is the real deal.
Whoever it was who recently said that Republicans have got to do something about the widespread perception that theirs is the stupid party obviously was onto something.
