“So basically John Boehner became Nancy Pelosi without the charm?”
“For the last two years. Let’s give him credit. There’s no facelift with John Boehner. He is who he is.”
The above clip is from GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert’s conversation with guest host Larry O’Connor on the Dennis Miller Show, courtesy of Think Progress.
This would be the same Louie Gohmert, a birther, who recently pushed a theory that President Obama helped oust Muammar Qaddafi “so that al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood could take over Libya”; who wants to arm teachers with assault rifles; who said that the shootings that took place in the Aurora, Colo. movie theater were a result of “ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs” and questioned why nobody else in the theater had a gun to take down the shooter; who cast President Obama as an “evil emperor”; who joked about hitting “Nancy Pelosi” with a golf club; who lied at tea party rally: “I brought an abortion to show you”; who suggested that NYC 9/11 trials would be an “insane” gambit to create more jobs?…
You get the idea.
This man is an elected representative. Elected!
And because he represents those who voted for him (they did what again?), then clearly, many of his fellow Texans feel it’s acceptable to desperately resort to jokes about a fellow Congress member’s appearance.
Then again, she’s just, you know, a woman.
