Oh look. America's Dumbest Congressman is still alive. We hadn't heard from him in a while, so I was worried we were going to find his corpse in a snowy parking lot somewhere, his tongue still firmly frozen to a lamppost.
Yesterday on “Washington Watch,” Rep. Louie Gohmert railed against “the hate crimes by this administration” against conservative Christians, such as the nuns of the Little Sisters of the Poor.
"Washington Watch" is a program of the Tony Perkins hate group Family Research Council, and yes Republicans still continue to genuflect to the hate group leader because it's the right kind of hate group. The kind that will host America's Dumbest Congressman to fret about how this administration is rounding up Christians and, hell if I know, taking their good Christian ammo. He's not exactly the most coherent of our legislators.
The two also blasted an Obama administration's effort to fight hate crimes directed at Muslim-Americans. Gohmert dismissed concerns about such hate crimes while saying that the White House is ignoring crimes against Christians and Jews throughout the world because “we have a United States leadership that will not protect Christians [and] puts a real prize on protecting Muslims.”
For those of you who don't remember, our primary purpose in highlighting the stylings of America's Dumbest Congressman is to point out that this person is actually in charge of writing our nation's laws. And he, like a great many of his compatriots, is a stone-cold moron. A lunatic. A crackpot. A man who in any other country would likely have to make due with holding up badly spelled rants on cardboard signs while shouting to passing cars that the ocean's oysters are fed up with our predations and they will have their revenge, they will, they are growing tiny little legs just for that purpose—but in America we elect these people to Congress, apparently because states like Texas think it is funny. It is not funny, Texas. You are a bad state and you should feel bad.
The congressman then quoted from the book of Hosea to suggest that America is facing God’s wrath because “nations are made to account when they put leaders in place that persecute those who are trying to follow the words of God.”
Holy crap, the man is book-reading. And he's probably reading the pages in order; nobody tell him about the Jesus bits, we don't want to spoil it for him.
And with this, we have fulfilled our obligation to look in on Rep. Louie Gohmert, also known as America's Dumbest Congressman, from time to time to make sure he is not sticking forks in wall outlets or trying to swallow one of his own socks. We will continue to watch over him as best we can, at least until the eventual Republican nominee declares him their vice presidential pick. After that he's their problem.
