Go, Louie, Go!

March 30, 2015 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Oh y’all, John Boehner kicked Louie Gohmert so hard that Gohmert’s grandchildren will be born shaking.

Louie got tossed off two taxpayer funded congressional tours during the upcoming recess.  Boehner did it.  Boehner stressed that he didn’t do it because Gohmert ran against him for Speaker.

According to Gohmert’s office, the Texas Republican was slated to travel with California Republican Dana Rohrabacher “to meet with their friend,” Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. “But his participation was disapproved after all arrangements were made,” his communications director, Kimberly Willingham, told CQ Roll Call.

Gohmert was also scheduled to go to Africa with Oklahoma’s crazy man James Inhofe but Louie got booted from that trip, too.  I don’t think Boehner booted Louie for being ignorant, weird, and racist because Inhofe is all those things, too.

But, Gohmert got even.

Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) questions U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in WashingtonGohmert suggested it was important to talk to foreign leaders involved in the Middle East, but he said he could no longer do that “because the speaker won’t allow me to go overseas to talk to them.”

“I’m fine with that,” Gohmert said. “Because he canceled my trip this weekend, I’m going to be on Fox News, so thank you, Mr. Speaker.”

Yeah, being on Fox News is a bunch better than going to Egypt.

Uh, except when you go to Fox News and the show’s host thinks you’re dangerous.  Louie went on Fox News to announced that we should bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities, which is akin to pouring jet fuel on a forest fire.  The show’s host was babberflaster.

“You really don’t think — I mean, that’s a volatile option there,” Neville pointed out as she searched for words. “To go in and bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities, and you really believe that Russia will stop and say, ‘Okay, fine, go for it.’ I mean, that’s a dangerous…”

Gohmert argued that Russia might even get behind an attack on Iran because its leaders were “concerned about radical Islamist terror much more so than [the Obama] administration is.”

“They’re not crazy over there in Russia,” he insisted.

Maybe not, but they are plenty crazy sitting across the table on Fox News this morning.

Yes, (and I never thought I’d say this) thank you, Mister Speaker.

Thanks to Irene for the heads up.

    I love that Louie’s “communication director” is named Willingham. So perfect! Can you imagine THAT job?

    So Sen Jack Himoff of Oklahoma is going to Africa to use a whites only biffie?

  4. I would say that Louie is in the House just for comic relief, but there are so many others that the position is overfilled.

    It really is hard to top Inhofe’s claim that climate change isn’t happening because snowballs, and anyway God wouldn’t let it.

    I wondered how Louie got time on a Sunday Faux Nooz show. Turns out all the other Republican Doofuses were touring foreign countries on the taxpayer’s dime, and Louie was the only one left here at home to fill up the wasted air that is Faux Nooz.

  6. Mr. Orange-Ade no like Mr. Cray-cray and it shows! Its about time the Orange One put his foot down. I’d be a lot more congratulatory but to the O.O. but he has just about as much talent for governing as Mr. Cray-cray.

    So with John Bolton, and Baby Netanyahooo there are now 3 people who are on record as saying that bombing Iran is a good idea.

    Sheesh. Gohmert is dangerous. Doesn’t he know what happens when a nuclear bomb blows up? It melts the dirt for miles around and turns it into glass, never mind about the people and stuff there. No, I am guessing Gohmert would’t know that.

    Anybody have any ideas on where Louie should go? I have several….

    Yep. Sand to glass in two shakes of a lamb’s tail…

  11. So someone is claiming that Rohrabacher and Gohmert have a friend? Seems unlikely.

  12. maryelle says:

    Well, Corinne, how about sending Mr. Goatherd where the sun don’t shine, on a one way ticket a course?

  13. Don A, wasn’t it McCain who tested a microphone by chanting “Bomb Iran” to the tune of “Barbara Ann”?

  14. AliceBeth says:

    Rhea, yes it was McCain.
    Don’t the people in Africa have enough problems, can we really make them encounter Inhofe????

  15. AliceBeth, I’d like to see Inhofe trying to explain to some Africans that the climate isn’t changing. They know bloody well that it is, and they’re already suffering from the failing and erratic rains.

    Wait a minute…he has a “communications director”?
    Seriously. She must stay hidden under her desk most of the time.
