Stupid to the Last Drop

The national poster child against the cancer of gerrymandering is Louie Gohmert. Here in Texas we call him Screwy Louie, as he is famous for babbling streams of offensive insults and nonsense.  One of his most infamous blatherings came after the tragedy at Newtown when he wistfully mused what would have happened had the school principal kept an M4 (a semi-auto rifle) in her office.  He regularly spouts this kind of bullshit.

On Tuesday, Louie Gohmert opened his mouth and again Louie Gohmert came out.  In a hearing of the subcommittee on energy and mineral resources considering a bunch of bills that essentially undo much of the regulation around oil and gas development, Gohmert testified that the oil spill from the Deepwater Horizon blowout really didn’t damage anything, that nature “does amazing things” and that on his personal trip to the Louisiana Gulf Coast he never found more than “a drop or two” of oil on the beach.  I would speculate that he never found any oil because you can’t see anything when you have your head up your ass as Gohmert often does.

The gulf blowout in 2010 was the worst offshore oil spill in history.  The well flowed  approximately 5 million barrels of oil and unmeasured billions of cubic feet of natural gas.  Much of that oil was never recovered.  Oh, and 11 men died in the blowout that caused the disaster.  Did some of the oil that came to the surface degrade naturally?  Of course, but it was a tiny amount.  What most people don’t understand is that oil that is spilled from a well in deep water reacts completely differently than oil spilled on the surface like happened during the Exxon Valdez spill in Alaska.  In deep water, the vast majority of oil never comes to the surface, becoming entrained in the deep water column for God knows how long, killing marine life and polluting the ocean floor.

Of course, you wouldn’t expect Screwy Louie to understand any of that, especially since he’s an expert in only one subject, namely being a jackass on national television.  Screwy Louis Gohmert, National Embarrassment of Texas.

Okay, Fess Up. Who Did This?

Y’all, quit messing with Louie Gohmert’s Wikipedia page. Seriously, y’all. It’s upsetting him.

Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert’s Wikipedia page was hacked on Wednesday, with the hacker altering the page to ask if he even had the capacity to serve.

The introduction part of Gohmert’s page was rewritten to say “Gohmert also prides himself on being the stupidest member of Congress.”

He’s not the stupidest person in Congress.  After all, he is a graduate of Baylor Law School and a former district court judge.  However, he is the damn goofiest member of congress.  Please keep that straight.

Honey, to be honest, you don’t need to decorate his wiki page with statements like that – just read his page and be covered in the awesome wonderfulness of goofy pride.

Sample –

Despite being an advocate for gun rights and supporting a proposal that allows mentally ill individuals to possess firearms, in early 2017 Gohmert expressed fear that he might become the target of gun violence similar to that experienced by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and refused to hold public town hall meetings.

Or –

In a 2012 meeting of the House Natural Resources Committee, Gohmert stated his strong support of a trans-Alaskan pipeline, as a means for caribou to have more sex.

Head on over and find your personal favorite.

Thanks to Steve V for the heads up.
