Shark jumping of the ultimate degree: Gohmert votes for Alan West for Speaker
by

Just heard this on MSNBC as they were overcommenting during the Speaker Voice Vote:

Louie Gohmert (R-Insanistan) voted for the recently booted Allen West for Speaker of the House.

Words fail.

3. How would you like to attend one of Gohmert's constituent meetings in his home district?

Now *there's* some real nutters, they keep voting for a lunatic.

They make crazy people look sane.

7. Goomer the Tumor defines "new frontiers in nuttiness"

I'm not in his district, but I'm five miles from the county line of his district.

My Congresscritter is Joe Barton (YUCK!) He's an oil company prostitute.
