Steve Stockman is officially the New Texas Congressional Asshole.

"Congressman Steve Stockman prepares East Texas pastors in D.C. to oppose Obama gun agenda"
"Two weeks before Wednesday’s White House event in which President Obama advocated ideas for tightening gun laws, Republican Congressman Steve Stockman was hosting a group of East Texas pastors in Washington to prepare the opposition. The group – which included ministers, home-school advocates and members of Stockman’s family – attended several days of meetings in early January paid in part by Gun Owners of America, a group that advocates repealing federal laws banning firearms from school zones. The pastors had sessions at the conservative Heritage Foundation, heard from Barry Goldwater’s one-time campaign manager and toured the Capitol with Christian historian David Barton of Aledo, according to an East Texas pastor who attended. Barton heads a Texas group, Wallbuilders, which denies the separation of church and state."

1. David Barton is not a historian.

From wikipedia:

Barton collects early American documents, and his official biography describes him as "an expert in historical and constitutional issues". Barton holds no formal credentials in history or law, and scholars dispute the accuracy and integrity of his assertions about history, accusing him of practicing misleading historical revisionism, "pseudoscholarship" and spreading "outright falsehoods". According to the New York Times, "many professional historians dismiss Mr. Barton, whose academic degree is in Christian Education from Oral Roberts University, as a biased amateur who cherry-picks quotes from history and the Bible." Barton's 2012 book The Jefferson Lies was voted "the least credible history book in print" by the users of the History News Network website.
