1. He does seem to be sporting a single digit IQ, doesn't he?

And yet, he seems so proud of it, he likes to show it off as often as possible.

11. "Forrest Gump Goes to Washington".

I just came back to watch this again. This is classic.

That buffoon just became a star. Jon Stewart is at his best with characters like that.


"Moo Goo Dog Pan"

6. Ted Cruz is going to give him competition for that title

but yeah, Louie was definitely behind the door when the brains got passed out. His gerrymandered district seems to adore him, too.

Louie's dumber than a bag of hammers. Ted is dumber than the same bag, empty.

9. I have long believed that Gohmert is not only the dumbest serving member of Congress

I suspect he may hold the record for dumbest member of Congress EVER to serve.

I have no doubt that his collar measurement is the same as his IQ, based on the wacky statements he makes.

Although the state legislator who asserted that there are more kid deaths from 'ping pongs' than guns is certainly in training to take a stab at that dubious honor.

10. You're not exaggerating.

I just watched the video & it was like watching a Forrest Gump after he's been indoctrinated by Fixed News & hate-talk radio :

Great segment!

12. Steve Stockman is certainly in the running.

My neighboring Congressthing Vicky Hartzler gets a dishonorable mention as well.....Paul Broun (R-Goofy), Michele Bachmann, Dana Rohrabacher,....put all these in a room together, you could have radioactive stoopid for a hundred-mile radius.

16. King of Morons

Rep. Louie Gohmert is still reigning king of morons. Who in the hell elected such an imbecile? Every utterance out of that hole in his head is a new low. Texas should secede.

20. Congress full of morons

Thank you for welcome. I 'm tired of do nothing Congress, whose loudest voices are idiots like Gohmert, King, Cruz, Rubio, Foxx, Bachmann, etc. They have the nerve to be on vacation again! The sequester is hurting real people and they could care less. They must go in 2014 mid-terms.

21. Damn right!

Democrats have tapped into one powerful truth, and that is that the women of this country want peace, fairness, equality and control over their own bodies. Romney found that out the hard way. Gohmert, King, Cruz, Rubio, Foxx, Bachmann and their ilk need to GO in 2014!
