Louie Gohmert is at it again:

Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said Sunday that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be remembered as a historic leader, on par with King Solomon and other biblical rulers.

“I told [Netanyahu], and some people think this is crazy and meddling — apparently from the reaction some of y’all actually know who I am — but I told the prime minister, I said, ‘I mentioned this to you in 2009′ — we met a couple of times since then, but anyway — ‘I mentioned this to you in 2009 and I want to reiterate it, I think, I’m not a prophet, I know the Old Testament, I know history, I think you’ve got a chance to be one of Israel’s great leaders,’” he said at the South Carolina Tea Party Convention in Myrtle Beach.

I think his statement that he is not a prophet might be the first thing he’s said that I’ve ever agreed with.
