If you’re Louie Gohmert, people aren’t humans worthy to live unless they’re Christians, which is a completely un-Christian idea. He speaks of bombing Iran so casually, as if dropping tons of explosives on a country doesn’t kill the people, just their nuclear capability. During an appearance on yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas,…

    Isn’t he such a disgusting POS? This stupid a$$hole thinks The Democratic Party will be finished for decades… he must have read it from the toilet paper before flushing it down… that’s why he thinks Sh!t and talks Sh!t.

    This cinches repubs 2016 campaign platform and nominees.

    Gohmert / Jeb’16~ $6 T wasted on no WMD Iraq is a cakewalk compared to GOP’s $30 T+ Iran WWW-III goal to wipeout all but 2% of life on Earth!

    And of course his theme song will be Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran.

    You know I love watching old footage or reading the minutes of the democratic process from the early 20th century. Seeing how the party leaders of the time spoke and carried themselves had a certain dignity about it. Granted they were most likely thinking some backward stuff in today’s skein of the moral code but they had a mastery of the language. This plain old everyday Joe manner of political discourse in my opinion is more damaging than helpful and it only shows the low born nature of the leadership and to some degree the same nature of the constituency they represent. Ive heard the same speech from professional wrestlers that I hear out of characters like Gohmert. People more suitable to wear a singlet and hit you in the back of the head with a chair than find reasonable paths for moving forward.

    That being said Ric Flair is still the man and I would probably vote for him if he ever ran for office. HORSEMEN STYLE!! WOOOOOOooooooooo

    If he isn’t careful, he is going to get us all killed.

    I suggest the first bomb we drop on Iran should contain the (inert) corpse of Louie Gohmert…
    And wait for a response…
    See how they react.

      That would amount to biological warfare and we’d get in trouble for that.

    Why can’t these people understand that if we bomb Iran, that means war with Russia? And that Russia might, realistically, win? And that Russia winning might mean Russian troops in Washington, DC? The American military is all great until the enemy chooses to put up a resistance. And that’s enemies that are far, far poorer and less technologically advanced. It’s been 70 years since the US fought a victorious war against a country of similar military capabilities, and it’s been more than TWO HUNDRED years since the US fought that kind of war ONE-ON-ONE. And the US has never fought Russia.

    I’m seriously thinking that Texas is simply flipping the rest of the country the bird. Look at what they send to Congress – Gohmert, Cruz, Fahrenholt, Barton, Hensarling… Anybody read “The Marching Morons” by C.M. Kornbluth?

    Maybe if Louie had spent time in combat instead of the inside of court rooms during his time in the Army (Judge Advocate General Corps), he wouldn’t be singing this tune.

      I think it was Slim Pickens who rode the bomb – maybe loooooey could ride the bomb – just to test its trajectory of course.

    It’s easy to say, difficult to do and impossible to foresee the consequences of nation to nation violence. What amazes me are the people that don’t consider the idea that the recipients of violence might be vengeful.

    Louie Gohmert is lying.

    he doesn’t know how to tell time!

    The official ‘House Howler Monkey’ and other congressional Republicans and conservative pundits are fond of criticizing the Obama Administration’s foreign policy for being “too diplomatic”, as well as for not touting America’s “exceptionalism” and reminding all other nations of their inherent inferiority on a daily basis.

    Perhaps these pompous, self-righteous politicos don’t really know what diplomacy means:
    1 : the art and practice of conducting negotiations between nations
    2 : skill in handling affairs without arousing hostility : tact

    Threatening to bomb or invade a sovereign foreign power is NOT diplomacy, despite what these right wing war-mongers believe.
