Republicans Say the Stupidest Things Part 6: Louie Gohmert and Elections

The more I find out about Louie-the-louse Gohmert, the more I dislike him. In fact, I'm starting to think I misnamed this series. I should have named it "Gohmert Pyle, U.S. IDIOT."

I've found that Gohmert's idiocy goes way back. For instance, while it may be ancient history, politically speaking, I ran across an article from March 23, 2010 where Gohmert actually said, "Ever since the safeguard of State legislatures electing U.S. Senators was removed by the 17th Amendment in 1913, there has been no check or balance on the Federal power grab for the last 97 years."

Sounds like he's all in favor of checks and balances, right? Well, not so much. He was referring to taking the election of U.S. senators OUT of the people's hands and into the hands of the state senates. He may be for states' rights, but he's certainly not interested in the voice of the people.

Oh, that guy is such a dork--one wonders how some of these people could possibly get elected! I frequently see clips of his stupid comments on The Daily Show. Entertaining and scary at the same time!

AliCanary It would be a lot funnier to me if I didn't live in Texas. You're right, it's pretty scary.
