Video of the Week – June 26, 2020

As pathetic and delusional as he is colorful and right-wing, U.S. Congressman Louie Gohmert made another spectacle of himself this week, as he tried to drown out critics of U.S. Attorney General William Barr during a hearing by repeatedly tapping his desk.

“If there are no rules about when people can talk, there’s no rules about when you can make noise,” Gohmert insisted after Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Georgia, asked the chairman to order the sergeant-at-arms to end the disruption by removing him.

Aside from his grammatical infraction and toddleresque antics, Gohmert is one reason why even many Texans avoid traveling to or through East Texas.

Tweet of the Week – December 20, 2019

“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”

– Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), in response to the ‘Conservative Squad’.

The ‘Conservative Squad’ is a quartet of Republican congressional candidates – Michelle Fischbach of Minnesota; Nancy Mace of South Carolina; Jessica Taylor of Alabama; and Beth Van Duyne of Texas – who claim they are the answer to four Democratic women in Congress known as the ‘Squad’: Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Ohio.
