If Gomer had another brain cell it would die of loneliness.

Ghomert couldn't let Steve King get away with the only stupid quote of today.
 
2014-08-14 03:07:35 PM  
If Gohmert left Texas the state's average IQ would rise by 10 points. And that's really saying something.

"OTM- Other tgan Mexicans, as we call them"

What the FARK is *wrong* with you??? christ what an asshole.

Well Steve King informed him all these immigrants were of the same "continental origin," so it's understandable how he thought they could have ebola.

Yes, it's saying that it would increase by orders of magnitude.

Stupid quote trifecta now in play?

After reading that idiotic statement from Steve King, I was wondering why we hadn't heard somethung utterly dumb from Louie Gohmert yet.  The man doesn't disappoint.
 
2014-08-14 04:02:13 PM  
So, just a kind of unrelated question here. Does anyone who can actually read or write admit that they voted for this assclown?

Anyone?

It's a veritable race to the bottom.

Dumb is bad enough.  When combined with nasty and mean-spirited it's a particularly noxious blend.

"It includes a spike in people from countries where terrorism abounds," he continued. "We have people coming in from countries where Ebola is located."

...undocumented Democrats

OTM - Other Than Mexicans


Christ, what an ignorant asshole.

We, he is a stupid ignorant piece of shiat and so is anyone that agrees with him or defends him. In addition, I believe the universe would be a better place if a gaping, steaming, lava filled gash would open up in the earth and swallow him whole, but only if he has to spend a lot of time in painful agony before dying a futile death. Furthermore, literally, not figuratively, but literally anyone who defends this assclown deserves to have their genitals ripped from their living screaming bodies and fed to them.

It's East Texas.
Dry counties.
Incredibly racist rednecks.
Patent trolls.
We should just let them secede and join Louisiana and Arkansas.
It could be called Dumbfarkistan.

"We have people coming in from countries where Ebola is located."

I hate to break it to you Mr. State Representative, but there are currently more cases of Ebola in the United States than in the rest of all of the Americas combined.  Including Canada.

Asparagus and Morel Spaghetti
INGREDIENTS
½ oz. dried morel mushrooms (about 5 mushrooms)
1 lb. spaghetti
¼ cup olive oil, plus more for drizzling
3 tbsp. unsalted butter
6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
3 medium shallots, finely chopped
1 bunch asparagus (1 pound), ends trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
¾ cup vegetable stock
½ cup heavy cream
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for serving

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Place morels and 8 cups boiling water in a bowl, set aside until morels are tender, about 30 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer mushrooms to a cutting board and slice in half lengthwise.

2. Pour soaking liquid into a large stockpot, discarding any dirt or sediment at the bottom. Add additional water sufficient to cook pasta, bring to a boil. Season water with salt, add spaghetti; cook, stirring, until al dente, about 13 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, heat oil and butter in a 12 inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and shallots; cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 4 minutes. Add reserved morels, plus asparagus and stock, bring to a boil. Cook, covered, until asparagus is tender, about 3 minutes. Uncover, add cream, cook until slightly reduced, about 3 minutes.

4. Remove from heat and add pasta, juice, zest, salt, pepper, and cheese. Toss until evenly combined. Drizzle with more olive oil and sprinkle with more cheese, if you like.

Yeah there's people coming from countries with ebola, on airplanes.

Know who rides on airplanes from West Africa to Gohmert's district? Oilmen, thats who. Asshole needs to watch his step, or he might lose his sweet sweet campaign dosh.

Do you use asparagus that's been pre-aspersioned? Or do you cast your aspersion on it freshly?

Coming across the Mexican border?

Well as long as there's a chance of Louis Gohmert catching it, I say let 'em in.

Is there anybody with the belief they even have Ebola, let alone spreading it, I mean other than Goober?

Thank you for not mirroring Mrbogey's "Is there people" subject-verb train wreck. That made my eye twitch.

yeah, they're catching ebola then swimming across the atlantic and the gulf of mexico to sneak across the border, it is very scary.

I use only asparagus grown with organic aspersions.

I'm actually an undocumented Democrat by default. I vote democrats and send tem money but registered independent in my state. I like to keeps options open and being undocumented I'm expecting free stuff anyday now.
 
2014-08-14 05:36:32 PM  
I'm going to register as a Democrat, fly to Sierra Leone, renounce my American citizenship, infect myself with ebola, clandestinely make my way to Canada, sneak into America, drive down to Texas, sneak into Gohmert's house and lick his toothbrush. That's the kind of insane response this thoroughly stupid comment warrants.

Because you travel across 2,800 miles of ocean JUST to sneak through a few thousand miles of Central America, JUST to sneak though another thousand or so of Mexico, JUST to sneak into the US.

Jesus, your travel broker must drive a diamond encrusted Bugatti Veyron. You probably go to Canada from Michigan via Australia, don't you?

I was going to register as a Republican once, and accidentally checked the box for "Sex Offender". I figured what the hell, I seemed to fit right in, and the neighbor's kids stay off of my lawn.

My parents live in his district (moved there because "they think right").  They met him at the local VFW post and said he was a very nice man.  I think I bled out a pint bitting my tongue so hard.

/Love my parents

I like where you're going with this. Can I suggest licking his asparagus instead? It seems only fitting.
