He probably mentioned Captain Marvel to provoke an extra heavy reaction from the woman haters.  You KNOW they won't be able to resist.

You might want Captain Planet for this job.  He even does his own stunts, fwiw.

I'm doubting the realism of Superman being able to bring earth back to its exact orbit.

I was gonna say it's a brilliant slam that DC has so thoroughly lost the race with Marvel that Ted probably didn't even consider him.

OR

Ted is trolling hard by picking a woman over superman, knowing it'll melt people down.

Because altering the orbit of the moon should be fine.  What could go wrong?

I like that people exist who can clamber to the top of the highest field-expedient soapboxes they can erect and shout loudly about their desire for equality but utilize the last of that same breath to essentially declare any criticism of a woman to be sexist by default. That it happened over a fictional character originating in comic books is one of those amusing little treats in life which make it so interesting.

This is a novel approach, treating their stupid seriously.

Let's follow it, propose the bill, make Republicans filibuster a bipartisan proposal requesting aid from Captain Marvel to alter Earth's orbit.

Get those soundbites.

I was watching Beau of the Fifth Column's channel yesterday, and in his last two videos he's been referred to a study that Conservatives have more difficulty separating fact from fiction than Liberals.

If this is true, it explains so much.

Seriously!  How's Superman going to "blow" the earth back into orbit from outside the atmosphere?!?!  That doesn't make *any* sense!

Well obviously he took a very deep breath before exiting the atmosphere.

That must be why nobody ever criticizes Marjorie Taylor Greene.

And what is also funny is Louie Gohmert will not even realize he is being mocked. The repube stupidity in Washington is astounding.

"...mercifully free from the ravages of intelligence" -Time Bandits.
That quote comes to mind every time Gohmert is in the news.

At least the character of Capt. Marvel resides in reality.

Sure, the character is fictional, but the character is reality "cannon" of you will.

What Gohmert is suggesting doesn't exist in reality at all.

And no one besides Lieu is clowning him about those statements.

Any guess on the number of nay votes a bill like that would garner?

"Why are we asking for help from a superhero that isn't even from our planet? Once again the Dems are trying to give American jobs to foreign aliens."

Gohmert sounds like the sort of man who enjoys a collegial weekly chess game with Democrat Rep Hank Johnson, the man who thinks Guam could tip over. Just two mighty brains, competing with each other in the time-honoured game of intelligence and skill.

So you went with a woman owned minority small business consulting company?  You know she'll charge 10% on the overs and sub the whole job out to Superman.

Just get some SUV robots to Easter Island and let them aim their exhausts up.

Maybe he was trying to say that climate change was the result of naturally occurring changes in the Earth's orbit and the moon's orbit, that there was fark all people could do about it, and his routine about BLM and the Forest Service was just sarcasm.

Maybe he's as dumb as a post. After all, he is from the party of Jewish space lasers.
