What it takes to get elected in Texas... for your name listed on the "R"ight side of the ballot. Whether or not you have any sense apparently makes no real difference.

In fairness, this kooky lady comes from the same city that elected "D" Sheila Jackson Lee.

I've had it pointed out to me that Rep. Debbie Riddle is merely parroting what she heard from our beloved Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas).

In other words, Louie is continuing his long-standing practice of keeping bigots fed with fear. Apparently there are enough of the fearful in his East Texas district to keep him in office.

Shame. I keep hoping that one of these days we can sit down and have an honest conversation with folks, but I guess honesty doesn't get one reelected.

Damn! That woman is dumb. What happened to her mouth? Did she get a back alley Botox?

Possibly the Stepford treatment gone wrong.

Louie Gohmert makes Texans look completely bat shit. How this man ever rose to this elected position is mind-boggling.

Rhetoric and made up out of thin air BS hits the media and all debate rationale goes out the window. Their public behavior is despicable.

It's no wonder everyone is fed up with all politicians. It's no wonder those of us who are older and wiser want no more to do with politics.
