Let’s have us a friendly little contest…

…to see how long you can stomach watching this video clip of our very own Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-idiculous), who started out speaking in opposition to a sexual orientation provision in a hate crimes bill, but quickly ricocheted off into crazytown with discussions on bestiality, pedophilia, necrophilia, the tried-and-true “I’m not a racist because I once voted for a black man too,” and wraps it up with “the little guy with the mustache” in Germany from the 1940’s.

Yep, all this from a sexual orientation provision in a hate crimes bill. (key quote: “some say ‘that sounds like fun’…”)

I think I gave up at a minute forty-five. Beat that score.

    My favorite. “When you lose morality in a nation, you create economic instability.” Say, what? Oh, yes … the rarely spoken about morality/economy index theory. Moron.

    You could literally hand this transcript to Stephen Colbert to read —and poof, it’s a comedy bit. Hilarious!
