We gleefully reported on nutjob Tea Party Rep. Louie Gohmert’s (R-TX) decision to challenge John Boehner for the Speaker of the House gavel. He’s garnered some support from the whack-job right, and now, college dropout and TV/radio personality entertainer Glenn Beck is saying that we’re all doomed — America AND the GOP — is Louie’s not elected.
From Right Wing Watch:
?Louie is not going to compromise, Louie is the guy. We have another chance, America, we have another chance. Please don’t pass this signpost, please, there’s another exit, take it,? Beck said on his show today, adding that conservatives should consider themselves ?done with the Republican Party? if Boehner secures re-election.
?Shut the switchboard down, tell everybody you know in the freedom movement, ?Louie Gohmert.? Call them now,? he said.
See that number on the screen? Y’all think we ought to call it? We’re honestly going to get nowhere for the next couple of years. Maybe if we root for Louie, the country will be so FUBAR that the GOP will NEVER win another election. What say you, Liberal Americans?
