Well, that’s what he said. And no, we have no idea what the hell he meant. But one thing is for sure when Texas Congressman Louie “Terror Babies” Gohmert goes on one of his unhinged rants — it will sound like he forgot to take his meds that morning. That’s pretty much the impression he gave on Wednesday during a committee hearing with Attorney General Eric Holder.
The East Texas congressman insisted that law enforcement officials and the Justice Department failed to prevent the Boston Marathon bombing because of “political correctness,” claiming that federal officials harass Christians but are worried about offending Muslims. Attorney General Holder, clearly exasperated by the bizarre attacks, pointed out that Gohmert was woefully misinformed. That brought an even angrier, rambling response from Gohmert. The Republican chairman of the committee tried to restore order as Gohmert charged that Holder was “casting aspersions on my asparagus.” Huh? See for yourself.

The only reason I would ever cast aspersions on Louie Gohmert’s asparagus would be if he tried to serve me that awful, overcooked, canned stuff…serve me a plate of it fresh, steamed lightly or roasted, with a bit of lemon butter and black pepper, and he won’t hear a single aspersion coming from me… 😉
he is entertaining.
Because he serves Tea with his asparagus, he will be reelected.
An Embarrassment? Ya think?
he’s an embarrassment to the human race.
Most of our representatives from Texas are an embarrassement.
If Gohmert had just said “you are casting aspersions on my broccoli” no one would have noticed and it would have made just as much sense.
Well, obviously, he meant to say “character” not “asparagus” and I’m not giving the dumb ass a pass, don’t get me wrong. I just wonder what goes on in his sociopathic brain that gets the wires crossed like that.
What I was more interested in the exchange was Gohmerts meltdown when confronted with his idiocy and lies. He just spouted off like he does on Fox but Holder challenged him on his own words and that pissed off Gohmert to no end!
Typical autocrat. Don’t challenge my au-thor-i-tay!
Poor little weasel of a man. Can’t be gone too soon, only to be replaced by a younger version I suspect.
I’d agree that “character” seems the most likely guess.
However, I was reminded of a classic bit of satire from The Onion.
OMG! Your school board is frightening! Cynthia Dunbar is a fruitcake! It is scary that the kids in TX are in the hands of kooks like that.
Cynthia Dunbar is a fruitcake, but she left the school board something like 3 years ago.
It is beyond my wildest imagination to understand what motivates the people in East Texas to continue to elect Gomer Pyle’s clone.
Perhaps they don’t know what the guy says. It is a giant puzzlement to me.
He is an embarrassment to Texas and really ought to be removed from any committee that deals with anything confidential, because like Bachmann, he cannot keep his yap shut.
