The Republican Civil War is getting hotter. Today at the religious right’s Values Voter Summit in the nation’s capital, East Texas Congressman Louie “Terror Babies” Gohmert claimed Arizona Sen. John McCain — the 2008 GOP presidential nominee — is a supporter of al Qaeda. Seriously. Says Gohmert about McCain:
“I heard just before I came, some senator from Arizona, a guy that liked Gaddafi before he wanted to bomb him. A guy that’s been to Syria and supported al Qaeda and the rebels. But he was saying today the shutdown has been a fools’ errand. And I agree with him, the president and Harry Reid should not have shut this government down.”
Tea party activists have been urging Gohmert to challenge U.S. Sen. John Cornyn for re-election in next year’s Republican primary in Texas.
The Dallas Morning News has more from the right-wing feeding frenzy at the Values Voter event here.

What a tool! How can someone so ignorant be in public office. Louise Gohmert is a Texas version of Al Qaeda.
Hoping they do…
If only Gohmert would run against Cornyn
And it’s truly a wonderful thing to witness.
They just get more and more stupid.

I hope he does, and wins. Please!
Tear it down so it can be rebuilt. Nothing wrong with a rational conservative voice in the public forum. But, it needs to be rational.
huh. That’s kinda bizarre.
They should have taken over the Constitution Party. Those guys were already John Birchers.
I love it when they chomp on each other
maybe if they march around 7 times they will just fall down it’s worked for them before.
If Gohmert, Bachmann and Inhofe ever walked into the same small room together, the Universe would come to an end.
Something very close to that did happen last week: Gohmert, Bachmann, and Steve King went on a bad will tour of Egypt:
Correction: Last month, not last week.
Well. the zombie apocalypse is real: unthinking reactionaries eating each other’s brains.
Oh how rich it would be for Gohmert to run against Cornyn and win! Then it would be an easy win for a good progressive to take that Senate seat……ah yes
“It isn’t the ignorant S.O.B’s. that are in office that bother me so much, it’s the ignorant S.O.B’s. that put them there that scare the s#*t out of me!
Louie Gohmert is one ignorant S.O.B. . So what does that make the voters in Texas’s First Congressional District?
It makes the voters in Texas’ First most happy and ignorant lunatics or the few angry and embarrassed sane.
