Texas wingnut Rep. Louie Gohmert: demons are inside the Beltway
Wow. Do we need to call in Papa Ratzi’s exorcist to take care of this?
Speaking shortly after he riled up a crowd at Tuesday’s Tea Party protest, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) declared that “demons” – yes, demons – have invaded the capital (and likely the souls of Democrats), forcing lawmakers to mislead the public about the content of the health care bill.
“Well it would take a demon to be this dishonest about a bill,” the Texas Republican told the Huffington Post. “If they would just read the bill, they would see what they are saying is dishonest.”
…”I brought an abortion to show you today,” he said, hosting a copy of the health care bill in his right hand. The crowd responded with a chant of “Abort the bill!”
And then, out of nowhere, Gohmert began spreading the word that underworld spirits were lurking around the Capitol building behind him. “There’s a whole lot of demon going on,” he said. “There are a lot of demons around here apparently.”
