Louie Gohmert is an elected member of the U.S. House of Representatives. That he is clearly head-trauma insane does not seem to trouble his Texan constituents.
See if you can understand the following:
“I’ve had people say, ‘Hey, you know, there’s nothing wrong with gays in the military. Look at the Greeks,'” he said. “Well, you know, they did have people come along who they loved that was the same sex and would give them massages before they went into battle. But you know what, it’s a different kind of fighting, it’s a different kind of war and if you’re sitting around getting massages all day ready to go into a big, planned battle, then you’re not going to last very long. It’s guerrilla fighting. You are going to be ultimately vulnerable to terrorism and if that’s what you start doing in the military like the Greeks did … as people have said, ‘Louie, you have got to understand, you don’t even know your history.’ Oh yes I do. I know exactly. It’s not a good idea.”
I’m beginning to think that I can get a lot more massages if I just go gay. It appears that being gay is really about getting massages pretty much all day long. Why this is not a good idea is not really clear to me, but my mother didn’t inhale benzene when I was in her womb.
So, what do I know?
