Louie Gohmert Is Still Two Bricks Shy Of A Load

It is clear that the reason for the collapse was due to a collision with the super structure of the bridge – not a lack of structural integrity of the bridge. The bridge would indeed be standing today had the truck’s load NOT rammed the super structure of the bridge.

Hummm … and as Charles Pierce points out, “92 percent of a bridge really isn’t a bridge.”

No, I believe it would be a diving board.
