Okay, if you ever need a measuring stick to find out just how much Steve Stockman’s tray is not in the full upright and locked position, you have this:

Tea party firebrand Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) isn’t endorsing Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) or anyone else in the Republican primary for Sen. John Cornyn’s Senate seat.“I didn’t know he was gonna run, and I have not – I didn’t endorse him,” Gohmert told the Daily Caller on Wednesday when asked about Stockman’s challenge to Cornyn. “I hadn’t planned on endorsing anybody in any office in the primary.”

Honey, when Louie Gohmert thinks you’re a nut, you need to go check yourself in somewhere before you gnaw off your hand or something.
