Oh Louie, It’s Tempting

Louie Gohmert made a promise.

He says that if the Congress will treat the Iran deal as a treaty, requiring it to have a 2/3rds vote, he will will resign his seat and not run again.Of course, it would not pass if there’s a 2/3rds vote requirement. That’s the whole deal.Louie’s overinflated view of himself comes into play on this offer.

“I’ll give them the only thing I have that they want,” Gohmert said in a phone interview with KLTV 7. “And that’s me not to run for Congress again.”

Louie, Honey, they do not care abut you. You’re a gnat in a den of lions. But, you’re a gnat who makes threats, which is kinda adorable.

“If they continue this course,” Gohmert said, “I will be the biggest pain in the neck, and other places, of the Republican leadership, until we get leadership that will follow the Constitution.”

Well, yeah, they’ll buy some bug spray and get by.So, the way I see it, Louie needs to double down here: treat it as a treaty OR strap his goofy butt to the first nuke fired at Iran. If he could get Ted Cruz and Donald Trump to make the same promise, it would certainly be tempting.
