Okay, Louie, That Does It

We don't want little girl scientists, do we, Louie?
Okay, Louie, That Does It

Y’all, Louie Gohmert has fallen so low on the food chain that we’re going to have to start watering him once a week.

The House just passed a bill to authorize the National Science Foundation to use its entrepreneurial programs to recruit women. Only four congressvarmints voted against it. Louie, of course, was one of them, but he did have a reason. Not a good reason, mind you, but a reason.

Here ya go:

“We want to take time from our $19 trillion in debt to demand that the National Science Foundation discriminate based on gender. There may be some young boy [who] needs encouragement from a tough family situation, but this program is designed to discriminate against that young poverty-stricken boy and to encourage the girl. Forget the boy, encourage the girl,” Gohmert said.

Now what the national debt has to do with recruiting women into science is anybody’s guess and that’s because Louie is a man filled to brim with loose ends.

I guess Louie has a special place in his heart for “young poverty-stricken boys,” because, you know, Louie created them. Why, come to think of it, without Louie and his colleagues we probably wouldn’t even have half as many as we do now.
