Republicans just can't seem to stop themselves from flinging about juvenile insults at every turn, can they? Anyone who looks like this guy, ought to keep his mouth shut about the way anyone else looks. Someone ought to tell wingnut "terror babies" Louie Gohmert that beauty is only skin deep, but that ugliness of his goes all the way to the bone.

Republican Congressman Insults Nancy Pelosi’s Appearance: ‘There’s No Facelift With John Boehner’:

An outspoken Republican congressman castigated House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi’s looks during a radio interview Friday.

Speaking with guest host Larry O’Connor on the Dennis Miller Show, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) argued that House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) was functionally equivalent to Pelosi because both held one-on-one backroom negotiations with the president. Gohmert then went on to deride Pelosi’s appearance: “Well, let’s give him credit. There’s no facelift with John Boehner.”

O’CONNOR: So basically John Boehner became Nancy Pelosi without the charm?

GOHMERT: For the last two years. Well, let’s give him credit. There’s no facelift with John Boehner. He is who he is.

O’CONNOR: Oh!

As the author at Think Progress noted, it's not the only outlandish statement to come out of Gohmert's mouth. As we've documented here as well, the list is quite long.
