Louie Gohmert Is Still Two Bricks Shy Of A Load

God closes one door for Michelle Bachmann and opens three to Louie Gohmert.

CORRECTION: The quote was mistakenly attributed to Louie Gohmert. It was made by Rep. Ed Orcutt of Washington state.

James Carville, of course.

“God closes one door for Michelle Bachmann and opens three to Louie Gohmert.”

And then yesterday, to make it so, Louie says

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.

In fact, 11 of the 12 sections of the bridge are still standing.

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.
