And we're back to our friend Louie Gohmert. After having taken up Congress' time in the past introducing us to the idea of "Terror Babies", proposing that Congressmen should be packing heat wherever they are after the Gabby Gifford's incident, and most recently, dickishly proposing a vote to "reaffirm" the country's motto as "In God We Trust" after nobody was even protesting it, good old Louie was given the floor again this afternoon and he may have actually topped himself in the department of wasting everyone's time.
Now I haven't read Obama's healthcare bill and I would never claim to know very much about the intricacies of his plan at all but some of you have and do, so you might know what we're dealing with here. Basically, the plan at one point calls for an army of thousands of doctors and nurses that can be commissioned to serve in the case of a domestic catastrophe such as 9/11 or Katrina. The idea was first proposed under the Bush administration after 9/11. Well Louie seems to think that Obama has created his own private military (why this would be part of a healthcare plan nobody fucking knows) to be ready to serve at his disposal. So what Obama has done in Libya is a blatant attempt to use up all of our military resources in order to justify him calling upon his own army that he commissioned from the healthcare plan. No really...this is how Congress spent their time today.
By all means though...let's keep giving this whack-job a microphone and a podium. This is unquestionably a productive use of tax money.
