Sometimes I wonder about the collective psyche of the American public. I seriously have questions for anyone who voted for Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Steven King (R-IA), or Michele Bachmann (R-MN). Because headlines like these – “Louie Gohmert Links Gay Marriage, Bestiality” – seem to be the norm for these folks.
I truly don’t get it. How can people vote for these total fringe whackos? I mean a dead houseplant would be more effective in Congress than people like Michele Bachmann. She, and now-defeated Allan West (R-FL), have both gone off about Democrats having “anti-American views”, and have called for McCarthy-esque witch hunts. It’s ridiculous.
So how do these people keep getting elected? At least Allan West was defeated in 2012; now we just need to get the other three whackos out of office.
