Needed: 30 Rethugs to vote for #SpeakerGohmert

Texas' dumbest Congresscritter, and possibly the nation's, Louie Gohmert, known here for obvious reasons as Gohmert Pyle (click that first link) is now challenging John Boehner to be Speaker of the House.

I say, in a riff on those immortal words of George W. Bush, "Bring him on!"

Those 30 Republicans noted in the header for this post?

Well, there's 188 Democrats in the new House. If they all will vote for Speaker Gohmert, as well, there's your 218 and he's in like Flynn!

Dems can then watch him embarrass the rest of the House GOP, as well as wrong-footing Mitch (the Turtle) McConnell, new Senate GOP leader, with an embarrassment of stupidity riches. (Yes, I used some form of "embarrass" twice in the same sentence; I'm writing at Gohmert Pyle level.)

So, Nancy Pelosi, do you have some counterinsurgency brains, or are you going to play this straight?
