Republican Congressman Insults Nancy Pelosi’s Appearance: ‘There’s No Facelift With John Boehner’ (Audio at link)
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.
Gohmert is no stranger to outlandish statements. He co-sponsored a birther bill soon after President Obama took office, wants to shut down the entire federal government, and recently pushed a pet theory that President Obama helped oust ex-Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi “so that al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood could take over Libya.”
What do you expect from someone being interviewed by Dennis Miller?
There's no face lift, but there is a hideous drunk with an orange tan and lots and LOTS of embarrassing crying. What a pussy. boner is a giant an embarrassment to the country
Someone should make a video of all of boner's crying jags and send it to O'Connor
No, just a deep orange shellacking.
I know it's the norm now apparently, but it disgusts me when our elected officals say things like this.
This isn't high school! Act like an adult!
Gohmert's a fucking loon. He voted for departing Rep Allen "Higher Security Clearance Than The President" West for Speaker.
It was his way of "registering" his protest against Boehner. Dumb fuck. Pelosi should take one of her heels and spike his forehead with it.
He's a loon but he's right and it sounds like he hates Boehner. He's saying there's no difference between the two except that Boehner hasn't had facelifts like Nancy.
I read it, false equivalence troll at R15. You should have stopped at "he's a loon" because Louie Gohmert hasn't been right about a goddamned thing since Noah built a boat.
I don't give a fuck what you think of their politics, I'll assume it's another false equivalence. Let's just completely ignore the fact that you're an idiot who is unable to differentiate one policy from another.
It is a fact that Pelosi was a better and more effective Speaker than Boehner is or ever will be in his wildest dreams. Hell, she proved that just the other day when she successfully whipped her caucus while Boehner (who had recently been left holding his dick in his hand on the House floor) couldn't get his people to do a thing.
R16 is correct
Doesn't he have a pal named Goober?
Gee whiz. If you're going to make fun of somebody for her appearance, pick on Rosa DeLauro! She looks like Miss Gulch.
