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. O’CONNOR: Oh! 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.”
