There is only so much silliness that I can read before I have to break down and call a moron a moron….this time it is the loud mouth Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas…..
He is all butt hurt because the Capital bureaucracy told him he cannot BBQ his “world famous” ribs (his claim not mine)……
Congress last week finally turned to something genuinely important, when Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas blistered the Architect of the Capitol, the caretaker of the government’s buildings on Capitol Hill, for interfering with the preparation of his barbecued ribs.
Getting in the way of authentic barbecue is a crime for which there is no forgiveness. It’s a crime almost as heinous as serving fraudulent barbecue, of which there is, alas, no shortage.
Mr. Gohmert represents a district in East Texas which should give him an understanding of the real thing. When the wind is up and blowing from the east, hickory smoke from Arkansas and Louisiana sometimes reaches Longview, Gladewater and even Gun Barrel City. The deeper a hungry man travels into Texas, however, the greater the risk of ordering barbecue and getting smoked beef, which can be delicious but is not, strictly speaking, barbecue. Only the noble pig, after spending 24 to 36 hours in the smoke house, is the stuff of authentic barbecue.
He went running to Paul Ryan with the bottom lip sticking out to make the “bad man” let him burn some meat….
This is why our Congress is about as worthless as tits on a bull……they pick their fights over stupid shit that has NOTHING to do with governing this country.
Here is an idea…..since Congress only works about 150 days a year then let him burn his meat back home on his own time…
This is why this country is so screwed up….we elect screaming morons to run the country…..if he, Gohmert, wants to be a “chef” then go on TV or open a restaurant….if not then let pros do the work of burning meat and he stick to the art of governing….if he knows how (to me…that is debatable)…..
