Photos That Make the Rude Pundit Want to Slam His Head into a Marble Statue (Updated with More Statue Fun):

That's King Cracker himself, Rep. Louis Gohmert of Texas, giving constituents a tour of the U.S. Capitol. One can imagine the history lesson Gohmert is offering, all about how GodJesus made America the greatest fuckin' land in the history of everything, with lots of factoids about rugged individualism and how the guv'mint gets in the way of all the stupid shit that people like Gohmert want to do. It's what Gohmert and other members of the House are doing instead of passing a fucking continuing resolution and ending the fucking shutdown, which has stopped the tours of the Capitol.

One might imagine that the fellow Gohmert is standing beneath would want to crush that idiot shitkicker's skull with his marble ass. That's John Burke, the Progressive Era governor of North Dakota. Yeah, see, Burke believed big time in the government's role in everyone's life. Under his leadership in the early 20th century, North Dakota ended child labor, expanded the state income tax, offered health care to the poor, and prohibited lobbying of individual members of the legislature. He was a liberal's liberal.

In other words, Louis Gohmert isn't fit to be teabagged by John Burke's scrotum.

Update: The good Charles Pierce informed the Rude Pundit of another interesting part of the photo there. That guy on the right that looks like he's getting out of his chair to kick Gohmert's ass? That's Fighting Bob La Follette. Google that name. That tough son of a bitch makes Bernie Sanders look conservative. He'd've pimp-slapped Gohmert all over the statuary hall.
