Louie Gohmert, Fellow Hordesman?
More: Sen. Kirk Asks Holder if He Spied on Congress; Holder Says He Can't Answer That In An Open Forum

Representative Louis Gohmert read a quote on the Congressional floor, I'm told.

So the Congressional Record now contains this (approximately):

"As the blogger Ace of Spades said, 'I guess we all have an Obamaphone now.'"

I couldn't have done it without you guys. Well, I probably could have. But I wouldn't have wanted to.

Wrong Answer: Why this is nothing at all like Watergate!!!


Note how this question is phrased: Not "did you spy on Congressmen" but rather "Did you breach the unassailable core of the Constitution, that the Executive and Legislature shall be coequal branches, and for one to gain undue leverage over the other should be a tyranny."

Now, he didn't say it like that, but that's what he's getting at.
