And he will continue to spout idiocy like this as he compares the battle to civil rights for minorities to the rights for endangered species. Because apparently, both annoy him. Referring to Democrats Steve Cohen and John Conyers:
GOHMERT: There is nobody in this chamber who is more appreciative than I am for the gentleman from Tennessee and my friend from Michigan standing up for the rights of race, religion, national religion of the Delta Smelt, the snail darter, various lizards, the lesser prairie chicken, the greater sage grouts and so many other insects who would want someone standing for their religion, their race, their national origin and I think that’s wonderful.
And yes, thanks to the magic of gerrymandering, he'll be able to say stuff like this for at least the rest of this decade and most likely the next. Awesome prospect, right?
