Meanwhile, the American people continue to populate the asylum with their votes.

The one “no” vote was from Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert.

Congress also reportedly opted to retain the word “idiot” in federal law.

Make of that what you will.

    Make sure you keep MORON in federal law.

    Too bad we can’t vote to strike ‘lunatics’ from Congress!

    All liberal lunatics have mental issues but all people with mental issues are not liberal lunatics.

    Once again Congress “solves a problem” by either changing a word or changing the meaning of a word.

  • Cold War Grunt

    Rep. Gohmert is the only one in the House that is apparently not a lunatic.

    Really, this is our tax dollars at work … Didn’t @SpinMeNot say he was going to build an asteroid magnet … wonder if he needs any help?

    So, “lunatic” out, “idiot” in. At least they left us one word to legally describe them all.

    I am SO glad that the country is in such great shape that the most important thing the government has to worry about is a word that dates back to Biblical times.

    Thank goodness they left “crazy bastards” alone.
