Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX): Demons Have Invaded The U.S. Capitol

At a Tea Party rally in Washington DC today, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) declared that demonic forces are behind the health care reform bill.
Speaking shortly after he riled up a crowd at Tuesday's Tea Party protest, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) declared that "demons" - yes, demons - have invaded the capital (and likely the souls of Democrats), forcing lawmakers to mislead the public about the content of the health care bill. "Well it would take a demon to be this dishonest about a bill," the Texas Republican told the Huffington Post. "If they would just read the bill, they would see what they are saying is dishonest." Asked to expand a bit more on what he meant, Gohmert stepped back a bit from a literal interpretation, though still floating the possibility that Democrats were possessed. "Well, somebody is making people be dishonest and it is a play on words, too," he said.
Good As You reminds us that it was Gohmert who repeatedly claimed that the Matthew Shepard Act protected pedophiles from prosecution, a ridiculous charge that was widely repeated across the wingnutosphere.
