"Aiieee!" The doldrums of the past week Benghazi, IRS targeting Teabaggers, and seizure of AP phone records in search of a leak-source have driven Tom Tomorrow to imagine a future POTUS: the bat-guano-crazy Dumbo Congressman from Tyler, TX. Thanks to redistricting, Louis Gohmert easily (71.7% of the vote) won a 5th term in 2012. Hell, the reason the present administration doesn't want to discuss Benghazi is that the "consulate" was a CIA black-ops site. (Waterboarding, anyone?) The damn Teabaggers were trying to game the U.S. tax code for their nefarious purposes and the Lamestream Media portrays the loons as innocent victims of tyranny. Finally, the CIA foiled a terrorist attack originating in Yemen and the Associated Press (AP) ran a story identifying the Saudi citizen who was the CIA agent. (Does anyone have the number of a witness protection program?) And, today's 'toon from Tom Tomorrow envisions a future POTUS named Gohmert.
If this is (fair & balanced) craziness, so be it.
