Concerned that their side was "losing badly" on immigration reform, a trio of congressional hardliners appeared on Glenn Beck's Blaze TV program on Thursday to ask him to help their cause.
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), appearing alongside Reps. Steve King (R-Iowa) and Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), suggested that there was a visibility issue surrounding the ongoing debate over a reform package.
Now -- The Gadfly will obligingly confess that he himself is not the sharpest tool in the shed, and will further concede that he has a known penchant for dressing himself unintentionally funny and confusing his own acerbic wit for humor, however, seeing the Three Stooges of the GOP caucus running to Glenn "Still on that LSD trip from 1994" Beck begging for salvation, offers comfortable optimism to The Gadfly that his own piquant inanities pale in comparison to those of these law making (Ack!!) public "leaders."
The best analogy The Gadfly can proffer for the mirthful sight of Curly Gohmert, Larry Bachmann and Moe King asking Glenn Beck for help on a public policy issue is that of an individual who, for god knows whatever reason, finds themselves on fire and is running around madly begging for someone for assistance by asking to be doused with a barrel of kerosene. It is unhinged insanity in all of it's exquisite and macabre glory.
