This dbag, Congressman Ted Poe (R-TX), is always entertaining to watch as he rants and rambles away on the House floor. My earliest memory of Poe was when living in Houston in 2004...he benefited from the GOP redistricting scheme, complements of Tom DeLay (who I'll blog about at a later date), that botched up Nick Lampson's old district and added tons of new, suburban and bigoted Republican voters. He had billboards all across the Bayou City attacking gay marriage and overall was and continues to be one big idiot.
Each speech he gives in Congress ends with the phrase "and that's just the way it is." What an innovative trademark! Though his usual rant on illegal immigrants, liberals, abortion and other societal problems was of no surprise to viewers, quoting and praising the founder of the KKK, Nathan Bedford Forrest, might have gone a little too far.
