Who Are The Craziest And Most Venal House Republicans Of All?


Sorry, these were the well-behaved ones yesterday. Meet the real nuts below

The House Republican caucus is such a mad house of extremism and frightening ignorance, how can you know which members are the craziest and most dangerous of all?Well, of course, some never shut their mouths and never miss an opportunity to reach out and broadcast their psychosis for their brainwashed fans watching Fox, many even more out of their minds than the congressmen seeking their approval. But some are lurkers and some are new and still too unrecognizable even for the crackpot hosts on Hate Talk Radio and Fox.

I mean most everyone already knows as much as they need to about national embarrassments like Paul Broun (R-Pit of Hell), Virginia Foxx (R-NC), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), and militia loon/domestic terrorist/OK City bombing suspect Steve Stockman (R-TX). And, sure enough, they were among the 27 Republicans who distinguished themselves Monday as the only Members of the House to vote against Lois Capps' H.R. 225, National Pediatric Research Network Act of 2013, amending the Public Health Service Act to provide for a National Pediatric Research Network for to pediatric rare diseases.

But what about the newbies and the quiet-but-deadly freaks coiled up like rattle snakes waiting to attack? It's bills like this one-- widely considered non-controversial-- where the real crazy comes to the fore, with yelling and screaming and rending of garments in the name of "religious liberty" and bizarre conspiracy theories and black helicopters. Here's where you'll meet gratuitous kooks like Florida freshmen Trey Radel, a Hate Talk Radio host, and Ted Yoho, who insists Americans have a right to heavy duty military equipment in case the U.S. Army decides to go all tyrannical and… take away our guns or something. It's almost unimaginable that voters could take a look at these people and elect them to represent them. This is the full list of the 27 Republicans who voted in favor of childhood diseases Monday:
Justin Amash (R-MI)
Jim Bridenstine (R-OK)
Paul Broun (R-GA)
Mike Conaway (R-TX)
Tom Cotton (R-AR)
Jeff Duncan (R-SC)
Virginia Foxx (R-NC)
Louie Gohmert (R-TX)
Tom Graves (R-GA)
Richard Hudson (R-NC)
Bill Huizenga (R-MI)
Raul Labrador (R-ID)
Cynthia Lummis (R-WY)
Kenny Marchant (R-TX)
Tom Massie (R-KY)
Tom McClintock (R-CA)
Dana plays dress-up w/ Taliban
Markwayne Mullin (R-OK)
Randy Neugebauer (R-TX)
Ted Poe (R-TX)
Trey Radel (R-FL)
Reid Ribble (R-WI)
Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA)
Steve Stockman (R-TX)
Marlin Stutzman (R-IN)
Randy Weber (R-TX)
Rob Woodall (R-GA)
Ted Yoho (R-FL)
Yep, it's bills like this where the real crazy finds a home. But if you're confused that there's no Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) or Mo Brooks (R-AL) on the list, relax. Neither was in town for the vote Monday.
