GOP Rep. Likes Idea Of Whacking Nancy Pelosi Golf Balls

 

The original story itself seemed so unusual that there was little surprise when Politico eventually retracted it: allegedly, Speaker of the House John Boehner was holding a golfing fundraiser, and they provided golf balls with Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s face on them to play with.† The story, according to Boehner’s public relations staff, had no truth.

But that doesn’t mean some Republicans don’t like the idea.

Republican Rep. Louis Gohmert, according to the Washington Post, was recently on a conservative talk radio show where the story popped up, and Gohmert said it would likely help his game, and wondered where he could find some for himself.

LARSON: My producer is from Ohio. He noticed that John Boehner was apparently using Nancy Pelosi golf balls at a recent fundraiser, and my producer wants to get a whole sleeve of those things. He thinks it might make him hit better.

GOHMERT: [laughs] Iíll bet you itíll put a little extra oomph in it. No kidding, yeah. Well, Iíll have to check on that. Iíll have to see where we get those.

Of course, putting a woman’s face on a gold ball isn’t a new concept.† Last year, a set of balls with the faces of Tiger Wood’s alleged mistresses were flying off the shelf, despite the obvious tastelessness of hitting objects that are supposed to represent women.† As lawyer Gloria Allred said at the time, “hitting a woman or an image of a woman is not a sport.Ē

So TC needs to learn to be professional or be removed. Funny thing is Boxer (D) and Feinstein (D) Carry conceiled weapons (with Permit) do they leave it in the lobby when they are on the Floor? But why are they so against the 2nd amendment? obviously they are a little more verbally controlled then coburn

I guess it goes to show one they shoot their mouth off or carry a gun neither which is right by democratic party rules

They can't fix a problem until they get past the bickering!

But the problem is that this continues,DA. Now we have Tom Coburn joking about how lucky it is he can't carry a gun on the Senate floor. I'd be just as disaproving if a Democrat had said this.

I missed a few other things:
The problems in this country are not the democrats or the republicans it is the inability to Balance, to actually read the legislation before voting on it, and not using critical thought processes to anylize it and not looking for unintended consequences of there actions. These politicions are firing guns into the air and then going oh ... i guess it was an unintended consequence i killed my neighbor I guess we'll amend the bill. If it fails then they start the blame game if its Bush's fault then why the dem controll the house and senate, If it's Obama's fault republican controll the house. there will alwayss be the blame game. people need to be open minded and stop makinf decisions just cuz my fin party said so.

Hey Rob No I do not miss the point that violence is not good. but think about if it were a man on the golf ball the artical never would have been written. The author writes to incite! there will always be some stupid loose cannon making threats and committing violence. Yes gomert is an idiot. But think about this Glenn wrote "All Republicans hate Pelosi because she is effective and they fear the truth may take hold." My commit had nothing to do with the violence or gabby it was how intelligent is a person when they say lets runs with it and see what happens. It is this type of stupidity that sets these loose cannons off. Glenn like most people on this site make generic commits about "all" inciting hate and distributing it themselves. the problems in this country are not the democrats or the republicans it is the inability to Balance.

You miss the point,DA.in saying we "should fear people like Nancy Pelosi",that point being there really are people ready to committ violence against members of Congress,who may see this as encouragement to do so. Or have you forgotten the shooting of Gabby Giffords,which took seven lives?

@Glenn What smart people whether republicans or democrat should fear is people like Polosi... when they stand as speaker of the house and say we need to buy into this obamacare plan when she had not even read it. then she said lets go with it and see what happens. She is a sheep! she sounds strong when she believes in something but wait how can you feel so strong when she don't even know whats in it. she is a puppit!
