    Rethug Arrogance Exposed - again

    Rep. Louie Gohmert, Republican—naturally—and all-around nutcase, got a ticket for parking in a spot reserved for National Park Service vehicles. And he didn't like it.
    Gohmert took the ticket off his windshield and placed it on a police car along with his business card with a message written: “Oversight of Park Service is my job! Natural Resources Thus the Congressional Plate in window.”
    He was “rude and irate,” one officer reported. Another wrote that Gohmert was “ranting.”

    “I was issued a ticket and I am a congressman and parked my vehicle in the NPS parking only because I have a Congress placard, see,” Gohmert told one officer, according to the report. “I am going to a meeting on the Hill and I am the one who oversees the National Park Services Natural Resources.”

    • "And he didn't like it."

      Apparently the Libocrits can't stomach the messiah's arraogance either after they finally produced a budget. Albeit they are following in his footsteps of fiscal incompetence...

      "Last Friday, the Senate approved a non-binding budget amendment to withhold the pay of top White House officials until Obama's budget is submitted. The amendment was proposed by Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), and no Democrats rose to defend the president.

      The House passed a budget cutting $5.7 trillion in spending and balancing in 10 years last week with no Democratic votes. The Senate passed a budget with only Democratic support that never balances and raises taxes by $1 trillion"

    • What the law says is:
      ... that members of Congress may park their cars "in any available curb space in the District of Columbia" when it is being used "on official business."
      He was in town for dinner with family. And it was in a reserved spot at the Lincoln Memorial. And he's an #$%$. And given that it was a $25 ticket, cheap.
