The RP’s Breaking News: The Politics of Practical Jokes

Rep. Gohmert in a less interesting moment.

Well, you can’t fault him for not having a sense of humor. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has introduced a prank jobs bill that consists solely of repealing the corporate income tax. The catch? Like President Obama’s jobs bill, it is called the American Jobs Act of 2011. The President’s bill has yet to be introduced, owing to protest from both sides of the aisle, and will now have to be given a different name. Gohmert, known as a Tea Party provacateur, is considered one of the chamber’s more fiery conservatives. [Slate]
