Dan Patrick invents some scary stats, Louie Gohmert gets schooled and Bill Zedler spells out the tea party meme of the week in plain English.
Every Friday we will round up some of our favorite doozies, curveballs, gaffes, head scratchers, political glossolalia and goofball statements. Our only criteria is that the quote provokes a “WTF” reaction. TGI…WTF?
