Freshman Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., bristled at the idea that tea party-influenced newcomers are sheep-like ideologues willing to risk default.
Past glory: Gowdy attacks unions
in a committee hearing.
"We're not a bunch of knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing Neanderthals," Gowdy said. "We're interested in answering what we perceive to be the mandate, which is to stop the spending and change the way Washington handles money."
Gowdy said he was leaning against Boehner's proposal.
Actually, you are a knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing Neanderthal. You are just too crass and insensitive to know it; blinded by respect afforded you that you do not deserve. You wear the mantle of Congressman, and for that you are treated respectfully, but you have not a grain of that office's dignity in your benighted being. You never will. Peace.
P.S. My apologies to the Neanderthals for Mr. Gowdy's remark, and my repetition of it. The Neanderthals were nowhere near as stupid as Mr. Gowdy.
