This isn’t exactly earth-shattering news, but Representative Steve Stockman (R-TX) is a raging buffoon.
A Republican lawmaker said he’ll vote to authorize military action against Syria if President Obama returns his Nobel Peace Prize.
Freshman Tea Party Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) suggested the swap in a press statement Tuesday ahead of the president’s primetime address to sell strikes to a skeptical public. Stockman said Obama must answer 11 questions to gain his support – including whether the president is willing to return his 2009 prize.
Beyond the obvious, what makes this amazingly stupid is the fact that if you actually read or listen to the president’s Nobel acceptance speech, you will see it is not an isolationist peacenik speech.
But getting back to the obvious — saying I’ll vote for a resolution to attack another country if you give up your Nobel prize is like saying I’ll share the answers to the math quiz if you’ll pull my finger.
Steve Stockman is a walking fart joke.
