Rep. John Lewis’ Awesome Smackdown of Rep. Louie Gohmert’s Ridiculous Pro-DADT Speech

MSNBC’s Laurence O’Donnell, whose spiked ratings prove I’m not the only one falling in love with this guy, is not done harping on Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert’s disgusting attack on gay servicemembers. Gohmert, who previously made the case that keeping DADT will keep gays’ hormones in check, was appropriately countered by Georgia Democratic Rep. John Lewis, who told his colleagues, “Vote yes, because every American deserves the right to serve their country. … Vote yes, because it is the right thing to do.” As we know, more lawmakers agreed with Lewis.
