Bachmann, King and Gohmert in Egypt

The three dumbest people in Congress — Michele Bachmann, Steve King and Louis Gohmert — went to Egypt last week and held a bizarre press conference. The Daily Show had a lot of fun with that in a sketch starring Samantha Bee, David Cross and Bob Odenkirk.

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    At least we know Bachmann, Gohmert, and King weren’t in any danger from terrorists. Not if the terrorists really hate America.

    The funniest part of Samantha Bee saying she’s an American from the United States of America is that she’s Canadian.

    Shouldn’t the president be allowed to kill them on purely humanitarian grounds? I am seriously surprised they didn’t start a war right then and there.

    So there are three of the most ridiculous members of our government in Egypt, talking about how awesome America is while adding backhanded compliments. Thus anti-american sentiment is further inflamed as some of the more intelligent radicals see that all american style freedoms allow mental subnormals to steer the country toward whatever shiny object catches their attention. This sentiment further emboldens radicals to fight even harder, encouraging more american military action to quell riots and so-forth.

    I see Bachmann is playing the long game.

    Area Man “Shouldn’t the president be allowed to kill them on purely humanitarian grounds?”

    That’s awfully harsh. It’s just press for Tim Burton’s new film, a reimagining of the Three Stooges.

    “I am seriously surprised they didn’t start a war right then and there.”

    Why? Anyone who saw that would assume that America already lost.

    Did they fly commercial or does the government keep a clown car just for this bunch?

    ArtK,

    They were treated as accompanied minors on the plane.

    I hear that those three are auditioning to be SNLs newest incarnation of Tarzan. Tonto, and Frankenstien.

    Modus, don’t be silly. Those three don’t even add up to a single Stooge. It’s amazing they haven’t blown themselves up yet, or poisoned themselves cleaning the bathroom.

    Are we sure one of them wasn’t Sacha Baron Cohen?

    So how about next we send Senators McCain and Cruz to Syria. Chuck Norris and Steven Seagal can go along too, just in case.

    I can’t believe no one has said this yet: please pick up one of the shiny new internets that have escaped Modus.

    The really interesting untold story here is how they all got together. Is there some level of self-awareness about who they actually are that each is embracing?
