Texas Congressman Steve Stockman has been a headline machine over the last few months.
In March he shared his favorite thing about our little blue planet. It wasn’t the ocean, a scenic mountain overlook, or even some exotic predator. Stockman’s tastes are much too refined for that. Instead? “The best thing about the Earth is if you poke holes in it oil and gas come out.” Of course it is. Forget all of that life and nature stuff. Nothing beats some good ol’ dino fuel.
In April, Stockman again made headlines when he rolled pro-life and pro-2nd amendment arguments into one bumper sticker of awesomeness. The sticker said “If babies had guns they wouldn’t be aborted.” Because nothing gets a political base fired up like imagining baby Rambo blasting his way out of the womb.
Today, Stockman announced he was hosting a giveaway. Cool, right? Maybe the winner will get to meet Governor Rick Perry or Texas A&M Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. Nope. Instead, they’ll get a (cue Bob Barker voice) braaaand new Bushmaster AR-15! Huge props to the first pregnant woman to enter her baby into the competition.
Hey, if this is the kind of stuff that gets Stockman reelected, who can fault him for keepin' on keepin' on?
