Oh, my, there's goes the Texas Intellectual Rocket again. No, not Rick Perry. The real Rocket Man, Republican Representative Louie Gohmert aka The Goober. (Louie has several nick-names.)

This time The Goob offers a simple equation to prove the existence of his personal god -- the one shared by legions of believers.

In The Goob's own words -- actually, quoting a Christian "entertainer" -- "Think about it, no matter how smart they think they are, an atheist has to admit that he believes the equation: nobody plus nothing equals everything."

"How embarrassing for an intellectual to have to say, 'Yeah, I believe that,' Gohmert said, "Nobody plus nothing equals everything."

Well.

How does one respond to such disfiguring logic? One can't, really. One can only scratch one's head and marvel at whatever substance is in Texas' drinking water (fracking fluid?) that produces such a bumper crop of half-wits who populate the state's political system.

The Goob was addressing yet another "prayer rally" in DC last Wednesday when he offered his latest insight regarding "god."

At the event's close, he got an enthusiastic round of applause from the rallyers when he added (according to Huffington Post) "You couldn't get everything unless there was something that was the creator of everything and that's the Lord we know."

The Post added, "Gohmert did not elaborate on how he leapt from something to nothing to everything to the "Lord we know" rather than to, say, a Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Gohmert also neglected to explain who would have created the Lord he knows, or whether the Lord created Himself before He existed.

I only mention this latest Louie Gohmert spasm because everything else in the "news" is dark, bloody, violent and hideously scary. The Goob is the only fun thing happening.
