GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert Goes Off on John McCain: He’s ‘Supported al-Qaeda’
by Josh Feldman | 11:36 pm, October 11th, 2013 

The Republican party is currently in the middle of a civil war of sorts, between moderate Republicans leery of tactics like defunding Obamacare and tea party conservatives sticking to their guns, crystallized by Louie Gohmert saying at the Values Voters Summit that John McCain “supported al-Qaeda.”

Gohmert took a swipe at his Senate colleague, who has been highly critical of Republicans pushing for Obamacare defunding, even suggesting2 they should be held “accountable” for lying to the GOP. That didn’t sit too well with Gohmert.

Be fair. McCain would know.
