#4: Louie Gohmert
Gohmert has long been one of the far right's most dependable lunatics, but he only really began to work towards household name recognition in August of 2010.
It was at this time, on "Anderson Cooper 360°", that Gohmert appeared to defend comments he had made earlier on the House floor regarding "terror babies," which he claimed an ex-FBI agent had told him about earlier that year in June.
Later, on Fox Business News, Gohmert claimed that he had instead heard of this from an airline passenger who claimed to have a relative in Hamas that in turn had a grandchild who was intentionally born in the United States.
Gohmert did not provide substantiation for either the ex-FBI agent's story or the airline passenger's story. The most he could provide when asked for it was another description, this time of so-called "birth tourism" packages in China, also without substantiation.
When asked several times by Cooper for the connection and any corroborating evidence, Gohmert responded "If you don't think this is evidence, you have to believe that the terrorists are more stupid than these enterprising people."
Gohmert later resurfaced in 2012 to blame the Aurora massacre on two things: The erosion of Judeo-Christian beliefs, and a lack of concealed carriers in the theater.
And it never occurred to him to think that these two ideas might contradict each other. Nowhere in Leviticus does God command that everyone should carry a magnum with them everywhere they go.
Gohmert was also one of five members of Congress to send letters to the various offices seeking investigations into the U.S. government's involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood.
These allegations were based on allegations that several staffers, including Huma Abedin, aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, had family members with connections to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Most recently, Gohmert displayed his sheer distaste for reality by saying of the principle of Sandy Hook Elementary: "I wish to God that she had had an M-4 in her office," demonstrating his adherence to the same video game mentality as Wayne LaPierre.
At this point, he might as well just come out and say that, like Ann Coulter, he's just an instigator who enjoys stirring the pot whenever possible. It's not like any of the people who voted for him don't know that already.
