Texas Tea Partiers have recently decided that Senator John Cornyn is not crazy enough to represent Texas alongside Sen. Ted Cruz.
Gohmert, for his part, has not said whether or not he intends to do so, though he has already picked up one high-profile endorsement.
Whether he likes it or not.
Today, on his radio program, Glenn Beck announced, not only his support for Gohmert to challenge Cornyn, but also his intent to camp out in front of Gohmert's house if that's what it takes to make him do it.
"Last night, I made up my mind," Beck declared. "I am going to camp outside of Louie Gohmert's house if I have to, and I mean it. I am going to be Louie Gohmert's worst nightmare until he says 'yes, I'm going to run for Senate."
Beck proceeded to call upon his listening audience to take over the various government institutions in their respective hometowns in order to "make sure there is not a single progressive that is running our towns, there's not a single progressive on our city councils, there's not a single progressive in our school boards ... Zero tolerance!"
Zero tolerance for progressives will be difficult, however, given that Beck's definition of "progressive" is incredibly fluid and is essentially applied to whatever he personally has a stick up his butt about at the moment.
If Louie Gohmert (Heaven help us) becomes a Senator and fails abysmally as such, Beck will inevitably slam him as just another progressive too. Which is exactly what happened to the last Republican from Texas Beck was a cheerleader for.
