Jim Jordan is a street rat gnawing on flesh

It is not, however, illegal to threaten a congressman.

This man is Jim Jordan, Republican congressman from Ohio. I am watching him, as we speak, pester Hillary Clinton during the Benghazi hearings. I hate him. I mean, I really hate him. And it’s not because he’s Republican, or conservative, or a Tea Party member.

It’s because he’s a fucking gnat. It’s like listening to and watching a street rat gnaw at your toes. He interrupts incessantly, he’s disrespectful, he’s intrusive, he’s repetitive. He’s just an absolute asshole of a politician, and were I living in Ohio I’d be embarrassed to have him speaking on my behalf, and voting on my behalf.

I am not threatening Jim Jordan. But were he to appear at my front door, asking for a place to sleep or eat, I’d punch him in the face, and enjoy doing so.

Thank you.

    You hate him because he’s exactly that. A Republican.

    You can’t even admit to how great his questioning of her was? How he got her to admit she lied about this nonsense video being the cause?

      You can question someone effectively and professionally without being an asshole, which Jordan is (regardless of party affiliations). Trump’s era of obnoxious buffoonery normalizes assholey, rude, screaming behaviour of bullies like Jordan, unfortunately. Got nothing to do with being a dem or a republican – just speaks to civil discourse and decency in questioning.

    You hate him for being SMARTER than you and the rest of the DEMONcrats combined. KILLary LIED and is still covering up evidence COMMIE!

  • Dicky Neely

    Jim Jordan is an ass. That he is a Republican doesn’t change that. He is useless as a Congressman, 12 years in Congress and he has passed one bill, and that was some right wing, propagandistic fluff that he had nothing to do with composing. All he does is go on TV and lie, lie lie!
