Promises, Promises

Good news, everyone!

Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has recently threatened to resign and await ‘nuclear holocaust’ if the Senate approves Obama's deal with Iran. Senate Republicans have just failed to invoke closure to block the treaty, which means it is getting approved. So, so long Louie!

Only probably not.

Unfortunately, conservatives are not, by and large, an honorable lot. They are given to swearing great, highly dramatic oaths only to not follow through. On the premise that waterboarding is not really torture, Fox News blowhard Sean Hannity said he would endure it for charity. It hasn't happened. Radio host Rush Limbaugh swore he would move to Costa Rica if Obamacare passed. He's still here. And NRA board member/artless draft dodger Ted Nugent swore he would either be dead or in jail if Obama got reelected. Alas, Mr. Nugent is neither. And all of these oafish oaths are several years old now.

I am really starting to not trust these guys anymore.

UPDATE - 09/29/15:

In a predictable yet unanticipated meta development, Sean Hannity has also said that the Iran deal will result in a holocaust. Except he means the Nazi kind rather than the nuclear kind.
