Newly elected Speaker of the House Mike Johnson is, as we’ve firmly established, an “abject lunatic.” He radiates a “he was such a quiet neighbor, I can’t believe they found a crawl space filled with severed human feet beneath his bedroom” energy. Even if he were the suavest, handsomest, most self-assured cock-of-the-walk motherfucker on Capitol Hill, he’d still be an abject lunatic since he believes dinosaurs stomped around on the deck of Noah’s ark, has a hard time keeping track of how many kids he actually raised, and earned his creationist clients millions in tax breaks even though he may not actually have a bank account, himself.
