"...but not for me"

Louie Gohmert one of several Republican Congress persons in the running for dumbest asshole alive has been pretty busy the last couple years.

He has called for the impeaching of...

1.  President Obama for advocating an assault weapons ban.
2.  Supreme Court Justice Elaine Kagan over health care reform.
3.  Every Democrat born or dead should be impeached over Benghazi.

So Louie is a bit of a none-trick pony.

I'm sure he is respectful of the law for himself though.
Shortly after 11 p.m. on March 13, officers wrote Rep. Louie Gohmert a citation for parking his black Ford SUV in a spot reserved for National Park Service vehicles, according to a Park Police report obtained by POLITICO.

But Gohmert wasn’t having it: He told the Park Police that his congressional parking placard allows him to park in that spot, and he’s on the committee that oversees the agency.

Gohmert took the ticket off his windshield and placed it on a police car along with his business card with a written message: “Oversight of Park Service is my job! Natural Resources Thus the Congressional Plate in window.”
He was “rude and irate,” one officer reported. Another wrote that Gohmert was “ranting.”
I'm sure it's all a plot of those dastardly liberals.

I live in DC.

There are places to park at that hour of night within a block of the Memorial. So What was he doing at the Lincoln Memorial one hour before midnight?

I'm guessing a Fanny Fox repeat or a Congressional page. There's more to this story. Good thing we have a tenacious and curious press to find out!

For me, Lance Mannion made the definitive explication of this:
in which he opines (this is just a snippit)

[When those of the right break] the law or when---as is more likely, because it's true, most of them are honest and diligent citizens---one of their kind breaks the law, they tend not to see what's been done as a breaking of the law. They don't believe they or people like them can be criminals.

"Criminals are others. Criminals are part of the great NOT US. And since we are not criminals, by definition, we cannot commit crimes."

Actions that look to the rest of us very much like crimes, because they are, they see as mistakes, misunderstandings, follies, personal failures of nerve, strength, or thought that ought to be condemned but forgiven and never prosecuted."
