Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) says that his bald head is liberating.

On Monday, KFXK asked the Texas Republican if he ever worried that some of his over-the-top comments got too much attention after Roll Call ranked him as number one on its list of the “Most Quotable Congress members in the U.S.”

“I know since 1960 television became so important that we’re not going to have another bald headed president, so I don’t worry about that,” Gohmert explained. “And a lot of guys really have in the back of their mind ‘well I don’t want to say something that will hurt my chances of becoming president’— and I don’t have to worry about that so I can just call them like I see them.”

KFXK barely scratched the surface with the following video of some of Gohmert’s more memorable quotes. Read more of his infamous rantings here.
