Texas State Representative, Leo Berman, you have joined the hallowed ranks of Congressman Louie Gohmert and your colleague Debbie Riddle: You have been utterly humiliated on CNN.
Berman, as we reported earlier, has introduced a "birther" bill in the Lege, demanding that no candidate can get a Texan's vote for president without proving they were born in America.
CNN's Anderson Cooper had Berman on last night and, well, demolished him.
It's almost painful to watch. On the other hand, it's highly entertaining to watch. Especially when Berman says he does "extensive reading" on the subject.
