The Louie Gohmert photobomb of the century

Newly elected House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy stopped by the Faith & Freedom Coalition -- a gathering of social conservatives organized by Ralph Reed -- in Washington on Friday to deliver a speech and invite attendees up to Capitol Hill.  “We’re going to have the courage to lead but the wisdom to listen," McCarthy predicted.

But, his speech was -- to our mind -- overshadowed by the amazing picture above.   That's Reed on the left and McCarthy on the right -- and Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert's head in the middle.

Amazing.
