145. Difference between Gomer and Gohmert

Folks have noticed similar appearance between Jim Nabors, who played Gomer Pyle on the Andy Griffith Show, and US Rep Louie Gohmert. The actual men are very different.

Jim Nabors was discovered by Andy Griffith to play Gomer Pyle, an “addlebrained” gas station attendant on the Andy Griffith Show. His spin-off show, Gomer Pyle USMC was also successful. His rich baritone voice, so unexpected from his roles, was amazing. For over 30 years he sung Back Home Again in Indiana at the Indianapolis 500.

On January 29, 2013 in Seattle, he married his partner of 38 years, Stan Cadwallader, a month after same-sex marriage became legal in Washington.

Louie Gohmert, plays a role remarkably similar to that of Gomer Pyle (not Jim Nabors), but set in the US House of Representatives. Check the Wikipedia article for just some of his bonehead comments.
