    Rep. Hank Johnson: Guam could "tip over & capsize"

    Dear God, help us! Johnson was REALLY serious. Admiral Willard has my respect and admiration for showing such restraint and decorum in having to deal with such an idiotic question. I can't believe that a Congressman could be this stupid. On the video clip, does he sound to you like he's a bit stoned?


    Rep. Hank Johnson: Guam could 'tip over and capsize'
    March 31, 2010, 4:23 pm by Christina Wilkie

    Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) is afraid that the U.S. Territory of Guam is going to "tip over and capsize" due to overpopulation.

    Johnson expressed his worries during a House Armed Services Committee hearing on the defense budget Thursday.

    Addressing Adm. Robert Willard, who commands the Navy's Pacific Fleet, Johnson made a tippy motion with his hands and said sternly, "My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize."

    Willard paused and said: "We don't anticipate that."

    Like other islands, Guam is attached to the sea floor, which makes it extremely unlikely that it will tip over, even if there are lots and lots of people on it. Guam is 30 miles long and up to 9 miles wide in certain spots, with a population of 175,000 civilians. The military is proposing the addition of 8,000 U.S. servicemembers and their families.

    Reached for comment, a spokesman for Johnson said the lawmaker had visited Guam, and his concern was that the influx of military personnel would overwhelm the island's infrastructure and ecosystem.

    The comment comes 1:20 into the clip.

    LMFAO, that has got to be one of the stupidest things I have EVER heard someone say.

    That's it, I'm saying it, there needs to be an IQ MINIMUM to be in ANY political position.

    "I'm sorry <insert name>, millions of people depend on you and you don't qualify. I hear they are hiring down at the local McDonalds"




    Disclaimer: Yes I know that everyone that works at McDonalds isn't an idiot, but obviously it doesn't take someone of high intelligence to flip burgers. If you didn't already know this, guess which group your in?

    Hank Johnson is the best and the brightest of the democrats in Georgia's 4th congressional district. Keep in mind, he occupies the seat formerly held by Cynthia Moonbat McKinney.

    Greg, Your reply intrigued me, so I did an internet search for Cynthia McKinney. Wow...has the water somehow been contaminated with toxic waste in that part of Georgia? Guess lightning DOES strike twice in the same place!

    No problem! Something like this needs to be seen no matter what or how many forums it's in.
