Rep. Hank Johnson: Guam could tip over and capsize!


This will be an instant YouTube classic. Lauren Katlin is probably jumping for joy right now because someone else is about to take her place. That admiral deserves major credit for not busting out laughing. I know I could not have kept a straight face.

To be fair to Hank Johnson it should be known that Hepatitis C has ravaged his mind and body. Perhaps that is also why he joined the Raaaaacism Industrial Complex during the Joe Wilson dust up. Given how the disease might be affecting him, how come no one has asked if Johnson is truly capable of representing his constituents?  I think it is time to start asking folks.

Right Ideas:

Better question, how does he stay elected!

Christopher said...

Un fricking real!?!?

Gee, I didn't realize the gentleman was sick. I wouldn't have beat him up so bad on my website.

Rachel Ann said...

My mind refuses to accept that he meant that seriously...I just can't. I think he was trying to make a point about something and it just fell flat.

Actually I'm BEGGING that he couldn't have meant it.

When I first hear things like this, I think two things:

1) Damn, I hope he's not from Georgia. DOH! I guess he is, dammit!
2) Who would elect this idiot? Answer: The same knuckleheads that put Cynthia McKinney in Washington.

Then I cry, a little, to myself.

Raaaacism Industrial Complex... that's genius! May I use it?

I saw this yesterday, and it would have been hilarous, except for the fact that this idiot is serving in Congress, which made it very frightening instead.

Christopher:

Yep it's true. No April Fools.

Clifton B said...

Sirknob:

Yes he is sick and despite being sick he voted for a very complicated piece of legislation. Do you think for a second he understood or was capable of reading anything in that bill? Travesty.

Rachel Ann:

I know what you mean. It maybe funny to laugh at but the ramifications are not funny at all.

Clifton B said...

Jake G:

You have my sympathies.

Clifton B said...

Bastiat Fan:

Feel free to spread it around.

trinity:

It is frightening. Where I live there is a city councilwoman who is like 80 years old. She is steep in the Alzheimer and her fellow Democrat colleagues have to physically raise her hand to vote. This is what is running our nation.

EvMick said...

This is for real?

Assuming it is and not some April Fool's joke then this guy needs to be removed from office. He's not competent.

Angie Lee said...

When the president is incapable of performing his duties, there are clear guidelines established by the Constitution to deal with it.

Why is there not the same for members of congress?

When we push to repeal the 17th, we should replace it with just such language, to ensure our liberties are not being trampled upon... more than they already are.

Strom Thurmond, redux?

Clifton B said...

EvMick:

I too thought it was an April Fools joke, but nope he was quite serious. YIKES!

Clifton B said...

Angie Lee:

There should be a way to quickly replace or remove a House Rep. For some of the Rep. 2 year is still too long.

Clifton B said...

Janelle:

Could be!
