Hank Johnson, Taking On Water

Will somebody please draw up some sort of schematic or develop some sort of model which can be used to show this man the fundamental difference between an island and a canoe?

Yes, that’s Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson and, yes, he’s very concerned that if the United States Navy sends too many personnel to Guam, the entire island may capsize.  And, better yet, he actually sits on a congressional committee which gets to make important decisions with regard to military funding and movement.

If, this November, you’d like to give Congressman Johnson a permanent vacation from his congressional seat in the 4th District of Georgia–a vacation which he could spend, perhaps, learning more about what distinguishes watercraft from land masses–please take a good look at Liz Carter.  A little more than a week ago, our own John Feeny interviewed her.  For a link to that story, and to more information about her candidacy, click HERE.



  1. Steve Crown says:

    Georgia’s policy of encouraging the employment of the handicapped is laubable. However, in the case of employing those with governance in their job descriptions limiting that to PHYSICAL disabilities might produce a better outcome.

    What a Georgia peach that fool is; his brain is cobbler.

    Clean House 2010
    Kiss all there arses good riddance.

  3. Lilly says:

    What an idiot! I can see a few congresswomen (Boxer comes to mind) actually saying something like this and they help run our country? No wonder we’re in a world of hurt right now.

  4. Jeff Schreiber says:

    Now, I HAVE read that Congressman Johnson is ill. Apparently, it has something to do with liver issues and Hepatitis C and he’s not always in the best frame of mind.

    HOWEVER, that should be justification for retirement. Under no circumstances should be even be there.

  5. Boston Blackie says:

    If it were not so scary that this man is on the committee making military decisions, his comments would be hilarious – unbelievable!!

  6. Sturgeon General says:

    If he is ill, then he should be on disability, not governing us.

  7. GiveMeSanity says:

    Which is more insane, the comment itself made by Hank Johnson or the explanation Newsweek provides?


    Below the video reads:
    —Rep. Hank Johnson, during a House Armed Services Committee hearing on a budget request to relocate naval personnel to the island of Guam. Guam is 212 square miles with a population of 175,877 (2008 estimate). Later asked to clarify the remark, a spokesman for Johnson said he meant that population increases could lead to a “tipping point” destructive to the island’s overtaxed ecosystem.

    Yep. These people are leading out country. How marvelous!

  9. Look out carp says:

    There are so many worthless politicians in D.C. it is going to tip over into the Potomac river. Poor fish are used to pollution, but yikes, that would really shock em.

  10. Gail B. says:

    A wise man once said, “You can’t fix stupid.”

    Georgia’s Hank Johnson AND David Scott run neck and neck in the “Oh, God, NO!” department!

  11. Gail B. says:

    Vernon Jones,former CEO of Dekalb County, GA, is also running for Johnson’s seat, and he lost the reverse discrimination lawsuit against him last week. He makes Johnson look like a Sunday School teacher!

    (Vote for Liz Carter!)

  12. Tilli says:

    Just remember, he represents the same district that gave us Cynthia McKinney. That should put things in perspective.

    And no, I am not in his district, I get John Lewis, better, but only by 50 IQ points.
