  1. When I read about this story I figured it was just a metaphor as he later said it was. Just the sort of knowing wise-guy type of thing I might say. I’m also not inclined to nitpick every little misstep some makes even if they’re someone I don’t relate to on a philosophical or political level. After watching this video, I’m not so sure about it now and can see why people are making hay over this. Wow. Sleep well tonight knowing our governance is in such capable hands.

  2. RL, I would buy his metaphor argument if he hadn’t said “capsize” and made the tipping motion. Sorry – at no time did he crack a smile or in any way indicate that he was speaking tongue in cheek.

  3. So Hank Johnson is the Democratic member for Georgia in the House of Representatives, right?

    If he is representative of the members of the house, it’s not only Guam that’s in danger of sinking.

  4. Right CT. Beyond the “capsize” and associated hand motion, was his incoherent rambling about the dimensions and area of the island beforehand, and coral reefs and the environment afterward.

    Don the Kiwi, I wouldn’t say he’s representative of all the House, but he’s not exactly the exception that proves the rule either. His party in particular is made up of some of the lamest “leaders” and some of the most calculating and autocratic demagogues you’ll find.
