Ridiculous! Politician Hank Johnson Thinks Guam Will Tip-Over

by Jon Pinney on April 1, 2010

This is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen!!!  No wonder our country is struggling so much.  With politicians like Hank Johnson (Democratic Congressman from Georgia’s 4th Congressional District) making the laws, they are bound to be super destructive to our nation.

On his website (I will not link to it… he doesn’t even deserve my visit from earlier), he said:  “The subtle humor of this obviously metaphorical reference to a ship capsizing illustrated my concern about the impact of the planned military buildup on this small tropical island.”

Wow.  Which one of your paid writers wrote that for you?  If your speaking skills compare at all to your writing ability, then there’s no way you came up with that intelligent comment about your obviously inane and ridiculous comments about Guam capsizing.

Sorry, but I cannot give this a pass.

Normally I don’t care when politicians prove how stupid they are.  But with major legislation going through congress on a weekly basis (or so it seems), I can’t just sit by and let people screw over the nation I love, when they obviously aren’t bright enough to understand the effects of the legislation they are passing.

Next time you’re gonna ask a question, it might be a good idea to have your professional speech writers review it beforehand.

Hank Johnson, today you receive my award for Most Ridiculous Politician!   Wait, was this an April Fools joke?  (I bet he wishes it was).

Jon, forget the speech writers, lets just start electing people with true intellect and actually say what they think instead of dancing all over the place worried about saying something they shouldn’t.

That was unbearable! I had to talk myself into listening to the entire thing, it was PAINFUL what was he even trying to say? He sounded like a moron. Even if he truly meant the island couldn’t support more people, he didn’t even know anything about the island AT ALL to make those assumptions- especially when he started talking about the ENVIRONMENT and GLOBAL WARMING! Think (or read your packet) before speaking, dude!

Sean i totally agree… I wish money wasn’t such a factor when it came to politics… It’s easy to convince an unconcerned majority that your guy is the best when you have enough resources to paint it that way.

I must add that someone did tell me on Facebook that Hank Johnson has some type of speech or mental disorder. I don’t know if it’s true or not, but I thought I would throw it out there.

This commentary was not meant to be a personal attack on Hank Johnson himself. It was the result of my frustration with many of the politicians in our country. He just happened to present a performance worthy of ridicule and I happened to see it.
