Tip over and capsize

Posted by Richard on April 1, 2010

Rep. Hank Johnson (SD-GA) took over Cynthia McKinney's seat, and he seems to be a worthy successor to that moonbat. At a House Armed Services Committee meeting last Friday considering a troop increase on Guam, Johnson expressed his concern about adding 8000 troops and their families to the island:

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. 

I appreciate The Hill making sure readers are educated on the nature of islands. Extremely unlikely, indeed. 

Here's the video, and it really is must-see TV:

    I tuned in to your blog this morning to see if you had a post about the island issue. I thought you might! The comment is surreal.
