During a congressional hearing regarding whether or not to send more Marines to Guam, Georgia Congressman, Hank Johnson, was asking a lot of questions. Mostly on the size of the island, and just HOW big is it again? He then said that he was concerned that sending thousands of troops to Guam would cause the island to tip over.
“My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.”" (complete with hand gesture of said island flipping over)
Are you kidding me?
To the credit of Admiral Robert Willard, his only response to the congressman was that they did not anticipate that (Guam tipping over). I would have just asked the congressman if he was serious, all while laughing to keep from crying.
Yup, these are the people running the country. (sigh)
