Tipping point 

A United States Congressman in action.

OK, he might not understand that islands do not "tip over," but I'm sure he could explain the finer points in the just-enacted health care reform law.

I am extremely impressed with the admiral. Our generals and admirals must be the finest diplomats in the world to keep from breaking out in laughter when listening to some members of congress.

Aren't you afraid of being called out as a racist?

Just another example of how liberals are so much smarter than conservatives.

The sad thing is that this genius is probably one of the smarter democrats in DC.

I agree with AnthonyH.

I cycled between laughter, wincing, and crying for our country. But in retrospect I also had some emerging sympathy: the poor guy may have Alzheimer's disease.

Best wishes, Jim

This *really* bothers me. It bothers me that someone this ignorant is a U.S. Congressman. It bothers me that Clark College would abdicate their responsibility as an educator and as a trusted source of education credentials. It bothers me that the Texas Southern University's Thurgood Marshall School of Law can't detect or willfully ignores the absence of a basic education. It bothers me he was able to get a job as an Associate Magistrate Judge for ten years. And what bothers me most of all is that a majority of Georgia's Fourth Congressional District have no problem with this. So we *deserve* this ignoramus as our duly elected representative.

This quote from Will Rogers made me laugh, and it certainly is true: "This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer". I wonder what he would think of our politicians today?

Pyrus may feel a little better after learning this: Congressman Johnson won the seat by defeating Cynthia McKinney in a primary.

It is being reported that he suffers from Hep C which causes confusion and dementia-like symptoms, so some compassion might be in order.

Nevertheless, if his faculties are not in full then it is probably time for him to resign.

I just came across an explanation at neo-neocon.com. Worth reading. May make you feel better about the whole thing.

Best wishes,

Scratch my last comment. Neo-neocon's 'defense' of Johnson was an April 1st spoof, and I fell for it.

So I am back to me earlier comment.
