Rep. Hank Johnson (GA 4th U.S. Congressional Dist)

This man recently questioned a Naval Officer about expanding the base in Guam.  Nothing surprising there, except that the Congressman from GA was seriously curious if increasing the population would cause the island to capsize.  Imagine being on the receiving end of something so ridiculous.

Guam island remarks: During a House Armed Services Committee hearing in March 2010 concerning the U.S. military installation on the island of Guam, Johnson said to Admiral Robert F. Willard, Commander of U.S. Pacific Command, “My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.” to which Admiral Willard replied, “We don’t anticipate that.”
