Maybe we can start with the Democratic congressman who insisted an island would tip over if we put more troops on it.... Anymore from the left? I could come up with thousands of insane drool from the left.

The man was and is an idiot, obviously elected by morons.

What's next on your snivel list?

Leave it to Bard to find a 2010 quote, taken out of context, to try to take everyone's mind off the towering stupidity of Michelle Bachman. Here's the rebuttal--and the name of the Congressman:

Quote:
"I was using a metaphor to say that with the addition of 8,000 Marines and their dependents -- an additional 80,000 people during peak construction to the port on the tiny island with a population of 180,000 -- could be a tipping point which would adversely affect the island's fragile ecosystem and overburden its already overstressed infrastructure."

Maybe so, but Admiral Willard responded to the question with the utmost sincerity. His answer to Rep. Johnson's concerns over Guam capsizing like a lily pad playing host to an obese frog (our words)...

"We don't anticipate that. The Guam population, I think, currently about 175,000, and again, with 8,000 marines and their families, it's an addition of about 25,000 more into the population."
We're inclined to give Rep. Johnson the benefit of the doubt, but many Web searchers aren't so sure. After news of the bizarre exchange hit the Internet, online lookups for "hank johnson guam" and "guam sinking" both roared to life. The odd comment and clarification have also proven irresistible fodder for talk radio hosts, notes Atlanta Journal Constitution writer Jim Galloway.


Old talk radio hosts don't die, they just recycle canards.

Perhaps the empathy challenged on the right are happy about this:

One less bowl of cereal a week for his boy, one less sandwich a week for himself. That's what Friday's cut to national food stamp allotments means to Lionel Hill, but the math equation for lost meals is bound to get worse in the coming months....the only debate in Congress over ... food stamps--is how much further to slash it...


Meanwhile, subsidies for pig agriculture and pig oil continue...

I hadn't seen this one before:

Quote:
As the second day of the federal shutdown comes to an end, hardline elements within the Republican Party have made it clear that they will not budge until their demands are met. But what exactly are their demands? Republican House member Marlin Stutzman, for one, has no idea.

“We’re not going to be disrespected,” said Congressman Stutzman during an interview with the Washington Examiner on Tuesday. “We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.”

Boy, that is evidence of not merely no ideas about what government does--but no ideas at all.
