Rep. Hank Johnson: ‘Imagine a World Without Balloons’

Posted by on Apr 26, 2013 at 2:13 pm

This is the lunatic who thought Guam could tip over. His constituents keep re-electing him.

“Imagine, Mr. Speaker, a world without balloons,” Johnson said, apparently in jest. “How can we make sure that the injustice of there being no helium for comedians to get that high-pitched voice that we all hold near and dear to our hearts.”

Johnson continued: “Too often lately, this body has sat deflated — not for lack of hot air, mind you. But seriously, ladies and gentlemen, unlike a noble element, this House has failed to act on Americans’ real concerns.”

Imagine a Congress without Hank Johnson. Where would we get our laughs? Don’t worry, though, folks, federal funding for helium will continue.

    Thank you for posting this. I had heard a clip of the offending colored representative on Rush Limbaugh’s show and I couldn’t believe it was real. I thought maybe it was a comedy piece.
