There is absolutely no cure for STUPIDITY and Hank is a testament to that statement.
According to National Review Online, Hank Johnson “stood up for some of the most important victims of congressional gridlock: children’s birthday parties and comedians trying to make their voices high-pitched.” He was, in short, discussing a bill to continue the federal government’s sales from the National Helium Reserve. You read that correctly; helium.
Rep Hank Johnson gives a whole new meaning to affirmative action. I don’t blame him for being an idiot, but, instead, blame the scum who voted him in. Marion Barry was the worst mayor in the world, a crack addicted whore-monger who went to prison. A good black woman took his place, tried to do the right things and the citizens of DC tossed her over to return Barry to the mayor-ship.
In other words, the people love scum. They love criminal behavior in their leadership. This is why Hispanics are taking over as the new powerhouse minority.

He co-sponsored an additional 365 bills, 269 of which were put forth during 2011. Bills like H.R. 831, “honoring and recognizing David ‘Dave’ Warren Brubeck for his contributions in musical composition, jazz, and to the international community (he liked Lena Horne, too)” and H.R. 785, “condemning the discrimination, hate crimes, racism, bigotry, bullying and brutal violence perpetrated against Sikh-Americans, and all acts of vandalism against Sikh Gurdwaras in the United States.” These bills were, literally, chosen at random to illustrate the difference Johnson has made, in his elected capacity, to the welfare of his state and nation.
Johnson is just one case of Congressional buffoonery (Sheila Jackson Lee also springs to mind). The fact that there are no intelligence requirements for elected office is unconscionable. Worse still, such individuals keep getting re-elected by an equally dim and uncaring electorate. And Johnson’s like will keep cluttering up Congress as long as his constituents are no better.
