    I don’t know if anyone else has said it but my opinion is – Hank Johnson is a mental midget…..
    And, I don’t care if it is politically incorrect. There we go!

    How about the I word…. Imbecile or idiot and they can be used interchangeable.

      How about the “N” word … as in Nitwit?

    Noticed that Congressman Hank Johnson was speaking in a primarily empty room with only that Democrat from Illinois, Jan something and that broad who was transcribing. I respectfully suggest that Mr. Johnson is just a small person – especially in mind!

    “… I came in to do a special order …”?

    Is that like “do baseball”?

    When did “midget” become an offensive word?

    How the word “midget” can be considered derogatory is totally beyond my understanding. If I was a midget I would prefer to be called that over the term “little person,” or “abnormally small” – especially NOT “dwarf.” It must be the effect of PC persons insisting on changing the language, making words in common usage offensive, but for what reason? To me, it appears to create class consciousness – divisiveness – greater than what existed before the PCs came along.

    This idiot could have saved a lot of wasted breath if he just stated the fact that he is a clueless clown that has no idea what he is apologizing for. He and the Schakowsky that he is talking to should have gotten themselves a cozy booth somewhere and had a private conversation because if there is even anyone else in their chamber, I doubt they have any idea what the two are talking about.

    Can you say IDIOT!!?? Or is that mental midget? I guess the residents of the 4th District of Georgia are once again “proud” of their “representative”. Or maybe those that elected him can translate what he said.

    This N word Hank just shows how stupid and racist he is because he is the N word. If you are going to allow words to hold you back from growing into a descent human-being. Well you might as well just stay in bed with your covers over your head!

  • galtj

    Is this a Saturday night live skit?

  • SumerianMan

    How the Hell does someone this fing stupid get elected to one of the most important positions in our country?, not to mention even find his way home! Oh wait!, that’s right!, he’s black!, and everyone knows blacks only vote for blacks no matter how stupid, or incompetent, or racist, they may happen to be. This is just a open example of just how screwed this country is, the rest of the incompetents just learned enough to keep their mouths shut publicly thanks to his example, but their every bit as fing stupid!

  • sneemdream

    What an utter moron.

  • sneemdream

    Is there a more repulsive “person” in gov’t…anywhere?

  • ARMYOF69

    Every time I see one of these idiots, I realize how many millions of stupid voters we have in our country.

  • Free Speaker

    Pathetic. Probably the most ignorant Representative in Congress.

  • captdot

    He’s an idiot! He always means to be offensive.

  • captdot

    Isn’t it more offensive to call them “abnormally small”? Abnormal is not sensitive!!

  • Baf

    Does Hank Johnson have a High School Diploma? If so, we must seek out the school and ban them from interacting with other human beings

  • tommyboy

    Is this obama’s other brother?

  • John Beam

    The best description of Hank Johnson’s mental ability would be the “r-word.”

  • Ariviste

    How many little people would have to be on an island for it to turn over?

    • johnnywoods

      Twice as many as it takes with normal sized people:)

  • HongryHawg

    The “speech” should have been midget-sized. Instead, it went on and on and on to no apparent destination.

  • Alreadyonawatchlist

    Was this a Saturday Night Live satire/skit…surely this was not a Congressman conducting a. meaningful governmental service?!

  • sue

    isnt this the same numbnut who thought that the island of Guam would tip over withincrease of population

  • 2War Abn Vet

    During the past couple of centuries there have been many idiotic things said by Congressmen but … no, let me amend that, … there have been many idiotic Congressmen, but Hank Johnson really
    stands out.

    That’s the fool that wants to ban or get rid of the 2nd amendment. They are all creeps.

  • Luzmark1

    He is so sweet, the abnormally, unusually small people appreciate that so much. Now we just need to work on his union crushing right wingers mentallity.

    How this idiot got his job is beyond me! Can’t he just apoligize for using an inappropiate word nd be done with it. He is right in the fact that he used it out of ignorance. The more he talks the more he keeps shoving his foot in his mouth further!

  • LLinLa

    Rep. Johnson, we accept your apology. It was heartfelt. And we on the Conservative side of the aisle have always fully realized that stupid people sometimes say the stupidest things but we don’t hold grudges. Now that one you made about Guam tilting over . . . now that was even stupider . . . we’ll let this one slide . . .

  • johnnywoods

    I wonder if this clown knows that he is an ignoramus?

  • djw663

    This guy is the mental “M” that he refers to. And I think the real thing he is, is called retarded which means mental capacity below average nothing more!
