I... I... I just have no words for how STUPID that sounded. The Island is going to tip over because of the over-population of Service Men & Women & their Families?!?

Is he SERIOUS!?!?!?

My brain hurt as soon as he said that.

OK, I've been wanting some reform in Congress for a while. Primarily a two term lifetime limit. Enough of these career politicians wasting space. Now I have a new Secondary; the second you prove you're a moron you're out before the day is over.

Apparently, I left just in time. Don't worry; I'm gonna try to never go back!

The best part is the follow-up clips on YouTube where it's obvious his handlers got ahold of him and explained geography and the definition of an island. Imagine his surprise when he found out islands don't float! The later interviews he tries to clarify that he was just making a joke and when asked why, if it was a joke, was he not laughing he explained that's just his sense of humor.

Gah - don't try to spin abject ignorance into something else - it's insulting. Oh, but someone that stupid doesn't understand having his intelligence insulted - never happened to him.

This one has been around for awhile, since the end of March. Apparently, some people thought it was an early April Fool's joke, however, he was so deadpan during the hearing and when questioned about it later, that who knows if he was serious or not.
