Hank Johnson comes out firmly against the use of the word ‘midget.’

See how it takes for you to break down in hysterical laughter: Allahpundit lasted three minutes. I broke down at about 1:56, but then I had a glass of wine earlier.  Take it away, Hank Johnson:

To paraphrase Oscar Wilde, you would need to have to have a heart of stone not to laugh at that performance. And the hell of it is? …He’s still better than Cynthia McKinney.

PS: I assume that at some point somebody will come to try to give me a Stern Lecture on this post. I suggest that such people worry more about how they’re going to get rid of their new paladin, instead. Personally, it’s my cherished belief that if you have Hank Johnson coming out to defend your particular interest group then something has gone terribly wrong for you, somewhere, somehow.

  1. America’s greatest solons ponder the BIG issues at this important moment of our history.
    The Democrats no longer have Cynthia McKinney, but they still have Maxine Waters and Patty Murray for sheer raw intelligence and now Elizabeth Warren for integrity.

  2. I am certain that more than I few of the people I have interacted with on various blogs wouldn’t see anything amusing or wrong with what the Congressman is saying. People are so knee-jerk defensive of democrats and the touchy/feely rationalizations that they are really pretty good at convincing themselves that the utterly stupid is really a valid and important point.

  3. I started breaking down at around 1:45, and that is without the savory numbness of Mr. Booze.

    On a side note, are those speeches always so empty? I mean, I don’t watch a lot of CSPAN, but it seems like no one was there except Johnson and some moderator…
