RUSH: Now, I want to get something out of the way here. I got all kinds of people e-mailing me and sending me flashes here, ‘You gotta play Hank Johnson, you gotta play Hank Johnson.’ All right, I’ll play Hank Johnson. I’ll play the audio sound bite, but there’s something you gotta know here. Hank Johnson replaced Cynthia McKinney. Hank Johnson has hepatitis C. He’s had it for ten years. His liver, I’m told, is ravaged. He loses his train of thought in mid-sentence many times. The man simply is not all there because of hepatitis C. That’s a bad, bad, bad disease. But Pelosi keeps him on a committee, and she puts him out there where he can be embarrassed when actually this should not happen. This was last Thursday in the House Armed Services Committee during testimony about the 2011 defense budget request. Hank Johnson and Admiral Robert Willard, US Navy, have this exchange about Guam.
JOHNSON: This is a island that at its widest level is, what, 12 miles from shore to shore and at its smallest level — smallest location, it’s seven miles between one shore and the other. My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and — and capsize.
WILLARD: We don’t anticipate that.
RUSH: That was Admiral Robert Willard saying he doesn’t anticipate that Guam will become so overpopulated that it will tip over and capsize. So I wanted to play it for you, everybody says, ‘You gotta play Hank Johnson.’ Well, just remember, he’s not right, he’s critically ill, has been for quite a while.
