In one of my recent posts on Politicians in the News, I joked about Hank Johnson. I found out this morning that Hank is suffering from Hepatitis C and it has taken effect on his speach and thought patterns. Those who know him know that he has a quite dry sense of humor, and apparently when he made the comments on Guam “capsizing” he meant it as a metaphor for an overcrowding nation. Now, as much as I like finding humor in other peoples stupid comments, I will not be a part of making fun of someone because of an illness, thats just not my style. So, Hank, I formally appologise if I was insensitive to your condition. That being said, if this illness did not effect your speach or thought process, that really was a dumb comment, and it really was funny. Furthermore: If you are using your illness to cover up the fact that you said something stupid, and playing off the general populations emotions, well then, you have a whole other set of problems.
