Hank Johnson of Georgia quizzes the Admiral on whether adding an additional 5000 marines to Guam will cause the island to capsize. (In fairness to the Representative from Georgia, it is actually more like 25000 people when you include the marines families.)

My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize
Now saying this is one thing but I have to wonder about his staff. Did they prepare him for it? Did anyone on his staff realize that he thinks that islands float or do they all agree that it is a serious concern.
and remember, this guy was elected.
