    Yeah he appears to be a loon, might be senile. We have some scary people in congress, here's another one that sits in our House Of Representatives and is allowed to vote:

    Add them to the guy from Georgia who was worried about Guam tipping over into the Ocean and we have a real bunch of winners governing our country.

    Oh look, he apologized.

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100614/ap_on_re_us/us_congressman_video

    "I deeply and profoundly regret my reaction an I apologize to all involved," Rep. Bob Etheridge said in a statement. "No matter how intrusive and partisan our politics can become, this does not justify a poor response."

    Etheridge, a congressman in North Carolina since 1997, reiterated his apology at a hastily called news conference Monday afternoon.

    "The truth is I had a long day," he said. "I've had bad days many times. It's not a good crutch to lean on and I won't use that."


    I doubt the apology will save his job, however, at least come November.

    Well, i must say, Bobby certainly does posses remarkable wrist control for a drunk of his age. A little pressure with his right hand downward against the young paparazzi's hand would have secured a tight key lock causing the young mind, full of mush, to scream like a wild hyena at the smell of dead buffalo dung. Ripping and tearing of the radial ulnar capsule would have put that little freakin', future drive by media puke in his place for sure. Next time Bobby. Net time.

    But I just read an article which stated that Guam was indeed tipping over into the Ocean. Apparently it has to do with global warming. The rising ocean levels are causing water to rise up on one side of the island lifting the island to slowly tip over.

    What is taking so long for cap and trade to save us all!!

    Actually I read that he is favored to win in November dispite this event. LOL.

    I think Chicago style politics have infected the Democratic party. Perhaps he is taking lessons from Rahm Emanuel.

    Someone accosts you and sticks a camera directly into your face. And then they absolutely refuse to tell you who they are. How was Etheridge to know this guy wasn't about to act violently?

    Etheridge showed a great deal of restraint in not slugging the guy on the spot.

    The American people have gleefully voted for people who've done far worse things than scowl while demanding that a camera-man identify himself.

    if it was global warming, why are isn't the sea level rising up on ALL sides of all these islands purported to be at risk? (and all islands NOT purported to be at risk?)

    he didn't just scowl, he wrested him.

    is that a misdemeanor or a felony?
