(National Review) Speaking on the House floor on Thursday, Loony Liberal Lefty Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) stood up for some most important ‘victims’ of Congressional gridlock,  Children’s Birthday Parties and Comedians.

Discussing a bill to continue the federal government’s sales from the Natl Helium Reserve Johnson said, “…Imagine Mr Speaker, a world without balloons.”

Today, according to The Wall Street Journal the House of Representatives on a vote of 394-1 passed legislation to stop the closure of the Texas based Federal Helium Reserve which contains a 1/3 of the worlds helium supply.

The Federal Helium Reserve was created after World War 1 when we imagined a world where blimps would be the future of air travel and vital to our national security.

How is it that Rep Johnson was even elected to Congress in 2006 with such whacky, peculiar ideas and says them publicly?
