Letter: Democrats say odd things too

In Friday's paper, Harvey Rabinowitz lamented in a letter to the editor that, "Nobody asked me, but why do so many Republicans deny basic facts?" He then goes on to cite some specific examples. To be fair I thought I'd offer a few more.

Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) is worried about Guam. "My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize."

Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Texas) asked a NASA official if the Mars Pathfinder mission could take pictures of the American flag planted on the moon.

Former Vice President Al Gore (D) claimed to invent the internet.

While encouraging support for the stimulus package, former Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stated that "every month that we do not have an economic recovery package 500 million Americans lose their jobs."

During his victory speech the night he won the Democratic presidential primary Barack Obama said, "[T]his was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal ..."

Just saying.
