Speechless

I've long believe Congress is full of idiots, but I never anticipated this sort of idiocy.  Be careful to note this congressman's fears concerning the island of Guam.

He was using figurative language wasn't he? As if to say, I am concerned about adding more people than the island can support ecologically. I still think he is an idiot but I don't think that he actually thinks that Guam is floating. Do you?

He claims it was a metaphor.

The Atlanta Journal and Constitution on the matter:

"Johnson’s office said the boss is simply a tremendous deadpan — and that he was using a facetious metaphor."

I hope you're right, but watching the video doesn't make me think he's speaking metaphorically.
