Syria Nuke Comment a Joke

Congressman Sam Johnson (R-Texas) stated that his comments made at a church pancake breakfast on Feb. 19th about wanting to drop a nuclear bomb on Syria were a joke. Johnson originally said:

“Syria is the problem. Syria is where those weapons of mass destruction are, in my view. You know, I can fly an F-15, put two nukes on ’em and I’ll make one pass. We won’t have to worry about Syria anymore.”

But it was just a joke! Whew.

That makes it so much better. I mean, I know that at my church we always talk about dropping nukes on people — even on entire nations — but it’s always in jest. The public needs to understand that. In actuality, it’s a little-known tradition at many church pancake breakfasts to make lighthearted wisecracks about the slaughtering of millions of people. The flippancy of apocalyptic nuclear hellfire jokes, all washed down with delicious blueberry pancakes and maple syrup, well, that’s my kind of fellowship.

I like my pancakes nice and hot…

  • Just an observation, Matt. Liberals I’ve found can MAKE jokes, but don’t like to see their sacred cows gored. I’m sure there are humorless people of every political stripe, but generally I’ve found conservatives to be a bit less insecure and therefore less threatened by a joke at their expense.


  • Dave–conservatives can take jokes and libs can’t? You never come up short in finding ways to divide. Kudos!

    The Congressman needs to read up on “knowing your audience” before he gives his next speech…

  • At least they have a sense of humor, unlike liberals who can’t recognize a joke when they hear one, living in a humorless darkness which no light can penetrate.

    Republicans from Texas, they’re so funny! I’m glad they have such an empathic nature and respect for human life!
