Let God Sort It Out

LET GOD SORT IT OUT….Congressman Sam Johnson explains his foreign policy views:

Speaking at a veterans? celebration at Suncreek United Methodist Church in Allen, Texas….Johnson said he told the president that night, ?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.?

He not only gave this advice directly to George Bush, but is so proud of it that he went right back home and started bragging about it to his constituents.

Did I mention that Johnson is an actual, living, breathing congressman? A Republican one?
