Mike, 

My understanding ot the capsizing island comment is that this congressman does this. He deadpans all the time, often to make a point, but it doesn't always work. 

I saw a clip last night where he was talking to some helium issue, though I don't understand the issue yet. But in that same voice he said he was concerned that comedians wouldn't be able to get that helium to get those high squeaky voices that make people laugh.

The bigger point was that while they were discussing helium, cancer patients weren't getting treatment, children were getting kicked out of headstart, the elderly weren't getting their meals on wheels, people are being laid off, and more to come because of the sequester. But let's debate this helium issue. 

That's how I understand it anyway. It's a great sound clip, but when I saw other clips, I came to understand that this is just his method. I don't think it's effective, but I also don't think he truly worried about an island tipping.

Tim,

I assume that the following link must be an exception to the claim that Democrats almost never make unscientific claims.
