During Wednesday's Planned Parenthood fetal harvesting hearing held by the House Judiciary Committee, Johnson went after National Right to Life General Counsel James Bopp for “want[ing] this committee to accept your opinions about some edited videos.”
Johnson appeared to be about to say more about Bopp, but he seemed to lose his train of thought. After a moment of mumbling, he called the hearing “a show trial.”
And then came the sweet moment of awesomeness, via Rep. Trent Franks, R-AZ: “Just for my clarity — has the gentleman seen all the unedited videos himself?”
Johnson's response took me into gales of laughter: “No, I have not. I've not even seen the edited videos.”
I suppose if you're going to be totally ignorant, you might as well admit it. Perhaps, though, you can do it from your couch, not as a Member of Congress making policy for the rest of us.
