Quoted: Rep. Hank Johnson's limp microphone joke

"For some reason this microphone goes limp all the time. Maybe with some Viagra we can get it to..."

-- Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.), confronting a sagging microphone during his moment to speak at Wednesday's House Judiciary Committee hearing on Internet piracy of live sports broadcasts. Surely he knew he was on C-SPAN!

And the Washington Post is publicizing this because it's x-rated? Um, no...It's salacious? Um, no...It's terribly offensive? Um, no...It's in bad taste? Well, maybe. OK, I give up. Why is the Washington Post publicizing this? This is beneath the Daily Show; we're firmly in Jay Leno-stupid joke territory here. Raise your standards.

Calm down, everyone. Member of Congress made a funny joke in a setting where people don't usually make funny jokes. That's all.
