Cory Booker: I Drove to Hawaii from New Jersey

March 11, 2014 - 4:34 PM

Well, the Democratic climate change slumber party has come and gone, but not after this memorable moment from New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, who said he drove to Hawaii as a teenager.

"I just do want to say that right after I turned 17 and got my New Jersey driver's license, one of the earliest places I drove was a trip - the only trip I have ever taken was to Hawaii," said Booker.

Yes, I'm sure you already know this: You can't drive to Hawaii.

Granted, this speech about climate change was made around 3am this morning, so mistakes like this happen.  At the same time, a Senate slumber party would be more meaningful if it dealt with issues like the debt, deficit, tax reform, immigration, or health care.  But, this is Washington D.C., where logic stops at the shore of the Potomac - which, by the way, has yet to dry up due to the ravages of global warming.
