What an insipid list.
It left off Joe Biden, Ted Kennedy, that guy Jim(?)Moran, Nancy Pelosi, Patty Murray, Steny Hoyer, Henry Waxman and the all time stupidest and most repellant Charles Schumer(unfortunately my senator).
As for dumb republicans there is always Lincoln Chafee, Olympia Snow and John McCain and how could they leave off Foley.
BTW I believe Inhof is correct about Global Warming"the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people" is probably about correct except for all the other environmental hoaxes-- Remember the "Ozone Hole"?
Although the reference to the congress as a "CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES" (with out attribution to the wonderful book by that name) is spot on.
How could the list of Congress-cretins have missed Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.)? I agree Jim Moran (D.-Va.) needs to be on that list. A chronic embarrassment to Northern Virginia, but the yellow dog Democrat gubmint workers in the district will pull the lever for him until the end of time. He once punched out an 8-year-old who he accused of trying to car-jack him.
On the Senate side, Mark Dayton (D-Minn.) should at least win an honorable mention. Spot-on about Boxer.
The list does skew toward the right, but lets face it, there are more Republicans IN congress. It all makes perfect sense statistically. Perhaps next year the list will be overwhelmingly Democratic.
3: Yeah, right ... perhaps next year.
The Democrats get off way too easy.
There is no way McKinney and the Kennedy scion can be excluded from the list, so they werent. To go after important stupid Democrats would be too risky.
Mr. F, are you suggesting that someone writing an article about the 10 dumbest contressmen is afraid to OFFEND someone? Still, I am wondering why they left off that guy who kept his bribe money in a freezer. Id have swapped him out for Boxer.
That guy...? How can you forget the name of a man who shares 2 out of 3 with William Jefferson Clinton?
How did they forget Bob Ney, Duke Cunningham, and Tom Delay?
