America's Dumbest Congressmen

Radar Online has posted a new feature article by Holly Martins entitled "America's Dumbest Congressmen", subtitled "The 10 biggest fools on the Hill". The list is:

10. Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY) "...referring on the stump to the tragic terror attacks of November 11, 2001".

9. Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) "Kennedy was stumped when radio callers asked him for the location of his campaign headquarters."

8. Sen. Conrad Burns (R-MT) "He then wrote a public letter to governor Brian Schweitzer requesting that he declare a state of emergency. Schweitzer had done so 45 days earlier."

7. Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) "McKinney fought back by proudly producing a survey that ranked her as the 277th most effective legislator in the House. In fact the survey, by, placed her at 408."

6. Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-OH) "...using her first-ever floor speech to paint Rep. John Murtha, a decorated Marine Corps vet, as a coward, provoking a chorus of jeers and calls for her expulsion"

5. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) "After convening a Democratic press event at a gas station to publicize high oil prices and accuse Bush and Cheney of being too cozy with the oil industry, California's junior senator 'hopped into a waiting Chrysler (18 MPG),' noted the Washington Post, 'even though her Senate office was only a block away.'"

4. Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-AZ) "Alone among Congress members, though, Hayworth has refused to return any of the tainted funds, offering only this rationale: the donors don't want the money back."

3. Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) "In 2001, he took to the Senate floor to announce that Israel was justified in whatever treatment it handed out to Palestinians because, after all, God had promised the Jews the land they occupied."

2. Rep. Donald Young (R-AK) "...the congressman lecturing on government waste was the very same man who, years later, would be responsible for Alaska's fabled 'Bridge to Nowhere', a $233 million project constructed entirely of pork."

1. Rep. Katherine Harris (R-FL) "If dumb Congress members were the X-Men, Harris would be their Wolverine—a mutant possessing fearsome skills, the product of a demented government experiment gone horribly wrong."
