America's Dumbest Congressmen

Radar Magazine ranks the 10 biggest fools on Capitol Hill...

This list of America's Dumbest Congressmen even includes 3 Democrats.

My favorite quote from #10 Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY)...
Bunning is a Hall of Fame pitcher who, during his eight years in office, has shown "little interest in legislation that doesn't concern baseball," writes Time magazine. And Kentucky doesn't even have a major-league baseball team.

And perhaps the most oddest quote from #3 Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK)...

And then there was the recent debate over the latest constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage, when Inhofe assured Senate colleagues of his own virility and that of his manly forbearers. "My wife and I have been married 47 years. We have 20 kids and grandkids. I'm really proud to say that in the recorded history of our family, we've never had a divorce or a homosexual relationship." It's the same flawless gene pool that produced a man who thinks our situation in Iraq is "nothing short of a miracle."

Finally, from #1 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.

Bunning only made # 10? We're talking about the guy who, up for reelection in '04, kept saying that his opponent looked like one of Saddam Hussein's sons! Alas! Our next chance to get rid of him isn't until 2010.
