America’s Dumbest Congressmen

posted by on October 17 at 10:05 AM

There’s been a lot of talk this campaign season about Congressman Dave Reichert and whether he’s a sharp pencil or not.

So Reichert’s campaign will no doubt be relieved to hear that he didn’t make this list.

If you're going to talk about other people being dumb you might want to spell "relieved" correctly.

Well, in all honesty, all on that list did something, however dumb. Has Reichert done anything more then read dumb party-line voting memos?

He's not the brightest bulb in the drawer, that's for sure.

But at least he didn't make the Washington Post deathwatch like Alaskan Mike McGavick did for lying in public and being outed by Republicans for doing so - which happened today.

Isn't it "brightest bulb in the ceiling," or "sharpest knife in the drawer?"

@Fixo: I think Ronk was just being witty. And isn't it chandelier, not ceiling?

lol@Erostratus It's just a matter of time before the WASL includes a question about "Buttfucking!"

But reading this list made my blood pressure spike.
