    Who is the Dumbest CURRENT US Senator?

    I'm watching one of California's two bimbo's babble semi-coherently about the US Supreme Court.

    Is there a Senator dumber than Feinstein?

    I've listed a few of the worst idiots, feel free to name your favorite dumb Senator!

    Re: Who's the Dumbest Senator?

    Why did you have to mention CURRENT?...I have the Hall of Famer....

    This one's a given...Gary Hart...

    Hart officially declared his candidacy on April 17. Rumors began circulating nearly immediately that Hart was having an extramarital affair. In an interview that appeared in the New York Times in late April, Hart responded to the rumors by daring the press corps: "Follow me around. I don't care. I'm serious. If anybody wants to put a tail on me, go ahead. They'll be very bored." After an anonymous tip, two reporters from the Miami Herald took up Hart's challenge and observed an attractive young woman coming out of Hart's Washington, DC townhouse on the evening of May 2[1]. The Herald published the story on Sunday, May 3, and the scandal spread rapidly through the national media. Hart and his allies attacked the Herald for rushing the story into print, claiming that it had unfairly judged the situation without finding out the true facts. Hart claimed that the reporters had not watched both entrances to his home and could not have seen when the young woman entered and left the building. Hart was dogged with questions regarding his views on marital infidelity. In public, his wife Lee supported him, claiming the relationship with Rice was innocent. A poll of voters in New Hampshire for the New Hampshire Primary showed that Hart's support had dropped in half, from 32% to 17%, placing him suddenly ten points behind Massachusetts governor Michael Dukakis.

    On May 5, the Herald received a further tip that Hart had spent a night in Bimini on a sailboat called the Monkey Business with a woman who was not his wife. The Herald obtained photographs [2]. of Hart aboard the Monkey Business with then-29-year-old model Donna Rice, sitting in over-50 year-old Hart's lap. The photographs were subsequently published in the National Enquirer. On May 8, 1987, a week after the Donna Rice story broke, Hart dropped out of the race. At a press conference, he lashed out at the media, saying ""I said that I bend, but I don't break, and believe me, I'm not broken." A Gallup Poll found that nearly two-thirds (64%) of the U.S. respondents it surveyed thought the media treatment of Hart was "unfair." A little over half (53%) responded that marital infidelity had little to do with a president's ability to govern.

    In December of 1987, Hart returned to the race. He competed in the New Hampshire primary and received 4,888 votes, approximately 4%. He stayed in the race through mid-spring, making his best showing in Puerto Rico, where he received approximately 7.5% of the primary vote

    Jeez! Gimme a chance to polish the thing and set it up, will ya? LOL! Yeah, Hart was pretty dumb.

    But I only want current senators. Otherwise the poll will be neck and neck between Quayle and Gore.

    I'll check back later. Good night.

    Re: Who's the Dumbest Senator?

    Hey! How did it do that? I wrote the word "Current" in the title between the words "dumbest" and "senator"!

    If you could fix that, it'd be nice. I don't think I can.

    Re: Who's the Dumbest Senator?

    I see what happened. I wrote the title of the thread without the "current", then when I wrote the poll question I put in the word "current", so it's there, but not where I would like it to be. Oh, well. Not a big deal. Bedtime for me.

    Later.

    Re: Who is the Dumbest CURRENT US Senator?

    I think Rick Santorum clearly wins the gold medal on this, for many different reasons. The "man on dog" quote was probably my favorite. Honorable mentions go to Robert Byrd, Ted Stevens, and John Kerry.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Mod Note

    This thread is going to get ugly. The subject matter is basement fodder, so off it goes.
