Ten Who Should Not Be in Congress

by: KathyinBlacksburg

Thu Jan 03, 2013 at 21:30:30 PM EST

Now that the new Congress has been sworn in I thought I'd make a list of its worst members.

1. John Boehner.  He cries so often one has to wonder if its alcohol "speaking."  Read here too. Today he said he will not do any more negotiating with the President. Got news for him.  Obama doesn't need to talk to Boehner. But if Boehner won't do his job, stop his pay.
2. Eric Can't-or.  I don't have to tell you why. You know. A more cynical and pitiful excuse for a human being doesn't exist.
3. Michele Bachmann. In two words, lunatic liar. She just makes stuff up. It ought to be a crime to lie as often as she does.
4. Rep. Darrel Issa (R-CA). Investigate is his middle name. His invent-a-scandal office operates nonstop. His point is to try to bring the administration to a standstill. And he's a fine one to criticize anyone (snark). His efforts smack of abuse of power.
5. Joe Barton (R-TX). He apologized to BP for President Obama. Who will apologize for him?
6. Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-WI). He is nicknamed the dictator by other members of Congress. Enough said.
7. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI). He is so ignorant he still doesn't get that Ayn Rand has nothing to tell any one about economics. His so-called budget should be grounds for him to be ousted from office. He is so ruthless even Catholic bishops opposed his draconian policies which would hurt the poor. Paul Ryan's "budget" was a manifesto for discredited trickle down theory, which renders him worse than stupid.  He's an incompetent relic. He has no mastery of national issues. Too awful for Congress.  And that is saying a lot.
8. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) is a buffoon. If he compares the President to Hitler one more time he should have to write the history of WW2 on the chalkboard 1,000 time.  He should have been run out long ago. Read more here.
9. Sarah Palin buddy, extremist Tea Party hack Rep. Renee Elmers (R-NC). Representative is an oxymoron when used in her title.  She refuses to meet with constituents, debate her opponent, have town halls, or give interviews.  She is unresponsive to constituents.  Instead she meets with business leaders and says that is her job. She should be run out of the House.
10. Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC).  According to The Nation, he wanted to make weapons grade uranium easier to move around and thus endanger Americans... Small wonder. He's also one of the top 2% in Congress for donations from the nuclear industry. And he is the top recipient of pharmaceutical and health care products money.

A few more. (0.00 / 0)
1. Steve King: psychopath.
2. Morgan Griffith: Climate science denier, total corporate tool, the worst of the worst.
3. Peter King: Anti-Muslim bigot extraordinaire.
4. Pretty much anyone on this list.

And in the Senate (0.00 / 0)
*James Inhofe: Lead climate science denier on Congress, that's all I need to know.
*John "GET OFF MY LAWN!!!" McCain. He picked Sarah Palin to be a heartbeat away from being president. 'Nuff said.
*"Diaper Dave" Vitter
*Rand "Aqua Buddha" Paul - As crazy as his father? He's certainly off to a strong start in that regard.

Mostly Agree (0.00 / 0)
Although I'm not sure if I agree Richard Burr would be in the top ten. I was pleasantly surprised when he helped get "don't ask don't tell" repealed. He's obviously not ideal but I think there are a lot of worse GOP senators around.

If Given One Wish (0.00 / 0)
I'd like to see Cantor and Issa struck from this list, by virtue of being forced to resign due to the scandals that accompany such men. Could happen....

Per first comment: Morgan Griffith is my (gasp, gag) Man in Congress. You're right what you say, although in saying so it suggests he has independent agency, which he hasn't. He may as well be Cantor's doppelganger. That makes him doubly worthless.

Bill Howell's Tool (0.00 / 0)
In the House of Delegates Morgan Griffith was the wholly-owned tool of Bill Howell, obediently doing what the speaker told him to. Now, I guess he has become the prostitute of Eric Cantor. That is, when he's not whoring after the coal barons...

Sic Transit (0.00 / 0)
You said it, Elaine. It's hard to believe the District lost Rick Boucher to this...this whore. What goes around will come around, though, and I want to make certain this second term is all he gets. Flaccovento did well against him for an unrecognized name; next time he'll be better known, and then....Well, I've seen enough "I Miss Rick" stickers and buttons recently that maybe Rick will reconsider and whump him!
