There have been a lot of really stupid members of the esteemed House of Representatives and the United States Senate. I'm talking real morons here -- not just people who are dumb because they disagree with me and I'm always right. In fact, there are quite a few before Todd Akin  who have promoted the Magical Vagina Power theory that says women who are raped can't get pregnant. Jezebel has a handy-dandy guide  here.
(The guide also notes the insanity of distinguishing "legitimate rape" from ... what? Sorta, kinda rape? Is that like being a little bit pregnant -- which might be what happens from a little bit of rape? Seriously?)
Of course, Rep. Steven King thinks teenagers can't get pregnant, either .
There's a nice list here of the ten dumbest members of Congress , but a lot of that's political: Rand Paul bellieves a lot of stupid things, but he's not dumb. Not like Akin.
Counterpunch gave the honor to Rick Santorum, a "vacuous boob." 
Esquire lists the worst members of Congress , but they aren't all dumb. Some are just, you know, crooks, liars, and sleazeballs.
Daily Kos likes Louis Gohmert for the Stupidist Person in Congress award.
We could go on -- and all of these lists are current. Go back a few years and you'll find plenty more.
So help me out here -- is Akin the dumbest Congressman ever? (There have no doubt been dumb Congresswomen, but I think in this category the guys have it.) Who else belongs on the list?
