12. Issa isn't nuts

He's a mean spirited partisan hack but he lacks that looney fundamentalism needed to make him a contender.

13. Article: Michele Bachmann is Retiring, Leaving a Texan as Craziest in Congress



Michele Bachmann is Retiring, Leaving a Texan as Craziest in Congress

-snip-

Is it Rep. Louie Gohmert? He recently accused the Attorney General of siding with the Boston Bombers, claimed "radical Islamists" were posing as Hispanics and crossing the border, and said the Aurora shooting was a result of "ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs." Gohmert regularly goes on television and sounds about as aggressively ignorant as the worst stereotype of a Texan.

Or is it Rep. Steve Stockman? He recently brought up arming embryos with guns, said the Violence Against Women Act is bad because it is "helping the liberals," and compared the president to Saddam Hussein.

It could certainly be Sen. Ted Cruz. "Crazy Ted Cruz" has made McCarthy-ite accusations against Chuck Hagel, promoted paranoid fantasies about our government shutting down golf courses and building "hobbit homes," and spread deliberate Medicaid distortions. He is also at Michele Bachmann-levels of lying to the American people. Cruz also plays the role of Bachmann in the Senate, spewing nonsense and ideologically trying to derail any semblance of progress in America.

No matter who you think is the craziest, one thing is sure: Texans will have to endure routine embarrassment and misrepresentation in Congress for years to come. But if we organize, we can force these schmucks into early retirement just like Bachmann. There is light beyond this fog of craziness

14. Gohmert wins because he's just nuts.

Issa is just a mean SOB out to screw Obama and the other Democrats.
