    Has there ever been a less intelligent Senator than Diane Feinstein?

    Clearly, this woman has a lower IQ than any third grader.

    Other than Carolyn Mosely Braun, I can't think of one! Feinstein is awful!

    This woman is obviously on medication that causes her to lose touch with the real world.  If she honestly believes that, then she should give up her own weapons and have her bodyguards stand down.  I wonder how long she would last.

    I think the person of low IQ would be the one who doesn't recognize this as satire.

      Junkseller, that is a Feinstein quote....the senator is not in the satire business, she's in the global governance business.

    I agree that she is one of the worst senators--but not because of that apocryphal statement. I don't care about guns either way.

    Sheila Jackson Lee comes to mind as one of the top three dumbest in congress right next to that idiot that thought Guam was going to tip over

      Feinstein is in the senate.

      That is why I specified "in congress" rather than just the senate. But if you want the senate I vote for Babs "don't call me ma'am" Boxer.

    This discussion cannot be complete without Mark Twain's famous observation:

    "Suppose you are an idiot. And suppose that you are a Congressman. But I repeat myself"

    But in Feinstein's case, the phrase "IQ of a turnip" comes to mind. And it's not my intention to insult turnips.

    Ronald Reagan, and on the basis of interviews I've seen of US senators and presidents, there are many more.

      On the basis of your response, I'd say you are definitely part of the problem.

      Oh, why's that then, because I have a diferent view than you.

      Mick doesn't live in this country and still has a better knowledge than most goofballs on here. Imagine that the "movie guy" likes Ronnie.

      Well, Mick's own countryman said it best - "If you're under 30 and Conservative, you have no heart.  If you're over 30 and liberal, you have no brain."  By your assertion, Tom, Mick must be under 30 which would definitely indicate a lack of wisdom.

      Not that is any of your business, Bernie, I'm 65 and have been a socialist all my life. You shouldn't set too much store by what others say. You have no idea of my wisdom except what you put together from nonsense smart arse quouotes.

    You'd have to change the way your 'politicians' are chosen, although we can't exactly brag with some of the specimens (and women) we've seen in our latest crop.
    What qualifies someone in the States to becoming senators? I think there's some element of religious naivete that creeps in somewhere. I am guessing the quotation is something she dreamed up herself. Obviously religion comes into her argument. There's a spiritual 'uniqueness' there you'd only get in the States. Whereas I wouldn't make a carte blanche statement that we haven't got anybody that 'soft-headed' (we have our moments) but by and large you're looking at a more secular society here (the exceptions being the Roman Catholic, Moslem, Judaic and Evangelical communities - there's quite a few, but still no majority).

      Alan, I'm sure her religion is Zionism...aka, global governance.

      Zionists, aka Militant Jews, aren't as dimwitted as that. Their feet are well and truly on the ground, set for take off without the aid of a plane! No, this is good old-fashioned blue-eyed evangelism, I've seen it often enough to avoid it.

    Well, from personal contact I can tell you that the stupidest person in the congress is Greg Meeks.  I knew him as a young Asst DA in the 80's.  To watch him in action was so bad you actually felt bad for him.  He was actually a nice guy.  Just the most incompetent person on two feet.

    Yes...Senator Todd Akin who had the audacity to utter the words "legitimate rape" and to claim that women's bodies have special powers to prevent pregnancy during a sexual assault.
