Our political history has numerous instances of very stupid politicians who either do or say some really stupid things. Stupid politicians are at least good for something, they entertain us and provide us a great source of comedy.
Consider the case of Senator William L. Scott (R-VA) who was named one of “Dumbest Congressman” by New Times Magazine in 1974. He promptly proved it by holding a press conference to deny he was one of the dumbest senators.
Some politicians just don't remember what their job is all about, like Nancy Pelosi speaking about ObamaCare saying, “But we have to pass the so that you can find out what is in it.” Its job of a member of Congress to read the bill and know what's in it before voting for it or against it.
Then there is probably the stupidest politician in the American history, a character names Byron Looper who challenged an incumbent state senator in Tennessee in 1998. Upon learning that state removes name of a dead candidate from the ballot, this genius came with the idea of murdering his opponent shortly before the election, thinking his name would be the only one left on the ballot and he would win the office by default. Looper was arrested for the murder, and later convicted in court, while the widow of the late state senator was elected to the seat on write-in votes.
This list includes some of the stupidest politicians that are currently in office, and have moved on to far higher office than was every possible for someone as stupid as Byron Looper.
