During an appearance on the Today show, Bachmann suggested that the HPV vaccine could cause mental retardation. She has also intimated that there's a direct correlation between swine flu outbreaks and Democratic presidencies.

Finally, she has claimed that no study has ever shown that carbon dioxide is harmful to the environment — neglecting the hundreds of studies concluding just that.

But her worst stunt came last year, when she launched a McCarthyesque witch hunt to rid Washington of Muslim Brotherhood infiltrators. Her prime suspect was Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's top aide, Huma Abedin, whose only crime was having a foreign-sounding name.

But even if she were voted out tomorrow, Bachmann's legacy would live on: Roughly a third of this list is composed of frequent Bachmann co-conspirators. Not only is she their leader, but she's a role model too, the crazy North Star that guides them, even as she makes an ever-growing number of Americans question this whole experiment we call democracy.

I'm just amazed that Michael Burgess, congressman from Texas 26th district, wasn't mentioned.

Sheila Jackson Lee.  You left out her most famous Q,  asking at a Hearing on the NASA budget ...

"Can the Hubble Telescope see the US flag the Apollo astronauts left on the Moon?"

People like their own congressmen. Ted Cruz was elected by over 50% of the people and he's done a good job already. I would guess that his approval rating is pretty high here in Texas.

Rep. Maxine Waters of California, a 22-year House veteran and ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee, this week warned of "over 170 million jobs that could be lost."

Uh, that is more than all the jobs in America.

We're in real trouble.

Congress has always contained its fair share of pinheads and egomaniacs

Between this article and Schutze's about Dallas City Hall, I just want to run away! Somewhere far away -- New Zealand maybe.  It's like the entire country has lost it!

That caricature of Cruz looks a lot more like Al Gore.

The scariest thing about Paul Broun is that he's a DOCTOR.  If I had ever been one of his patients, I would be SO out of there.

Cruz is most definitely #1 weirdo and Commie chaser. What an embarassment!

How he got elected along with Gohmert, Cornyn Grayson and a couple more just shows you why Texas is the laughing stock of the country/world.
