Of the 535 members of the House and Senate, who would you say is the dumbest and least informed member?

My vote is for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez... I thought about Hank Johnson and the whole Guam capsizing thing, but I'm guessing he has some kind of brain damage so I'll give him a pass. But AOC is actually moving the Democrats to the left with her idiotic proposals that have no basis in reality. While she is attracting a lot of uninformed young people who haven't been subjected to the real economic realities, I think she is likely to wake up more informed people on the fence and drive them away from the Democrats.

If anyone would like to put up a challenger for the DPC award, I'd love to joust statement vs statement with someone who has a more deserving candidate. If you can't find anyone dumb enough in this congress, I'll even let you go back to any past members (but it would be nice if you found someone still breathing). I'll understand if nobody wants to play considering the difficulty in finding a worthy opponent for my ringer.

While I would rank AOC up there for being dumb, because she's either a willing accomplice or a clueless useful idiot working with the Justice Dems and Sunshine Movement (as well as suspicious payments to a spouse, questionable circumstances around her election, and her bullheadedness on her Green new Deal), I have fewer problems with a representative being ignorant than I do for them actively subverting their Constitutional duties, and aiding and abetting our foreign enemies. <cough Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Dana Rohrabacher, Devin Nunes, Lindsay Graham, Rand Paul, Richard Shelby, Steve Daines, John Thune, John Kennedy, Jerry Moran, John Hoeven, and Kay Granger cough>

I would agree with most of those, but not sure why Nunes and Paul are in that list of vipers.

I prefer to think of Comrade Cortes as a Useful Idiot. Rand Paul? I think he is one of the more ethical members in the Senate. The nation would be better with more of him. But people want different things from government. Some just want to be left alone, and others want a full fledged nanny state like Bernie.

Because both have sold out to Russia. Nunes was Chairman of the HPSCI and not only failed to do his duty to be a check and balance on the Executive Branch conducting suspicious acts, but actively blocked requests by Democrats on the committee and shared info with Trump that he wasn't supposed to.

Nunes buried evidence on Russian meddling to protect Trump. I know because I’m on the committee

Is Devin Nunes in Trouble with Mueller?

Go ahead and Google "rand paul visit to russia" and see what you get. Personally, I think this Vanity Fair article covered it quite well. Lots of good links embedded within as well.
Rand Paul Is Trump’s Perfect Russia Stooge
by Tina Nguyen
August 7, 2018 6:13 pm

On Monday, weeks after Paul made an impassioned speech on the Senate floor in support of Trump’s Helsinki summit—“The hatred for the president is so intense that partisans would rather risk war than give diplomacy a chance”—the Kentucky senator visited Moscow on a private trip to strengthen relations between Russia and the U.S., a matter he called “in­cred­ibly important,” according to The Washington Post. (The U.S. Embassy in Moscow told the Post that Paul was not on an official diplomatic trip, and was traveling privately with a group.) Paul’s Russian jaunt reportedly included a visit with former Russian ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak, who U.S. intelligence suggests is a spy, and whose undisclosed meetings with Jeff Sessions and Michael Flynn led indirectly to Robert Mueller’s probe into the Trump campaign.

At the tour’s conclusion, Paul released a statement saying he was “pleased” to announce that the contact with Russia would continue: “We agreed and we invited members of the Foreign Affairs Committee of Russia to come to the U.S. to meet with us in the U.S., in Washington,” he said. For their part, Russian politicians reportedly have a laundry list of topics to discuss with Paul, including nonproliferation, sanctions, and alleged Russian spy Maria Butina. According to Russian media, State Duma foreign-affairs committee head Leonid Slutsky asked Paul about Butina’s “early release,” adding, “We hope and expect that our colleagues will conduct the necessary consultations with Washington, and tomorrow we can consult about a road map and the plan of actions [on Butina’s case].”

Interesting. By those standards, Schaffer’s is a Russian spy and half of congress also is because they’ve made trips to Russia. This is ridiculous and I sincerely hope that if the truth actually comes out, some of you dyed in the wool Trump haters will actually recognize that you’ve been deceived.
