    The top Ten Most Ignorant American Politicians

    Over at The Daily Beast, they have compiled a list of the top ten most ignorant politicians. Using PolitiFact.com as a fact-checker, they counted up the number of statements made by US politicians that were deemed lies or inaccurate by Politifact.com, assigned them a score, and then ranked the politicians on iignorance by that score.

    The Results for Top Ten Most Ignorant Politicians

    10. Joe Biden: 10 True statements; 5 False statements; 3 Pants-On-Fire lies
    9. John Boehner: 14 True statements; 12 False statements; 0 Pants-On-Fire lies
    8. Mitch McConnell: 2 True statements; 3 False statements; 0 Pants-On-Fire lies
    7. Harry Reid: 2 True statements; 3 False statements; 0 Pants-On-Fire lies
    6. Nancy Pelosi: 1 True statements; 2 False statements; 1 Pants-On-Fire lies

    3. Howard Dean: 1 True statements; 3 False statements; 0 Pants-On-Fire lies

    I enjoy reading The Daily Beast. They posted this list of the most ignorant politiicians, they have done a side-by-side comparison of which party has the worst sex scandals.

    If a survey of the most corrupt politicians is ever done, it will probably be done by Daily Beast.

    Caution: they do have a liberal slant there.

    I see: Howard Dean, former Gov. of Vt., and former democratic candidate for president is not a politician? Micheal Steele, former head of the RNC, is not a politician?

    No - they're not politicians.
    Neither is Sarah Palin nor George Stephanopolous.
    They're "PRIVATE FUCKING CITIZENS."
    Are you fucking this stupid in real life?
