I never though I'd live to see the day where someone in Congress is more RW than Helen Chenoweth

While there have been many who were more racist in Congress than Chenoweth (Steve King in the House, Jesse Helps in the Senate). never had there been anyone as bat-shit crazy and right-wing as her (in my 47 years at least). This was someone that was the poster child for militias (she actually hung out with them!), and who railed against "black helicopters" and the "evil government."

Well she can rest easy though, because Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene both have her beat, and it's not even that close. My only question is who is crazier?

At least our craziest from that time period (Cynthia McKinney) has not and probably never will be surpassed, and we weeded her out of the Party. Their side however is insane all they are over the place. I fully expect them both to be overtaken with someone crazier by 2024.

1. Is that pronounced Lorena Bobbit?

Have you heard the story about her and her husband and the bowling alley?

2. Possibly Michelle Bachman.

I'm not sure if she's actually crazier than Boebert and Greene, but she's a strong competitor.

5. Helen was definitely more right-wing than Bachman

Bachman was crazier, but most of that was because she said religiously insane statements. Chenoweth was purer, and more intelligent. These new freshmen are stupid, crazy, and right-wing. Bob Dornan was another.

3. Well there's a name I haven't heard in a long time...

She set a high bar for lunacy.

6. Well, she held the title for 20 years

The only credit that I give her was the she was consistent and not hypocritical. She supported a three-term limit for House members. After her third term, she refused to run for a forth.

7. As a son of the state of Idaho

I have no good things to say about Helen.

4. Marjorie Taylor Greene is a clear and present danger, and she must be removed immediately.

She is dangerous, as is Lauren Boebert. They both must be removed and arrested for their involvement in last week's riots before they can do any further damage. :grrL

8. This Idahoan mostly agrees.

Chenowith-Hage's predecessor Steve Syms was in the same league, IMO.

Though as another poster said she had a purity of kookiness that was largely unmatched.

10. I remember spending time in the pre-internet days verifying

a quote attributed to him that the US should regularly shoot down Cuban aircraft and claim innocence while blaming the downing on weather or other factors. Typical blather from him.
