Many observers consider Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) to be the dumbest person in the Senate, perhaps in the entire United States Congress. Consider, for example, this 2002 Murrayism regarding Osama bin Laden:
We’ve got to ask, why is this man so popular around the world? Why are people so supportive of him in many countries that are riddled with poverty? He’s been out in these countries for decades, building schools, building roads, building infrastructure, building day care facilities, building health care facilities, and the people are extremely grateful.
Yeah, women in Taliban-controlled areas like the convenience of dropping the kids off at the day care center before they check themselves in for the whipping or the stoning.
This moron has been appointed by the Democratic leadership to the budget super-committee.
Murray’s brand of politics has plenty to do with the financial situation in which the U.S. now finds itself. See, for example, her threats of retaliation against any Senators who might vote for an anti-pork bill. Just the sort of person one would want to put on a committee to address the deficit.
Michelle Malkin remembers interviewing Murray several years ago:
We were talking about federal entitlement spending. I asked her about FICA taxes. She didn’t know what I was talking about; when I said “payroll taxes,” she still had a frozen blank look on her face.
The Democratic Party is destroying America.
