Take our poll: What word should Congress use to replace lunatic?

In what just might be the funniest, serious news story of the week,  House votes to remove word ‘lunatic’ from federal law, Michael Dorstewitz writes the following:

On Wednesday, the U.S. House of Representatives followed a previous Senate vote in removing the word “lunatic” from federal law. The vote was 398 to one.

Texas Republican Louie Gohmert cast the sole “nay” vote.

“Not only should we not eliminate the word ‘lunatic’ from federal law when the most pressing issue of the day is saving our country from bankruptcy,” Gohmert said in an e-mailed statement. “We should use the word to describe the people who want to continue with business as usual in Washington.”

We wecrazy catre curious what  should replace the word lunatic now that they have voted it out? What do you think is more appropriate?

    My choice wasn't listed because it's inappropriate, I'm sure. However, Nut Job is closest to the 4 letter words I'm thinking of! I like "nut job." I very often say, "he's nuts," "your nuts," "I'm nuts," "she's having a nutty," "he's a nutter." So, yes. I'm content with Nut Job.

    Thanks BPR!

    I cannot believe that with all the urgent problems there are right now, that the House would be wasting time on something so stupid-they are lunatics!

  • sunflower

    I think Libtard would be appropriate

    • Lynne Johnson

      What a bunch of lunatics in congress!!!!! Let them choose the world they like best since they are describing themselves. I am sick to my stomach that our government has turned into such a despicable heap of rubbish. I can't find any beacon of hope there anymore!

  • Starla Brown

    Yes, well that was certainly a productive legislative day (insert sarcasm here)

  • Danny

    I would have said "Obama Voter"

  • Ron Jackson

    Moron might fit

  • Lorie

    I can't vote because my choices weren't listed. Such as "impotent", "lame duck", "narcissistic ***holes", "don't give a rats a** about the people that put them there", etc., so forth, and so on.
