Vote: Best/Worst Senators

There are several reasons to take a look at (and maybe even vote in) this “Best Senator” poll.

First, you can see where your senators rank.

Second, you can actually see what these people look like. (The answer, of course: white, male.)

Third, there’s the fact that of the first 49 senators ranked by “integrity, honor, dignity and character” only one is a Republican: Chuck Hagel.

Fourth, there’s the fact that of all the Democrats, the only two to not crack the top 50 are Hillary Clinton and Mary Landrieu, of Katrina fame.

Fifth, there’s the parade of crooks and crazy men who do better than Joe Lieberman and John McCain, Nos. 98 and 99 respectively.
