Republican kooks: We have a list

It is not exactly a secret that the GOP is literally full of kooks and conspiracy theorists, and it's not just on the radio. They are in Congress and the Senate.

One of the shinning star kooks of the GOP is Michelle Bachmann, who has proposed an amendment to the US Constitution to prevent the Obama administration from replacing the Dollar with a global currency.

Of course, the Obama administration has no intention of replacing the dollar, and has never suggested anything of the sort.

But Bachmann is a crazy idiot and it seems she's not alone in this. At least 30 House Republicans (15% of all House Republicans) are with her on this, and TPM has the list which sadly includes Missouri's own Todd Akin,
Todd Akin (R-MO)
Spencer Bachus (R-AL)
Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD)
Judy Biggert (R-IL)
Marsha Blackburn (R-TN)
Paul Broun (R-GA)
Henry Brown (R-SC)
Dan Burton (R-IN)
Michael Conaway (R-TX)
John Culberson (R-TX)
Mary Fallin (R-OK)
John Fleming (R-LA)
Virginia Foxx (R-NC)
Phil Gingrey (R-GA)
Louie Gohmert (R-TX)
Jeb Hensarling (R-TX)
Darrell Issa (R-CA)
Walter Jones (R-NC)
Steve King (R-IA)
Mark Kirk (R-IL)
Doug Lamborn (R-CO)
Tom McClintock (R-CA)
Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI)
Ron Paul (R-TX)
Joseph Pitts (R-PA)
Bill Posey (R-FL)
Tom Price (R-GA)
David Roe (R-TN)
John Shadegg (R-AZ)
Glenn Thompson (R-PA)
Zach Wamp (R-TN)
All Missourians should call Congressman Akin's office and ask if he is serious about this matter and why he is so frivolous with Constitutional amendments.
