LOL...

If they're all true, we're beyond help.

But I do believe I remember reading a few of them way back when... 80's, 90's or there about!

Maybe they are smarter now than similar politicians were in the past.

An item about ridiculous questions supposedly asked of travel agents by “clueless” Congresspersons is yet another instance of an old bit of generic humor’s being modified to apply to contemporary politicians. We’ve collected examples of this list of howlers dating from as back as far as 1998, and those earlier versions failed to identify the geographically challenged as members of Congress, instead presenting them as ‘a client,’ ‘a secretary,’ ‘a man,’ ‘another man,’ and so forth. Those earlier versions also began with a preface that trumpeted the collection as “Actual stories from a variety of Travel Agents” rather than the politically repositioned "Actual stories provided by a retiring Washington, D.C. travel agent of 30+ years".

Snopes? You've got to be kidding me. They are about as liberal as it gets.

Which Congressperson paid them to say that?

Which makes me wonder... perhaps all of them were Democrats? (* CHUCKLE *)

Because if all of them were Republicans, Snopes would have never printed this!

Regardless of the factchecking source, surely you didn't think those were true but it would be plausible with some of our current Congress critters, mostly female.

All of them no... some of them yes...

I wouldn’t touch that one.  Why do you assume women don’t understand the laws of physics or matter?
