Democratic Pol: We Need Stupider, "Noisier" Reputation

Not the best slogan with which to win a Democratic primary.

"Our congressman is the smartest person in the district, and we might be the only place in the country that can say that," Rinck said. "But he falls somewhat short on the charisma meter. And it might take a somewhat less intelligent -- although much noisier -- person to get some things done for this district."

They're the only district that has a Congressman who's the smartest in the district? Is he saying this guy is that smart, or his constituents are that dumb?

I don't think that's going to fly. Democrats tend to have Lake Woebegone syndrome, where they all imagine they're smarter than average.
